Hi! I'm waiting to buy a laptop until Windows 7 to be dispatched with laptops, which is in two days!! :) :)

I want something quite portable (13"/14") with some powerful features, my budget is approx. £750-900, as I will buy it in the UK.

I need your advice to choose from these laptops I'm considering:


Asus N81VP-VX044V


Samsung Q320

Toshiba Satellite U500-178

Thank you very much in advance for your comments and help!!

I would really need one with optical drive though.

I want them for everyday use and multimedia (Photoshop, InDesign,) and GIS and CAD uses, rarely pushed to maximum with these software.

So I prefer to have more RAM, with balance powerful features with price and portabilty.

Will it actually be noticeable a 64bits SO version?
