well, all of them would be terrible gamers I'm sorry to say. No. 2 + 3 have bad graphics, and No. 1 isn't great either. They all also use ULV (Ultra low voltage) CPUs, meaning they're dual core, they'll generate less heat and get you better battery life, but when it comes to performance, it will not do too well. Number one has best CPU as well, though- the other two are last generation tech. If those are your options, go for laptop number one.
