What is more important to make a Computer run smoothly at high speeds..... The cache memory or Processor Frequency ?.... Do higher frequency processors produce more heat ? If so, should I look for lower frequencies with high cache memory ?

More about : speed depends processor frequency cache memory

Typically a lower clocked CPU will have less heat than the same CPU with a higher frequency, yes. However I wouldn't let that scare you from the higher clocked CPUs.

Frequency and Cache are both important factors in smooth computing. I would look for a mix between high cache and frequency.

Maybe you can tell us your budget and needs and we can help you find one.

the Pavilion 'should' prevail at gaming with dedicated graphics...but...

none of the 3 are really adept at gaming, beyond perhaps Quake III/MOH....

You might price some of the newer Fusion APU A6/A8 based laptops if possible....
