I would vote for this one - better processor than both of the others and still within the budget

I am seriously looking at the N81 though - less money and more of a laptop than a desktop replacement

I personally don't like the glossy and huge Bezel on these ASUS but if that doesn't bother u than this is the one to get

G51J-A1

when they get some back in stock that is

the N81 is better priced on Amazon
