I have an old Advent which is very slow and would like to treat myself to a new and much faster laptop.

The Asus seems to be the faster system having a Dedicated GPU (although a slow one 720M). But then again it is also a bigger notebook 17" vs 15.6" so size would also be something to think about. Otherwise the specs are pretty much the same.

Anything is better than an HP.... They load so much crap on their computers you have to spend a few hours uninstalling stuff as soon as you buy it. They've never seemed to keep that smooth new-computer feel very long either. I have never had a bad experience with an ASUS though. Several bad experiences with HP. Not always about the hardware. Usually it is, but not always.

Many thanks for your comments. Apart from the obvious advantage of having a larger screen to look at, is there a downside to choosing the 17" over the 15.6"? Portability doesn't bother me.

If portability isn't an issue then not really. The only major downside to a larger notebook deals with the size and weight of the notebook itself which would mostly effect portability.

Thanks, I'll go for the Asus. Incidently it is £30 cheaper.
