Default Basic PC, 3 Choices, Help Me Choose...

I am looking for a basic PC, which will be used for standard e-mail, word processing, internet browsing etc, nothing too intensive.

I have narrowed it down to 3, all priced the same. Any differences in them other, than the ones listed below I consider superficial (eg card reader etc). They are all running Windows 7 Home Premuim.

ADVENT SE2102 http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/advent...33934-pdt.html

Intel® Pentium® Processor E5400 - 2.7 GHz - 800 MHz FSB - 2 MB L2 Cache
Memory - 3GB installed DDR2 RAM- 4GB maximum RAM capacity
Graphics - Nvidia® Geforce 9200 - 256 Mb (onboard)


DELL Inspiron 560 http://configure.euro.dell.com/dells...c=inspiron-560

Intel® Pentium® Dual Core E5500(2.80GHz,800MHz,2MB)
MEMORY - 2048MB Dual Channel DDR3 [2x1024] Memory
GRAPHICS - Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 Graphics


DELL Inspiron 570 http://configure.euro.dell.com/dells...c=inspiron-570

AMD Athlon™ II X2 240 (2.8GHz, 2MB Cache)
MEMORY - 2048MB Dual Channel DDR3 [2x1024] Memory
GRAPHICS CARD - Integrated ATI Radeon HD4200 Graphics


Which of these 3 is best best?
If you could say which was the better component for each and overall that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Well... the Inspiron 560 and 570 are about the same except that the 570 has better onboard video(Graphics).The 560 and 570 also have DDR3 which is better then DDR2, even though the ADVENT SE2102 has 3gigs its still DDR2.
