Based on specs alone I'd go for the first one but these are 2 different machines really. That Phenom is clocked low at 2.2 and I would think is not as fast as that gen Intel. The HP has a better resolution screen as well but it also doesn't seem to have dedicated graphics and the Acer does. So the Acer would win on gaming, unless you just want to play older stuff. However, that acer says only 2.6 hours battery life...less than you might want. For compare to the HP, I'd look at one of the Timelines.

or for better graphics/screen resolution you'd have to go up to this one:
