Get the Acer one. Acer laptops are miles better value for money than HP. Also AMD processors rock, and if you want to do gaming the Radeon graphics will be better than the Intel one.

Mind you I'd be happy with either, they are both awesome spec machines. Mr. Green

It's 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. They are both very good spec machines, both from fairly respectable companies. I doubt you'd be disappointed with either.

Like Steve says, the Acer one is probably a slightly better specification. However, if you look more closely at the spec, you'll probably find that the HP has a longer battery life and weighs less. The HP one will probably be slightly sturdier build also. It all depends what you want out of a laptop really.

If you visit the Microsoft hotline, you'll literally have to wait weeks if not months until someone calls in with a bug in one of our programs. 99.99% of calls turn out to be user mistakes. I know not a single less irrelevant reason for an update than bugfixes. The reasons for updates are to present more new features."
