That sony is the cheapest and although it's only a dual core, that's all you'll need for the activities you plan on doing. Plus it's go ta way better IGP than the others, you'll even be able to do a little gaming on some older stuff. Source games and such.

I'd go with the Acer as it has a triple core, 4gb of ram and a decent gpu. It would be good for what you say it'll be used for and the build quality will be pretty good as it is an Acer.
