Question !!! Help needed !!!

Hi all.

I have not bought a computer in 5 years and so feel quite unprepared to buy one at the moment. I have no interest in games as I've got a 360 but might want to do some simple cubase stuff in the future. Mostly, I will be using it to surf the web whilst running 1 or 2 programs in the background(Word and some music on media player etc).

I only need a base unit and don't really want to build the machine myself as it would probably go hideously wrong :0)

I do not mind a refurbished comp as long as it has a decent warranty with it.

I can spend aruond 250 - 270 and have boiled it down to three so far:




Which do you guys think is the best of these 3 systems?

Even better, does anyone have a base unit that they knw of that would trump those three?

I'd appreciate all of your comments as you are each way ahead of me in terms of knowledge and experiance compared to myself. You'll help me to avoid any stupid mistakes.

Thanks for your help in advance,
