I'm looking to purchase a new low cost laptop for general home use: email, web browsing, MS word & excel, music storage, etc and have it narrowed down to 3 units:

HP Pavilion 15z ( V0N65AV_1) --------COST $370

AMD Dual-Core A9-9410 APU (2.9 GHz, up to 3.5 GHz, 1 MB cache) + AMD Radeon™ R5 Graphics
8GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8GB)
15.6" diagonal HD SVA BrightView WLED-backlit (1366 x 768)
1TB 5400 rpm SATA

HP Pavilion 15t (T9Y98AV_1)---------COST $420

Intel® Core™ i3-6100U (2.3 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores) + Intel® HD Graphics 520
6GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 2GB, 1 x 4GB)
15.6" diagonal HD SVA BrightView WLED-backlit (1366 x 768)
1TB 5400 rpm SATA

Dell Inspiron 15 5000-----------------COST $512

6th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processo
8 GB Memory dual channel 1600Mhz

1TB Hard Drive  5400 rpm

Taking into account the cost & what I'm getting as a package, I'm curious what looks like my best purchase?

@djfro Second one looks perfect but choose according to your daily use, if doing any heavy performance task then will suggest to go for i5.

If your budget allows it, i'd take number 3. I have one and it is really fast, well made, durable and light.
