Easily, the best would be the 3rd option. Much more powerful and well balanced.

Then the first option would be the second best?

Which is the deciding factor here? The Processor type, the processor clock, or the gpu?

The deciding factor is the (by order):

#1 GPU > NVIDIA Geforce GTX 950M
#2 CPU > Intel Core i7 - 4720 HQ (Quad-core), Intel Core i7-5500U (Dual-core), Intel Core i5 4210H (Dual-core)

So the Quad-core cpu coupled with the GTX 950m is the one you ought to be aiming for

So now that I have them all lined up in a row, how do I gauge the price? Is the first option actually worth $200 more? How much faster is it really?

The third option is the best as the cpu and gpu are way better than the other 2.

I'm a bit late, but yes, I too would go for the third option for sure (everything is better, also 16GB of RAM on a Windows is an abomination, you won't be using even half of it). Could I ask which laptop corresponds to the third option? I'm too looking for a new one, and it seems too have everything I am looking for.
Thanks!
