    It's more processor-oriented. That processor looks capable of doing Dolphin indeed and if my integrated Intel Graphics can somewhat push out Dolphin, the graphics card in there should do you well. I'd give it an okay, although I'd also wait to see what others would say.

    The laptop should be able to run comfortably but if you want to run WiiU games on cemu down the road, consider going for something a little more powerful. Also careful with disk hard drives, they usually break after a year or so playing games on laptops.

    CPU seems to be an 6700HQ, and it's more than enough to run Dolphin. However, the GPU is a R9 M375, which isn't that great. With that, you will probably be able to play GC and Wii games at native resolution, but don't count too much on using graphical enhancements (antialiasing, higher resolution, etc). You also won't be able to play many newer games, so if you want to use this laptop for gaming, you might want to invest in a more powerful one. However, it will be enough if you only want to emulate older consoles and won't play newer AAA titles (released after 2014).

    It doesn't take much to run Dolphin these days, things have changed a lot since it came out. Even a low end i3/i5 (maybe except ULV ones) with the integrated GPU can run games at native res, and with a dedicated GPU, even a low end one like in that laptop, you should be able to do 720p, and that's me being conservative, it might do 1080p no problem or even more.
