I have a question for laptop experts AND people that own or had a chance to test the laptops mentioned in the title.

I would like to know any pros or cons that comes into your mind buying any of this laptops and in the end of course which would you recommend. I will use it mostly for college. I study computer science. I will also watch movies on it while away from home (I have 24'' monitor at home) and now and then play some high end games on it (not much, really). I think all the laptops mentioned is good enough for me, but I'm willing to pay for any of this three, so I won't just take cheaper. I want the best I can get for the money. I have already gone through a million of offers and this is the final shortlist for me so please concentrate only on this laptops. Also storage in laptop is not important. I will install the SSD anyway. I have already checked the reviews on notebookcheck.net but I would still like to hear some more comments about battery life under different load conditions.

have you seen these in store? I recently looked at laptops on the net but when in the store was disappointed with the cheap flimsy case on a good spec lenovo, the acer just did not appeal either.

Acer is not an option anymore because it only comes with one 8GB ram slot. I haven't seen lenovo in shops though. Could you tell some more about it?

I can only comment on ones I saw in JL. I had been on the net and Lenovo was my choice but seeing them in store was very disappointed by flimsy black cheap looking laptop frame. In the end went for a toshiba with the standard metal case it was lower spec but finding it very fast and impressed. Has onboard graphics so might not be good for gaming.
