  1. Best answer
    I'd go with the Dell. They last, decent warranty, decent cpu, and a decent onboard graphics card.
  2. Thanks........is the multi touch screen on the Acer any good ???
  3. O yeah, I forgot about that. I wouldn't expect it to be too zippy like a "pure tablet." Then again, Acer's maybe a bit better than the HP tx1000 I had awhile back, as it wasn't too responsive, especially using my fingers (it was a bit better with the stylus). Maybe somebody can chime in who has one to give you a bit more info on it. I definitely wouldn't fault you for going with the Acer thought, as the touch screens can be an amusing toy to play with. Plus, it essentially has the same internals as the others. I'm not sure on their reliability though.
  4. The things that attract me the most are the NVDIA GT130 M on the Lenovo and the 1080p screen on the Dell so I'll probably end up choosing between the two....How much of a difference would a GT130M make over a HD 4560 ? And yes,I heard acers have overheating issues.....
  5. Check out this link, as it should give you a good idea of what kind of performance to expect from either the mobile gt130m or the hd 4560.

  6. Ok I narrowed it down to the dell studio 15 and the hp dv - 6. I need help choosing between the 2. HP has an ATI 4650 graphics card with 1 GB GDDR3 memory and a 320 GB 7200 rpm hard drive while the dell has a 512mb ATI HD 4570 card and a 500 GB hard drive, albeit at a slower speed of 5400 rpm.
    Also the HP has a dual core turion which the local vendors tried hard to convince was better than a Intel T6600. The dell has a 1080p screen versus the 720p one on hp.
    Which one should i buy ?
