Maybe the S56..
The 620M and 610M although sound decent being "nvidia", they're just integrated chipsets. Not too fancy. Good enough for anything 3 years old, or basic.
Not sure on the batteries.
I like ASUS, my current machine, no issues, gets abused. Heard good things about Samsung, so brands no big deal, I'd say.
I would argue integrated Intel GPU's with a i5-i7 outperform the value ended discrete GPU's by nvidia/ATI. They all look like good laptops for the price. I urge you to get a 3 year IPR from MemX... i've seen too many laptops mysteriously die after 1 year of basic regular use.
