Acer Aspire AS7551G & AS7551 difference

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking about getting a laptop for my wife and am looking hard at these two here in the links. I'm wondering what the difference is between the two? It looks to me that the only difference is the graphics card. They are the same price but which do you think would be the better one to get and is there any other difference?

Here's the specs of each laptop on the Acer website:

Walmart (AS7551-7422): http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/LX.PXE02.209
Newegg (AS7551G-7606): http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/LX.RCE02.072

The model on Newegg comes with 6470M discrete graphics, and 4 USB ports; while the model on Walmart comes with 4250 integrated graphics, and 3 USB ports. There might be other differences between the two but those are the ones I noticed. I'd get the Newegg model as it's the same price and has better graphics.

You might wanna look into a Llano based laptop; better graphics performance, slower CPU performance, and it'll run cooler, quieter, and have better battery life.
