Which one is better??? I am an entering college freshman. I will be in the Information and Computer Science College at UCI. I might do some programming and may or may not want to install other operating systems. I wanted to be able to play COD Modern Warfare 2 occasionally. The three are pretty similar, but which one is the best overall out of the three. Thanks in advance.

If you are looking for the most bang for your buck, I'd go for the Y560. The 5730 is a slightly better GPU and and you're getting a bit better processor over the i5 450 (just a bit better).

Which Y560? The 06465AU or 06462QU model? Yes, one of the y560 laptops (06465AU) has a slightly better processor, but the 06462QU has 32 GB SSD? And im not sure if this is the RapidDrive.

Go with the last one (06462QU - Black),because first of all 5730M performs better than 5650M, and between the last two options, the main difference is in CPU speed(Which isn't noticeable) and SSD(which is noticeable in boot times,load times etc)

Oh ok. I'm just wondering if this is the RapidDrive on the 06462QU because it doesn't specify on any site where it is sold. It just states it has a 32 GB SSD. Regardless, the SSD still makes a noticeable difference right? Oh and is it true that if you use your computer for gaming, it lowers the lifespan of your computer?

Like i said,it makes a difference in boot-times,load times etc.It doesn't affect the gaming performance.
I don't know where you've read that it lower the life span but its not true.

Oh alright. I've read this on other forums saying that if you use your computer a lot for gaming, it messes it up faster. But i guess it's not true. One question, is a computer with a 2.26GHz Intel Core i3-350M, 4GB (2x2GB) RAM, and 320GB 5400rpm Hard Drive a good enough computer?

Yes its fine for daily tasks(its even fine for apps like PS and if the VGA is good,it will be a low-mid range gaming)
