Hi, they all look ok for the price .. I would go with the Desktop and the Advent laptop.

PS - if it has to be one or the other, then I would go for the Desktop!

You will almost always get a better spec desktop PC for the same amount of money over a Laptop although the gap is closing. I have had a laptop for almost a year and I hardly use my desktop now. Lying on my back on the Sofa surfing the web or playing the occasional game you can't beat it. I am definitely a convert to the Laptop.
