Default Best Laptop for $650 and under?

I'm looking to choose between these 4...

HP Pavilion dm3-1030us NoteBook

Acer Aspire AS5739G-6959 NoteBook

HP G61-320US NoteBook


I occasionally do a lot of MS Word as well a college student, messaging, YouTubing, and inter browsing, not to mention I multitask all of these apps as well.

I'm looking to find a fast laptop that doesn't overheat with long periods of use(2-3 hours), also I would like 2.5+ hours of battery life.

Other suggestions are welcomed as well.

EDIT: I would like to mention that I listen to music half the time whenever I'm on a computer, so decent or top-notch speakers wouldn't hurt.

I agree with Druid.

You could easily get a mp3 player and just play your music from that.
