2x choices

HP Pavillion DM1Z
AMD E-350 Fusion APU
4GB RAM
500GB 7.2K RPM HDD
11.6" Screen
~~~Ultraportable lappie

Acer Aspire AS5253-BZ602
AMD E-350 APU
2GB RAM
250GB 5.4K RPM HDD
15.6" Screen
~~more of a full sized lappie

so i've looked around new egg as well, and outfitted a 500GB laptop HDD and 4GB of RAM as well if I decide to go the Acer laptop.

coming out, the Acer is overall cheaper to get even after buying the new HDD and RAM on newegg cause I can always sell off the stock HDD and RAM

however, i'm more worried about battery life and weight;
the HP has on average about 5-6hours with wifi and screen on 70%
i'm sure the acer will suck down more battery due to a larger screen

any opinions?
cheers

Edit:
another option would just be to get the base line model for the HP pavillion lappie (ie 320gb hdd, 2gb ram) and i'll buy an SSD and 2x2GB ram kit for it locally here

thoughts?

Don't forget the ability to play Crysis (even if only "playable" and at all low settings).

To be completely honest I'm not a fan of Acer or HP. I've owned a few HP products (printers, notebooks, etc.) and 2 acer products and sure the price you're paying is cheap and it's great in that sense but the quality just isn't there in my opinion (Except for that laserjet I have from the mid 90's which just doesn't seem to want to die).

I'd rather have a nice Viao or ThinkPad that I pay a bit more for and are solid performers. Keep in mind that I'm also a student and money is really tight but you have to find your own middle ground between cost awareness and service/durability/quality.

PS: If you're not worried about HDD capacity why not pickup an SSD and toss it in there? You can always carry an external HDD or usb stick for filestorage. Keep in mind this is from a "workstation"/"portable office" standpoint (where I'd rather have a computer booting up in 20 seconds over just having massive amounts of storage).

+1
but its just that I don't have a load of money to blow at this point
so I don't mind having an HDD, but I guess thats something to consider

I really wouldn't choose acer/HP, but I need this laptop by the end of Feb/start of march cause GCSE Design Tech coursework recommends that we have our own lappies cause its easier to do everything

and fusion is a nice small gaming platform with battery life IMO
and Acer and HP are the only brands to have fusion Dual core platforms out right now....so yea....:/

acer bigger screen would be better for your course easier to read and can have more stuff on screen. and im sure the battery life would be close to the hp. and the bigger screen is better for gamming

Up until a few months ago I would have said go the HP due to acer having been the bain of my life some years back (story is TLR), but I just got an Acer One Happy Netbook (great for work and war driving and it was dirt cheap).
This little atom powered (dual core N550) net book has given me not an ounce of trouble and it goes like a trooper for 6-7hours radio on and like 8-9 with the radio off.
Great little goer
Go the Acer and if you can get an SSD it will save on power.
