I am a big fan and have had lots of good luck with Asus laptops. At the same time, you'll need to drop some money into upgrading the ram and HDD if you want more space.

The Lenovo is honestly the best deal in my opinion. The mobile i3 vs i5 isn't a huge difference.

My HP with a first gen i3 @ 2.53 GHz, 8 GB of Ram (Aftermarket added myself), 500GB HDD, and a Radeon HD 5450 Mobility 512MB card does a pretty good job of everything. Obviously it can't play newer games (if you're into gaming), but it is still a great all around laptop.

Someone said that the i5 is a bit better than the i3 is it true? I know that the Lenovo has 8Gb of RAM, but the guy said that 4Gb is a lot...but I'm affraid that if I buy Asus with 4GB RAM it won't be enough in the future, cause it can't be upgraded.

You may want to look for some sites that allow you to configure your LT. I just purchased a LT from CyberPower PC with the following specs I put together in the configurator.

Clevo w740su which they call the "Zeus Hercules Gaming Notebook".
i7-4750HQ CPU
Integrated Intel iris Pro 5200 GFX.
16 gigs memory
120 gig SSD (OS)
1TB 7200 RPM HDD (storage)
14" 1920x1080 IPS screen
802.11 AC wireless (newest version & my routers support it)
Win 8.1 Pro.
Total weight is just over 4.1 lbs I think.
Spent $1,354.00.
This will play some games but I got it mostly for work, & future resale when it comes time to upgrade.
