Which laptop to get?

  axelified 17:19 06 Oct 2009

My Dell laptop literally died on me yesterday, so I've began thinking about possibly purchasing another laptop.

I've come across two that catch my eye but I want an opinion on whether the processor is good enough (I like AMD, but I don't know much about this chip), and whether the actual laptop is worth looking into.

The first is an Acer 5536 with AMD Athlon processor QL-64, 4GB RAM, and 320GB. It comes into the sale a little cheaper at £379.

The second is a Compaq CQ60 with 4GB but only 160GB HD.. however its not all about space I guess. :\ This one has a AMD Athlon QL65 chip.

Lastly there's the Asus X5DIJ with an Intel Core 2 Duo T5870 processor, 3GB RAM and 320GB HD.

I don't know much about Asus, myself.

If anyone could tell me whether one is better over the other, I'm just trying to get the best for what I can afford right now. Thanks for any help :)
