  1. Best answer
    You get what you pay for with laptops, but since you are confined to buying from Argos....the Lenovo has a Core i3 Processor which is miles better than the Pentium and Celeron processors found in the other two choices. So I would personally go for the stronger processor option. Plus it has 8GB RAM as opposed to 4GB in the others, and you get the laptop bag and mouse too...looking like not to bad a deal there. You will find that the other two laptops will struggle as soon as you are running additional programs ie. antivirus in the background etc. due to the weaker processor and less ram. (although 4GB is sufficient)

    Here is a quick comparison of the two stronger option processors. CPU Boss comparison WIth the i3 winning by a large margin.

    Lenovo are not a bad brand either, they seem to have decent aftermarket support in my experience.
  2. Out of the 3, the i3 laptop is the best. Is there a reason why only Argos is the only option?
