    Re: which one is correct and more natural among the three sentences

    I am going to buy this one. -- A much more natural choice.

    This one is the one [that] I am going to buy. -- Grammatically okay.
    This one, I am going to buy. -- You will find people use this regionally.

    They do all convey the same meaning.

    The second one is not grammatical as a stand-alone sentence.
