Laptop for college, $700 budget

Hey guys I'm in the market for a new laptop, these are the ones I'm between:

Ide prefer it be under 5 lbs. and preferably have a ssd(not absolutely necessary). Do these three seem to be around the best for the price or can I find something better.

What do you want it for gaming or for school stuff? You can get a perfectly good for school laptop for 250 bucks. I just bought one with a 2.4 ghz processor for the that price.

Just school stuff for the most part one that can manage multitasking, quick boot time and like I said preferably a ssd. Its for a friend who is insistent on spending ~ 600 - 700
