You could not pay me to use an Acer product, ever.
On the other hand, I use Asus products every day.
That Asus laptop is not the best laptop ever and it probably won't handle Guild Wars 2 very well (if at all) but it's much better than anything Acer will produce
From what I've heard on these boards you are right about acer. Running it may not be a huge issue, I should've said I'll be using it mostly for downloading at hotspots(slow net speed). Thanks for the input.
