Default Looking for laptop

I want to get a laptop for work, but I wonder, what should I get between these three?

Intel Centrino 1.3GHZ
512MB RAM
60GB HDD
ATI Graphics (64MB Max)

AMD Athlon XP-M 1800+
512MB RAM
60GB HDD
ATI Graphics (64MB Max)

Intel Pentium M 1.5 GHZ
512MB RAM
60GB HDD
ATI Graphics (64MB Max)

The budget targeted for the laptop purchase is $1200 ($1000 recommended)

What are you looking for? Power efficiency? And what do you plan on doing?

Everyone says that AMD is better, but i personally have never really had any PROBLEMS with intel, maybe if it's just for work you will be ok, but if possible you might want to get some sort of Nvida graphics card, they are better and people DO have problems with ATI

its not about if you have probs or not crazy. AMDs just use their resources better. No middleman for info goin to ram. They do more with less. and they are 64bits intel is stuck at 32
