These are all from best buy, I'm hoping to do some gaming with it plus school work, i want to be able to run almost any application if possible and some games, such as crysis, wow, COD, etc.
I would be doing more gaming than anything else though, and I know how these are not really gaming machines but i'm on a budget guys.
I read how intel HD sucks but the HP laptop is the only one with i3 which is newer than the other cpu's.
I saw some vids on youtube, gaming with an i3 intel hd and they look good, they actually made me want to buy the i3 machine. But I need someone else's opinion with this. Would you guys recommend the i3 new technology, or go with the one of the AMD laptops. Any advice will be highly appreciated, aswell as pointing me to a better laptop on my budget.

Thanks!!!
