Default New laptop

Hi everyone,

i'm looking for a laptop under 500$ to do very basic video editing with Adobe Premiere. I already got a brand new imac to do more important stuff. The PC will only be for home video editing or bring to clients for previews and such.

here are some choices :

Toshiba Satellite C70D 17.3" Laptop - Black :

ASUS X551CA 15.6" Laptop - Black (sale ends today):

Lenovo IdeaPad 14" Touchscreen Laptop - Silver:

Toshiba Satellite C40D 14" Laptop (AMD A4-5000/ 500GB HDD/ 6GB RAM/
Windows 8) - White:

As said, i'm a Apple user and been that way for years so i don't know much anymore about pc's architectures and parts. What would be my best choice? Any other suggestions?
