Default Laptop Help


I am currently looking for a laptop to purchase. I will use it for:

1. Note taking
2. Word/Excel Documents
3. Internet, of course
4. Programming
5. Mild gaming
6. Dual Booting Linux
7. Etc.

I am looking at a few 13.3" and 14" ones on Amazon. I need to keep it on Amazon because they are having 12 months interest free financing (and I already have the necessary card).

Here's a list of the ones I have been looking at:

A little hesitant because no reviews, but I am somewhat drawn to the 14"
Acer 1
Acer 2

The following Asus has decent reviews, but the slower processor have me wondering how much slower the laptop is compared to the above two.
Asus 1
Asus 2

I am fairly certain I want a 13"-14" screen, but since I will be programming, a larger screen/higher resolution might be worthwhile. I don't want to spend more than $750 before tax. I am leaning towards the Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820T-6645, but can't really find any reviews. I hate to invest in this and have issues with it. Thank you for any assistance/guidance.
