What's wrong with Acer and HP?

Perhaps it's a stupid question but will any of the pc's I've listed bottleneck in anyway? Is the i5-2450M for instance too powerful for the GT630M?

Also, if I may ask you a final thing, how does the 4 computers I've listed in your opinions compare to the system requirements of Diablo 3?

Minimum Requirements, Windows
  • Windows® XP/Vista/7 (latest service packs) with DX 9.0c
  • Intel Pentium® D 2.8 GHz or AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 4400+
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800 GT or ATI Radeon™ X1950 Pro or better
  • 1 GB RAM (XP), 1.5 GB (Vista/7)
  • 12 GB available HD space
  • DVD-ROM (required for retail disc versions only)
  • Broadband** Internet connection
  • 1024x768 minimum resolution
Recommended Requirements, Windows

  • Windows® Vista/7 (latest service packs)
  • Intel® Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 5600+ 2.8 GHz
  • 2 GB RAM
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® 260 or ATI Radeon™ HD 4870 or better

any 4 of the initial computers you've listed in your initial post should be able to run D3 with ease, So that shouldn't be a worry at all.
(my opinion mind you)

Unfotunatley, the nice offer with the i5 processor now costs 1056USD which makes it less of an opportunity. I had to wait until I had it confirmed whether or not my old PC would live. In the mean time the offer expired. My luck...

So I'd like to ask what can be expected from the AMD A6-3420M? I've read it'll feature a Turbo Core technology which will boost the frequency to 2,4GHz instead of the regular 1,5GHz but I don't know when this will happen and how effektive it actually is? Will the machine with the A6-3420M suffer from lack of speed when playing games? What to expect really?
