Toshiba is the best one out of all the choices but you should look around

Best buy is really high in price and when it comes to customer service and help it is kinda a burdon

If you plan on ordering it look on newegg , frys,com ,tiger direct they will be easy on the pocket and shipping might be free

Would it make a difference that the HP only has 4GB of RAM and 750GB HDD? Would it affect speed? Because I want a really fast laptop.

There is no really fast laptop and if you think about gaming, forget laptops. The problem are the cramped quarters of a laptop. For performance you need a lot of electric power and that produces heat that a laptop cannot handle.

If you really want a fast system, get a desktop with a Revo drive or another SSD and an i7 Sandy Bridge CPU and a muscular graphics card.

And btw: you want us to tell you which one is the "best" out of your selection - I do not think that a responsible member will give you this answer because there are too many variables. You have to pick your own. We can only give you some criteria and a bit of our own experience.

Toshiba has a good history when it comes to service and stability also customer service isn't bad

Also Toshiba was one of the first main manufactures to create desirable laptops that or NEC
