Exclamation Laptop Buying Assistance

I'm shopping for a new laptop for college. I am in a media based program and will be using it for basic stuff but will also be using software such as cs5 or maybe cs6 and video editing like premier or sony vegas so it needs to be pretty powerful. I have 3 choices here that I need some comparing on because I don't know too much about computers aside from basics.

Toshiba Satellite 15.6" Laptop featuring AMD A10-4600M Processor (S855D-00U) - Silver : 15" Laptops - Best Buy Canada

ASUS 15.6" Laptop featuring Intel Core i7-3610QM Processor (R500A-BB71-CB) - Mocha : 15" Laptops - Best Buy Canada

Samsung Series 3 15.6" 3rd Gen Intel Core i5 3210M Laptop (NP350V5C-S01CA) - Silver : 15" Laptops - Future Shop

On paper it seems the Asus and Samsung are slightly more powerful but I'm not sure. Pricing is not the big issue since theyre all only $30 different. I've heard about issues on the Asus regarding performance, and the samsung due to an apparent loud fan? I need help ASAP as I'd like to purchase one this week. Thanks!
