Default Which laptop out of these three?

Hello everyone, After days of sifting through various laptops, I have reduced the options to three. The problem now is, which one?
I will be using the laptop for internet surfing and studying will make up the bulk of the laptop usage. Gaming, downloading and listening to music will come second, and watching videos and whatever else you can do will be the minority.
The games I'll be playing are not really graphic intensive compared to FPS games. I'll be playing things such as Sims 2, Age of Empires III, Spore, Diablo III (when it's released), Warcraft III - basically games which keeps you amused for about an hour before you return back to work (or studying in my case).
My budget is 700 maximum:

1). Toshiba Satellite A300D-15B PSAKCE-00K00DEN From Laptops Direct
2). Samsung R560 Laptop NP-R560-AS02UK From Laptops Direct
3). Acer Aspire 7720G - Santa Rosa T7500, 3GB, 500GB, 17in LX.ANU0U.106 From Laptops Direct

Thank you!

I would say any of the first 2 listed unless you must have a 17" screen which would make it heavier and more of a hassle to move around.

AMD Phenom II x6 1045T @ 2.7 Ghz
8GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
Crucial M500 240GB SSD (boot drive)
500GB WD 5000AAKX-001CA0
1.5 TB Seagate ST1500DM003
Zotac Geforce GTX 950 2GB GDDR5
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
