Default laptop for under $500

My friend is looking for a laptop for under $500. He owns a small business (personal training) and will most likely be using it for that. Not going to be doing any gaming or anything like that. I was looking at these 2 laptops. Let me know what you think or if you guys have any other suggestions. Thanks.


Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS5750Z-4835 Notebook Intel Pentium B940(2.00GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi Intel HD Graphics

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire A5560-7414 Notebook AMD A-Series A6-3420M(1.5GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi AMD Radeon HD 6520G

Actually, I'd rather recommend this one: Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS5733-6426 Notebook Intel Core i3 380M(2.53GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi Intel HD Graphics

Has a new i3 in it. I have one similar this, and I'm loving it.

Both of them are good laptops. Along with them i request you to look for 'HP Pavilion dm1z' one most reliable laptop under $500.
