I am getting ready to go off to college and am looking for a laptop. I have 3 in my sights right now that i am trying to decide between. They each have features that I am looking for, but i am no pro in this field. I mostly need some attention-to-detail advice, as i have never owned a laptop and don't know things to look for on them. However, each one has the processor i am looking for along with enough space and a decent enough graphics card. Any educated advice you can give will be well appreciated. Thanks ahead of time.

Here is the link:

It compares all 3 computers and their respective specs. So far, i have my eye on the MSI, but the ASUS and Gateway both come close at second...Thanks again for any help you can offer.

EDIT: I should also mention that I am going to school for graphic design and i plan on using it for multi media-type projects also. I'm not a computer gamer, so I don't need to be able to run Crysis at max res and ultra high detail settings, but i do want plenty of room for exploring my computer possibilities.
