Acer Aspire 3935 or Travelmate Timeline 8371 or 3810tz?


I've been trying for the last 3 days to decide between these 3 laptops.
The main differences are as follows.
The 3935 has a P7550 @ 2.26 and 250 gb hdd
The 8371 Has an su9400 @ 1.4 ghz 320gb hdd and ati 4330 gpu
The 3810 has an su4100 @ 1.3 ghz and 320 gb hdd

All of them have 4gb Ram
Only the 8371 has dedicated graphics
Only the 3810 has an HDMI out
Only the 3810 comes with windows 7

The other two come with vista home or business

I can't decide which one to get, I'm worried that the ulv processors will be painfully slow but at the same time I want battery life and a laptop that looks pretty neat too.

In terms of what I intend to use it for: Mostly Streaming online video inc HD, e-mailing and browsing and word processing, some games but only really really old simple ones, I have an xbox 360 for anything else

Screen size: I want something smaller than what I have (15.4")
So that I can take it on the train with me to do work on etc 13.3" Max

How long will I keep it? 2-3 years

How much do I have to spend? £500 or less

How much battery life do I need? Ideally 5hours+ or enough to take on a 2hour train journey and back

What country am I from? England

Think thats all the info.
So basically I was just wondering what people thought I should go for or if there was something else out there they could recommend?

  1. I forgot to mention that if you can find something with an i3 processor and W7 in it that is within your budget range, I'd think about that first.
  2. If you are worried about processor performance, take a look at this link:

    Out of the ones you have there, I'd recommend the 3935, as you'll get the most bang for your buck computing wise, i.e. it will be quick all around for your specific use. Plus, I wouldn't expect you to need a dedicated GPU to play really old games.
