I've first used an AMD processor three years ago, I really liked it!
Now I'm planning to get a new laptop.
My choice has fallen on an HP Pavillon (actually three of them). Which one to choose?

* Choice 1: HP PAVILION DV5057EA
· Prozessor AMD Turion™ 64 ML-32 512 KB L2 Cache 1,8 GHz
· Arbeitsspeicher 1024 MB DDR-RAM (2x 512 MB)
· Festplatte 100 GB
· DVD±RW DL Brenner
· 15,4″ WXGA-Display
· Grafik ATI Radeon® XPress 200M, 128 MB DDR-RAM shared
· LAN, WLAN 802.11 b/g & Modem

* Choice 2: HP PAVILION ZE2356EA
· Prozessor AMD Turion™ 64 ML-30 1,6 GHz
· Arbeitsspeicher 1024 MB DDR-RAM 333 MHz (2x 512 MB)
· Festplatte 80 GB 4200 U/Min
· DVD±RW DL Brenner
· 15″ XGA TFT-Display
· Grafik ATI Radeon® XPRESS 200M 128 MB shared Memory
· LAN, WLAN 802.11 b/g, 56K Modem
· 6-in-1 Cardreader

* Choice 3: HP PAVILION ZV6246EA
· Prozessor AMD Athlon™ 64 3200+
· Arbeitsspeicher 512 MB DDR-RAM
· Festplatte 100 GB
· 15,4″ WXGA Display
· Grafik ATI Radeon® Xpress 200M (128 MB dediziert)
· DVD+RW/+R Doublelayer-Brenner
· 6-in-1 Cardreader
· WLAN 802.11 b/g
· PC-Card Steckplatz

The three laptops are priced equally.

A couple of questions:
- Which of the ML-32 on L2 512 kb (available on Choice 1) and the ML-30 on L2 1024 kb(available on Choice 2) is better?
- Which one (or ones) of the laptop have the BrightView option? Which one(s) have a TFT screen?
- Can I play games on a reasonable resolution on the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M?
- Will I be facing an overheating problem?
- What about the battery life?
- They all are 64-bits processors. Right?
- Finally, which one of those laptops do you advice me to buy?

One more thing, I wasn't able to find the official laptops manuals, where can I get them from?
