Asus vs Lenovo vs Toshiba

I've been browsing through the almighty Internets and found three laptop models that tickle my fancy in a way or another, given the budget and this country's offerts.
Anyway, I've stopped at these three laptops, and I'm seeking advice about which one to purchase.
1) Lenovo Y560-3 [Intel CoreTM i5-430M, 4GB, 320GB, ATI Mobility HD5730 1GB,]
2) Asus N61JV-JX052V [Intel CoreTM i5-430M 2.26GHz, 4GB, 500GB, nVidia GeForce GT325M 1GB]
3) Toshiba Satellite L650-116 [Intel CoreTM i5-430M 2.26GHz, 4GB, 500GB, ATI Radeon HD5650 1GB]
The Lenovo is clearly the winner if we judge by hardware specifications, but I'm concerned about how well will they perform in time [I plan on keeping it at least 3-4 years]. Also, I'm a Linux beginner user and it seems that nVidia drivers are easier to get. [never had an ATI card before hence I have no idea what I'm talking about -_-'].
On a side note, I plan on using them for multimedia purposes, programming and some gaming [hello, Starcraft2!].
Anyway, I'm looking forward to your advice, stranger!
