Default Can't decide between these laptops for Uni

I need a laptop for Uni but i am terrible with tech and can't decide which one is best. I know PCs are better at gaming but it's impossible for me to take a PC to uni when i come back home every other week, also the ONLY game i would be playing is WoW which i believe is much less intense than the normal PC games like Crysis 2 etc. So i need a Laptop that can run WoW and the internet at the same time, maybe with itunes in the background, i found these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acer-Aspir...ht_1514wt_1396

http://www.ebuyer.com/291789-acer-as...p-lx-rv402-018

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/asus-a...48423-pdt.html

http://www.ebuyer.com/279523-acer-as...p-lx-rhj02-175

Thanks!

Your post had to be moderated. Only just saw it this morning.

I would advise against getting it from eBay. You never know when you'd be ripped off.

It looks like either of the Acer systems look good. Even the i5 will suit you. Both graphics are neck and neck.

I would get the Timeline model. It is sleeker than the 5755G. But that's my take.

I'd personally steer clear of eBay unless you're happy with a used laptop. I've bought a couple on there advertised as new, but they've just been restored and put back in the box. I'd have to agree with mindovermaster, go for the Timeline

all have Intel 2nd Gen Processors (Sandy Bridge), better go for Intel 3rd Gen Processors (Ivy Bridge), they are much faster then 2nd gen processors,

I don't think the 3rd gens are widely implemented into laptops yet.

Not by much, but they are an improvement. Not worth missing a good deal for Ivy over Sandy, IMHO.

Getting there, I'd say 50% have em' now, from what I've seen.
