I don't have many choices at the moment so I posted what I thought would be the best of the selection, also if anyone could rate them from first to third in order of which would work best in-case 1 or 2 is unavailable because of price please do. Thanks to any who reply :)

The amd a8 would be your best bet out of these options. If you can find one in it with a10 it would be even better.

What is your budget, and why are you limited to those?

I'm not sure if you are dead set on 17 inch screen or if your budget will allow this but, this is what i would recommend if your budget is ~1k. It is only 15.6 inch but its 1920x1080 resolution.

Edit: None of the laptops you have listed will run WoW on ultra... maybe medium if you are lucky. The one I linked will play ultra with no problem, I have no idea what your budget is or why you have a restriction on what you can pick however. I personally wouldn't pay anything for any of those laptops lol, well unless i wanted something to just do basic things with no gaming...
