Default Picking a Laptop Out of These. Help?

I've found a few laptops with the help of tj_extreme. Which one would be the best for everyday use and gaming?

Note: I'm going to keep on adding in more I find until I decide one.

My priorities in order:

1. Performance. Processor, graphics card, etc.
2. How well it can multitask. Somewhere along the lines of having a music player open, 1-3 tabs, and Minecraft or another game.
3. How cool it can stay. My laptop currently I bet runs at 80C with just Minecraft on. It can roast a pig....
4. Battery life. Weight is also tied for number four.
5. Size. 15.6 inches and higher is good for me but less is fine too.

ASUS N56VM-TB71 Laptop Computer - 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3610QM 2.3GHz, 8GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, DVDRW, 15.6 Full HD, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Black, 1-Yr Warranty / 1-Yr Accidental Damage at TigerDirect.com

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Series 7 NP700Z3A-S06US Notebook Intel Core i5 2450M(2.50GHz) 14" 8GB Memory 1TB HDD DVD Super Multi AMD Radeon HD 6490M (PowerXpress)

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire TimelineU M5-481TG-6814 Ultrabook Intel Core i5 3317U(1.70GHz) 14" 4GB Memory 500GB HDD + 20GB SSD HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE

If you have any reccommendations I would REALLY appreciate that. Budget is around $900. Thanks!

New ones I find:

I'd be very happy with that ASUS. Has a good i7 and gfx card.

The only reason I would pick the Acer, is because I know Acers to be cool. I have one myself (in sig). Even while stress testing it, the temps never went above 70C, and the bottom remained rather cool. You can put your hand under it and leave it there for a time.

But if it is performance you want, go with the ASUS.
