I have narrowed my choices down to these 2 laptops. Which is better for gaming programing etc. Just from the specs. Here is the comparison of the laptops on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...

Thanks for your help.

Acer has a slightly faster gaphics card, the Lenovo a slightly faster CPU. I'd stick with Lenovo though, I've heard bad reports about Acer laptops. The Y510p is an excellent machine.

I hear that the 750 SLI is better than the 760.
How much better is having a 128GB ssd from just having an 8gb cache?

Oh, ha. Didn't notice it was the SLI model, which would explain the price. That's almost definitely going to be better than a single 760m. Get the Lenovo for sure.

So the 128gb ssd isnt really worth it? The 8gb cache is sufficient.? In all other respects the lenovo is better. Last question, I promise.

If you're all about gaming, you want the Lenovo. The 128GB SSD is nice, but it only means faster loading/booting, it won't affect your gaming experience.

I have a Lenovo y510p and the wireless is crap! If I had to do it again, I would buy any other laptop. Stay away from this laptop. Or better make me an offer for this piece of junk!

Sorry to hear that, but just because you're having an issue, doesn't mean they're all bad, or that others shouldn't buy it. Lenovo laptops are good machines, I've had personal experience too.

From what I've read, the wireless issue with Y510p is often a driver issue with the intel wireless driver adapter, which is a simple fix. Could be other things to, check this thread for some options: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1792212/lenovo-y...
