    Want to buy a new laptop - what whould you advice?

    I've researched the market and I am ready to buy a notebook in a few days. Now, I have to choose between 4 models (2 turion64 and 2 centrino).
    What do you thing? What would you recommend?
    Let’s suppose the price is the same, the height is not so important, power consume is important (but not extremely important) and that I have no interest in running games. Running Linux under very good condition is the most important thing.

    1) Acer Aspire 5003WLMi - AMD Turion64 1.8GHz, 512 cache (L2), HDD 80 G, RAM 512, SiSM760GX, 15.4''

    2) HP Pavilion dv5115nr - turion64 1.8 Ghz, 512 cache (L2), HDD 80 GB, 512 RAM, ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M IGP (dedicated), 15.4''

    3) Compaq Presario - V4435NR, Centrino 1.7 GHz, hdd 80 GB, 512 RAM, 400Mhz Bus, 2M Cache(L2),Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 900, 15.4''

    4) Acer Aspire 1640 - Centrino 1.7 Ghz, HDD 80 GB, 512 RAM, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, 15.4''

    Thanks you for your advices

    all centrino means is that it has an M processor and a wireless card. don't pay extra for a centrino name if you can find pentium M with a wireless card elsewhere cheaper. i don't have experience with the turions so can't help you there.
