The first three that you linked to use the amd fusion range of cpu's which are not the most powerful But require less power and generate less heat which translates into a better battery life then the pentium or i3 laptops you mentioned they are good for a general multimedia and internet pc use.

The i3 cpu is at the other end of the scale and is also able to play some less demanding games but the battery life would be less and should last for around 3 hours. Looking at the laptop on the ebuyer site it says that it only comes with a 90 day warranty which when you are shelling out £300+ for is a bit of a gamble if it all goes wrong on you.

Have you tried taking your mum down pc world and comet and showing her the laptops? she might pefer one over the other and feel more comfortable using one over the other

The lifebook from dabs looks like the best bang £300 that you can get I'm quite sure that it has a hdmi port which is not mentioned in the dabs ad.

I have used dabs a few times and have not had any problems with there service.
