The Pentium m is going to beat the turion at just about every benchmark plus it will have much better battery life. If you have the money, go with the Pentium m. That said, I didn't have the money and chose to go with the turion in my Compaq v2000z and I absolutely LOVE it, but I don't play any games on it. The L2000 has onboard video (same as my v2000z) which just flat out won't play games. If you are in to playing newer games, especially FPS games, you won't want the L2000 - the frame rates will be terrible. The x700 is a very nice card and will play new games at medium textures smoothly.
If you're going to go with an Acer, you should look at buying a whitebox acer and adding your own hard drive, processor, memory and wireless nic. You can save a lot of money if you are comfortable building computers.
One other option for you is the Dell Inspiron 6000D (the 6000 comes in non-dedicated video card and dedicated video card options - the D denotes dedicated). It has an x300 which will play games better than the 200M of the L2000, but it's a 15.4" screen. You can probably get a 6000D with dedicated video for around $1100 if you wait for a good deal.
