    If you fill out the sticky, we can help you better. It's there for a reason ;)

    For reference, judging quality based on brand alone doesn't work. For example, a HP Pavilion (or other consumer laptop) won't hold a candle against a HP Elitebook.

    the L955 is weakest on preformance as it is low energy consuming (or pretends to be). If i were you i´d not buy either of them.

    ThinkPad Edge E535 15.6" Laptop | Shop | Lenovo | (US)

    have a look at those, configuere them with the A10 processor and 8gb RAM and a 7.200 RPM hard disc and you got your self a nice preforming quality laptop

    then i´d get the edge 530 instead. But why no AMD?

    For that money you are not going to get a 1080p display i am afraid :(

    If L955 is weakest - What about these two ?

    HP Envy m6-1125dx

    Toshiba Satellite S855-S5377

    The reason I wanna stick with these is because deals are available for black friday on these (see prices on my first post above) - I am sure buying directly from manufacturer will cost me more - money plays a big role for me in buying laptop.

    At the lenovo web shop there are some nice discounts now about 65$. I think that you could get an A10 with 8gb RAM and 7.200RPM for around 600$. Or intel i3 or i5 8gb RAM and 7.200RPm for around 600$. But why not go AMD. The advantages of those edge series are its faster hard disc and matte screen and better built qaulity and keyboard.

    Could you please rank these 3 for me ? (based on your priority for these laptops - on performance / quality / support available from manufacturer / battery life)
