I would like to choose between two <$500 models of 14" Acer Aspire notebooks. One has the AMD CPU and one has the Intel. I can save about $70 if I pick the AMD model. Acer's Tech Support is saying that the Intel model comes with a free Win 7 upgrade option. Both machines have 34-bit Vista Home Premium OS.
The applications will not involve heavy duty graphics. Is one CPU significantly better than the other?
Most usage will be with the power supply.
