Looks to be a decent lappy. It has a good CPU, plenty of memory and a large hard drive. The graphics system is a bit weak, but if your not a gamer of any sorts, it should work well for you.

I actually plan on playing Diablo 3 when that comes out. The only other choice for graphics card is

512MB NVIDIA GeForce G 105M +$150.00

and its 150 more. Is it worth getting it?

Wow, neither of those graphics choices are very good. If what I have read about D3 are correct, it should run fine on a lower end system.

Where are you considering getting this laptop? I've seen better units with larger 17" screens going for that much.

If you had around $700. What would the best laptop you would buy?

I will use it to watch movies (I have a 17 monitor I could hook up and then through HDMI a large flatscreen tv.)

I will play a few games not many though.

Needs a large hard drive and a fast processor.

Is that the one you would get? Or what about

I like the second one of your three choices. It has a larger screen and better graphics. Speed wise, the CPUs are very comparable.
