    hd size on any the above will meet my needs.
    The Acer obviously has the best specs but people (not necessarily computer savy people, which I definitely am not) tell me acer is not a well built laptop with terrible support. Is this true? Which of the 3 above is the best bang for the buck taking quality build, specs, etc into account?
