3rd or forth. The first one has a cpu and a graphisccard in it which will use more power.  The 4th one has a worse gpu which will use less power than the 3rd one but ultimately you have to decide if you want a better gpu or not.

For a laptop I would personally consider the A8 APU's over the Core i5. The i5 is faster processor wise - but the graphics built into the A8 processors are much more superior and handle HD content MUCH better. There's demonstrations online where the A8 can handle a large workload of HD content while the i5 freezes up and stalls. The A8 will be crossfired w/ those dedicated cards making the graphics situation even more superior.
