Thank you very much for your answer.

I am currently having the older model of Dell Inspiron and I am happy with it but I agree that the screen is not that great as the Asus one.

I would prefer to get something from local store that's why I have placed the links from local store.

The shipping is free as I saw at you store. But what shipping method you are offering?

For a few years I've been getting new laptops at Amazon, Newegg and well, no where else.

Asus of the four

Of the machines you mention, I'd go with the Asus, I have one (not that model) and the build quality is very good and a very nice screen.

For a graphics designer, I'd have a couple of reservations. On the model you name, the screen is HD and not Full HD - you might want the higher standard for your work. The HDD is a slow one 5400 rpm. I'd replace it with a SSD, the difference is amazing. Or at least a WD Black 7200 rpm if you need the capacity on your internal disk.

I assume you'll be using a separate mouse - the glidepad on mine is terrible!

And dump most of the Asus enhanced experience junk - it slows the machine to a crawl.
