Default Help me choose a new Laptop

Which laptop would you choose?

I don't care too much about the hdd, because I will probably add an ssd.

I'm open for other suggestions around $800, maybe more if it's really worth it.

Thank You.

ASUS A53 Series A53SV-XN1 Notebook Intel Core i5 2410M(2.30GHz) 15.6" 6GB Memory DDR3 1333 750GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

MSI FX620DX-256US Notebook Intel Core i5 2410M(2.30GHz) 15.6" 6GB Memory 640GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

MSI FX610-034US Notebook AMD Phenom II Quad-Core P960(1.8GHz) 15.6" 6GB Memory 640GB HDD DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470

The Asus has a larger hard drive than the other Core i5 MSI, and I wouldn't even consider the Phenom II based system (the chip is too old to be useful in the future). Other than that, the first two links are nearly identical, and I have first hand experience with the Asus notebooks as well.

Ok, the Phenom II is out of the picture now :0

I saw the MSI laptop has USB 3.0 ports, ASUS laptop only has USB 2.0, also the MSI webcam is 720P, which I think is great.

I don't look at USB myself, I hardly ever use it, so that's probably why I overlooked it - MSI is your winner then.
