I've been told by my computer system organization instructor and his fellow electronics and communications lab staff to avoid buying any Neo or Acer notebook probably because of poor reviews for their products in general. The Asus model seems to be the only one to match up to them while having more favorable reviews online. These specific models have very favorable reviews online though.

I intend to use my chosen notebook for applications necessary for a computer engineering student and occasional gaming and multimedia. I'm looking for something that might be able to run Diablo 3 and Skyrim in acceptable frame rates when they come out.

I'm very interested in the Neo B5700 because of its 2nd gen Intel Core i7 processor. Problem is, it only has Intel HD 3000 for its graphics. The Acer and Asus models both have 2nd gen Intel Core i5 processors and nVidia GeForce GT540M for graphics. They're the best I can find in my home city that have prices between Php30k and Php35k. I can't afford anything above Php35k. Which would be the best choice? Are any of them upgradeable graphics-wise?

Specs:

Neo B5700
Intel Core i7-2630 2.0GHz Sandy Bridge Processor, DVD-RW Drive, 2GB DDR3 Memory, 14.1" WXGA LED Display, Wi-Fi, 500GB Hard Drive, 100/1000 Lan, Card Reader, Webcam, 2.2Kg with Battery, Free DOS

I would personally get the Acer Aspire AS4750G-2412G64MN. It seems the most balanced of the 3. It has a processor that can handle almost anything you throw at it. The graphics is good as well (more VRAM than the ASUS K43SV, same chipset).
