Like all things computery we are spoiiled for choice.

You are well on the way t to finding the the one to fulfill your needs,because the specs are listed,you have done your research.

Perhaps a little too specific.

Because the brands do things differently for a similar result,so dont get hung up on specifics.

For exeample,whilst geeks are certain to argue fine points,in use there little to choose between Ibtel or AMD in performane, and being a laptop you dont get to choose,as they are assenelages of common perts ,the 9nly difference really is the name on the lid and your choice of colour-black/silver or a seductive polychrome shade.
