The Acer is $599 and the Toshiba is $630. I know the acer has more memory and an i5, but Bestbuy doesn't know if they will be getting anymore of this item in stock. They said they could order it but they wouldn't know if they are actually able to receive anymore until it doesnt show up (.....ikr). Anyways if I wait to see if the Acer comes in then the Toshiba might be gone.
My wife will mainly be using this device for Facebook games. She likes to have several tab open at once of different games...will she notice a difference betweent he 2 systems? If she wont, then when would she notice a difference? What would she need to be doing to really tell a difference?
Neither of these will play any games more than internet flash type games as they have no GPU. You could probably stress them doing some video encoding if you wanted to. Honestly for everyday tasks, either of these will do everything you need it to.
