My System Specs

Red face ASUS Vs ACER Vs Whatever?

Hi Guys,

Right now I am contemplating between a few selection of laptops. On top of my list right now, I have ASUS K43SV and Acer 4750G.
Here are the specs for comparison:
I5-2410M, Nvidia 540GT, 4GB RAM, 14", 640GB Hard disk.
ACER 4750G
I5-2410M, Nvidia 540GT, 4GB RAM, 14", 640GB Hard disk.

What I like from the ASUS: metal finish, seemingly durable construction, 2 years international warranty.
What I like from the ACER: value/price, thin enough, got 64Bit windows instead 32Bit, more service centre where I'm from.

Another contender is the ACER timeline series 3820TG.
I5-480M, Win7 64, ATI 5650, 4GB RAM, 13.3", 750GB HD.
What I like from the timeline series: thin, light, sleek look

My criteria is simple I am looking for a portable enough laptop while still packing a punch in the graphics aspect. The price range of these laptops are sub $1000.
If you are given the above choices, which one would you choose?

One thing you'll like about the Timeline series is the "theroretical" 8 hour battery life. Acer and Asus both have good warrantys and acer has a standard 1 year warranty which you can upgrade to a full 3 year Total Protection warranty that will cover 1 major disaster for 3 years.

I'll put my vote towards the Acer Timeline, simply because the mobility factor is better.

What do you need the GPU power for?
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

my vote for ACER 4750G
reasons - value/price,,more service @your area...,,64bit os ,thin shaped..
SB laptops are better in performance & has lower power consumption than the older chips...so choose i5 2410m cpu
& one more thing..dont forget to upgrade warranty.
