To touch on gaming
We've seen sub-$500 netbooks handle these two titles fairly well, but those netbooks had discrete GPUs or chipset IGPs, that the Inspiron Duo lacks. Then again, we've never even attempted to run these two titles on a tablet, so when you realize that at least it'll run these games at all, it's somewhat impressive from that point of view. It's really in how you look at it. The bottom line, however, is that the Duo isn't cut out for gaming, and you should look elsewhere if you need a highly mobile machine that can play first-person shooters. Perhaps a role playing title or online game could be in order but nothing too fast-action.
