It would be nice with if I could send a signal from my computer to my television, so I can watch movies I have on my computer on my tv. But on which of the 3 laptops do I get most value for the money?
Hope you're not planning on gaming on ANY of those laptops. You don't mention prices so I'm assuming that's not an issue... #2 would be my pick. The third laptop looks fine, but if you're going to put up with Vista you might as well have the Premium version... thus, #3 is disqualified.
Oh, I've seen laptops for under $1000 that are coming with GPUs like a Nvidia Go 7600... no, you're not going to be a hard-core gamer with that, but it'll play damned near every game out right now... the 3 laptops you listed won't.
I'm not planning on gaming on them. My little brother is turning 18 soon, so my parents want to buy him a laptop. He doesn't really game. It's mostly old games or emulators and such. And all the laptops cost the same.
Btw I suppose you can't use an xp office cd-rom in Vista, right?
