    that would be my choice also, but from the first 3? because i am on a very tight budget.

    if you got to have the laptop now then the 3. Fujitsu Amilo Li3710. but if you can wait then get the Acer Aspire 5738ZG-432G32Mn

    This Acer Aspire AS5732Z-4598 with Intel Pentium T4400(2.20GHz) Intel GMA 4500M NoteBook - falls into your third option's range (if you can find it at your location).

    - Intel Pentium T4400(2.20GHz)
    - 4GB Memory
    - Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    - 250GB HDD
    - Optical Drive Type: DVD Super Multi
    - Chipset: Intel GL40
    - Resolution: 1366 x 768
    - LCD Features: 15.6" Acer CineCrystal Technology
    - Memory Speed: DDR2 667
    - WLAN: 802.11b/g/Draft-N WLAN

    And I believe its much better option than that Celeron based Fujitsu

    today i bought the laptop. i will have it tomorrow. and it's none of the above.

    ASUS K50IJ-SX173L

    Intel Core 2 Duo mobile T5870, 2000 mhz, 2048 kb Level 2, fsb 800, Intel GL40 Express
    ram 2048 MB DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400
    hdd: 250 GB, SATA, 5400 RPM
    display: 15.6" LED
    video: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 M

    new, 2 year warranty for 419 euro.

    i preferred this one instead of the acer because it had 2 year warranty, a core 2 duo procesor and a longer baterry life

    did i make a good decision?
