Need help to pick between these laptops! Dell/Acer/Lenovo

I need some help guys!
This is going to be my first notebook purchase.

My budget is around $600 , and i have been researching laptops for over a month now.
I will be using the laptop for downloading movies and music. Using ITUNES, burning dvds and cds. Also very heavily internet browsing. And will be watching youtube a lot, while multitasking...

I also want to play STARCRAFT 2!! Thats pretty much the only video game i want to play on a computer at this moment. (loved starcraft) ..

These are the laptops i have narrowed my search down too. But need help deciding!
Because watching movies and LISTENTING TO MUSIC , are my top priorities!!!
Need a good sounding laptop!

  1. just for reference intel hd 3000 graphics will play crysis 2 at about 15 fps maxish and my 540m will play at about 33ish normal then closer to 38 overclocked. that is all on medium setting btw. so just some info to ponder.
