Which one should I get?

Hi there, I was wondering if you guys could help me choose a notebook. I will use it for my university tasks, so I need one that's easily transportable and have a nice battery life. I'll use it for MS Office, , some video editing software (light use), web surfing, MSN, music, and watch movies (720p preferably).

So far I saw these:

Levono G460-067764Y
i3 380M
3GB DDR3
500GB HDD
Intel HD Graphics
14" LCD Screen

Toshiba L645-SP4135
i3 380M
320 GB HDD
3 GB DDR3
Intel Graphics HD
14" Screen (I assume its LCD, not LED)

Msi A6200
i3 380M
4GB DDR3 1066mhz
500GB HDD
Intel Graphics HD
15.6" LCD Screen

ASUS K52JT
i3 380M
3GB DDR3 1066mhz
AMD Radeon® HD 6370 ,1G DDR3 VRAM
500GB HDD
15.6" LED Backlight Screen

The MSI its a lot cheaper than the rest, plus bigger HDD, more RAM and bigger screen (although I prefer a 14" for the portability).
So far, the ASUS looks like the best choice, and its in the same price than the rest. Im not sure if the HD 6370 its better than a Integrated Intel HD Graphics, but it has to be...

What do you guys think?

Thanks

More about which
  1. Depending on what else you have to carry around, for most people the portability between 14-15 inch notebooks is not that great, and of those choices the Asus is the better unit.
    without a doubt, better overall performer, although I think you would get better battery from the Lenovo.
  2. What about a netbook? For example, the ASUS 1215T

    would it be good for multitasking?
  3. what are you going to use the laptop for? Its only for typing, than the integrated graphics should be enough. The new sandy bridge graphics are really not that bad.
  4. MS Office, MSN, web browsing, music and movies

    also, which one is better, Nvidia GT 425M or HD6370? for what i've seen, the GT 425M is a lot better

    this one looks great

    In my opinion, Asus is the best quality and long-lasting, and also packed with features. Although it is rather expensive. So that is why there Toshiba. Same thing, just cheaper. Hope this helps!
