I'm trying to buy a laptop but I don't want to throw down a lot of cash on it. I've done some research but I'm still not sure which one is best. I have to buy it from my local Walmart so I've narrowed it down to these 3 in stock. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. HP 15.6" 2000-314nr Laptop PC with AMD E-450 Accelerated Processor, 1.65GHz, 1MB L2 Cache, 6-cell lithium-ion battery, 4GB memory; 500GB hard drive ($341)

2. Gateway 15.6" NE56R10u Laptop PC with Intel Celeron B820 Processor, 1.70GHz, 2MB L3 Cache, 6-cell lithium-ion battery, 3GB memory; 320GB hard drive ($300)

3. Acer 17.3" AS7250-3821 Laptop PC with AMD E-Series Dual-Core E-450 Processor, 1.65GHz, 1MB L2 Cache, 6-cell lithium-ion battery, 4GB memory; 500GB hard drive ($368)

I'd say it comes down this way No. 1 and no. 3 everything is the same for performance. Same CPU, Har ddrive size, Memory. The main difference is 15.6" Screen vs 17.3" screen. I would also expect #3 to be heavier.

Number 2, ummm....... less memory, smaller hard drive.

Just remember if you are lugging it all over the place they get heavy quick. Also if you think you want the bigger screen buy it now since it isn't upgradable for screen size.

Good Luck
