Tough one, probably the A8 one since APU is awesome.

Better GPU.

I'd look at CanadaComputers..

Same GPU and memory, so based on the hard drive configuration and CPU I'd say the Acer would be better. They're pretty close though.

The Acer one is better. The GPUs are the same. The AMD CPU performs like a lower-end i3 I believe.

ive owned both just recently and the A8 gateway is allot better heres what i had to compare with

http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...4eafb368f6en02

mind u the gpu is a bit weaker, but i also saw some benchmarks and the A8 is a whole lot better than that N970 Quad x4 phenom....

I actually returned it just a week ago to buy the new A8 and loving it ever since...
