If money isn't an issue, I would definitely go with option 3! No doubt about it in my opinion. You get a better graphics card with 1gb of GDDR5, as opposed to only 256mb of GDDR5. You also get a faster processor.

Don't get stuck on option 2 simply because it has an ssd. You can put an ssd into the 3rd one and come up way ahead of all the others in the future...whenever you need it.

If money is tight, I would go with option 1.
