These are the 5 laptops that I was looking at. The first one seems much worse than the rest since it has a worse video card and the display isn't 1080p.

For the 2nd and 3rd ones, they are virtually the same price, but the 2nd one has a smaller screen which would make it easier to move around I suppose, while the 3rd one has a better video card (I think??) but the screen resolution is 1080p in the 2nd and not in the 3rd. Also the 2nd one is on sale from 1500 while the 3rd is on sale from 1400...

And for the last two, 4th and 5th, I would rather not go that much higher in price, but if they are much much better, I would think about it for sure. Instead of the 4th, I guess the 5th is way better since it has 1080p in it.

Which company has better build quality: Asus, Acer, or MSI?
Also I prefer the 2nd one right now because of the smaller screen, but I would go for one of the others if the performance is way better.

How much better is the 5870 compared to the 5850 and also each compared to the GTS 360m?

Thanks a lot to anyone that checks this out for me and helps me out. :)
