Help with new laptop...3 choices

  Jem"Hadar 21:45 20 Aug 2014

Hi I am trying to decide between 3 laptops. I have posted specs below. I wasn't sure what specs to post so please let me know If I am missing a key point. I am interested in a touchscreen laptop. My main activities: web surfing, watching movies, gaming(I would like to be able to play Sim City, The Sims 3 and maybe 4, Minecraft and possibly WoW)and basics like word processing, listening to music, maybe skype. My budget is around $600-$800 I am not sure what else to add. I really appreciate any help with this as I have been researching for a while now and feel I am going in circles. I am open to other choices as well as long as they meet certain criteria. I really appreciate everyone's time and help with this.Thank you very much.

It is the gaming that will drive what specs you require. The remainder are fairly low requirements. Suggest that the Sony is over specced.
