    Well, just based on the specs, the ACER Ferrari is the winner. Plus it looks better than the others. Better video card, 1GB memory vs. 512 in the others, and it just seems to have everything you'd ever need. All come with a 1-year warranty, so none are better in this regard. I know that Dell uses alot of proprietary stuff in their machines, which makes it more difficult to change anything. They're all good machines, but the Acer Ferrari is just the better of the four.

    Thanks Jones, I also think same but anyone other that i have missed which is better than these than please post. Dont post Alienware notebooks because they are best in the market but very costly.

    And also need more help regarding AMD Turion 64bit. I know these are not better than AMD Athlon but this processor stands somewhere in competition with AMD or Pentium processors.

    Well, I think you've chosen a pretty nice laptop. Unless you want to spend more money and build a complete custom machine, there won't be alot of other choices at the same price range that are any different from the ones you're already looking at.

    I'm not really familiar with AMD chips, but I usually hear very good things. I'm sure another member of these forums will offer their opinion about the Turion chip.
