Hello ThisGuyKnows

Keeping your budget and requirements in mind, I would like to suggest that Lenovo G70-70 should be your first preference as it meets all the requirements, is in your budget, and has higher specifications as compared to Aspire Es1-711 Pen, The 17.3" Genesis V, and The 17.3" Cosmos III LE.

Good Luck!!
