Well, the GPU of the first three (left to right) are the worst. The last 2, however, are well matched. The best is 540m followed by the 5650. If this is for gaming, then I would go by that.

the QM CPU's are based off sandybridge, so I'd get those over the i5's.

Everything else is about the same.

The verdict? Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS5750G-9639 Notebook Intel Core i7 2630QM(2.00GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

What are you going to do with this? I already told you what of the 5 are the best. If you don't want to go with my suggestions, how am I supposed to help you?
