I'll be working from home some now and I'll need a new laptop as the one I have now is on its last leg. I'll be remoting into my work pc and using ArcMap and Office products mostly but I don't know if that matters on the laptop or the internet connection more. Right now I can do pretty good as long as I'm not working on anything too complicated.

Anyway, I'd like to be able to play some of the newer games maybe or even my old Sims2 but I don't have to. I know that if I really want to do that I'd be better off getting a desktop and that just isn't an option right now. I need to be able to move from room to room depending on where Gabby wants to play. I've done some research and of course all that did was confuse me more. I have in mind that I'd like to spend less than $400 but I don't think that's going to be possible for what I want. Where I get confused is in the processor. I know I want Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, 4 gigs or RAM, 300 gig HD at 7200 RPM, 15 in. screen, or more on all of those.

Okay, so I found these on sale. Which would be the best one to get or do you know of a better one? I can buy on line or in store but I'd like to get it within a week if possible.

HP at Office Depot

HP at Office Max

HP at Fry's the specs

MSI at Fry's the specs

I'm not picky on brand as long as it will last.
