I am selling my Sony NW laptop I got on Black Friday and I am wondering which of these 2 laptops should I get? I know the Acer has a better processor and a better discrete graphics card, but I heard Acer isn't as reliable as a Lenovo in terms of build quality.

Acer Aspire AS5740G-6979
Intel Core i5 430M(2.26GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650


Lenovo IdeaPad Y550p(324158U)
Intel Core i3 330M(2.13GHz) 15.6" Wide XGA 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M

If you know any other better deals for $799 or less then that would be helpful too. I am on a budget and I can't go above $799. Thanks in advance.

Lenovo does tend to have better quality than Acer (at least I think so), but it is hard to deny that the Acer is one solid machine for only $800. Read Anandtech's review of the 5740G and see what you think:

Thanks for input. I brought the Acer laptop and I love it. There were only a few annoying problems, but I solved them through a few hours of researching.
