    Picked as best answer

    I would probably pick the Acer Aspire V3-571G-6641.

    This has a Intel chip in it(I prefer over AMD).
    It has the better GeForce GT 630M graphics card installed in it.
    It will take up to 8GB or memory on Windows 7 x64.

    Appears to be a nice laptop for the price.
