Which Laptop is the better buy?

Hey everyone, I am getting ready to go back to school, but cannot decide between these two laptops.
As far as brand names go, these laptops are fairly similar except the Asus is running NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 425M with 1GB DDR3 VRAM
and the Acer is running a ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5850 with 1GB of DDR3 VRAM plus an additional 2GB's of Memory, Both are priced at 1299.99
I am not sure which will be the best buy for my money, any help is much appreciated.

More about which laptop
  1. 5850M is much better than GT 425M in terms of gaming
  2. So in general am I better off taking the Acer with the 2BG's of additional memory, and the TB Hard drive? I will be just playing SC2 and dont need ultra high graphics. Or is there any thing redeeming about Asus that should hinder my decision?
  3. Yes,they both cost the same.But you get more RAM,much more powerful VGA and more HDD with the Acer one.
  4. Thank you very much maziar
  5. No prob :)
