Hi everyone! I need to know if a 236.4999 USD Difference Is worth a bigger by 140gb HDD and a bigger by 2gb DDR3 Ram.


Sorry for my unclear question. I will give an example.
I will state two offers for an Acer Aspire 4750G, which differs in price and abit of hardware.

1) At 944.422934 USD,

Intel® CoreTM i7-2630QM processor
(Quad Cores, 2.0GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.90GHz,6MB L3 cache)
14" HD Acer CineCrystalTM LED-backlit TFT LCD

640GB Hard Disk Drive, 4GB DDR3 RAM

Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
Nvidia GeForce GT 540 with Nvidia Optimus Technology
( 1024MB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM )
HDMI Output

2) At 709.4997 USD,


Intel® CoreTM i7-2630QM processor
(Quad Cores, 2.0GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.90GHz,6MB L3 cache)
14" HD Acer CineCrystalTM LED-backlit TFT LCD

500GB Hard Disk Drive, 2GB DDR3 RAM

Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
Nvidia GeForce GT 540 with Nvidia Optimus Technology

3) At 748.91635 USD (Same Specs as No.2 but from a different seller in case No.2 declines)

Intel® CoreTM i7-2630QM processor

500GB Hard Disk Drive, 2GB DDR3 RAM

Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
Nvidia GeForce GT 540 with Nvidia Optimus Technology

I just want to know, based on the sizes of the HDD and the amount of RAM in each offer, is it still more worth it to get the Offers for No.2(From adifferent seller from No. 3 in case he declines last minute) and No.3 and upgrade them individually or to get No. 1(From a shop) as the best offer still? Thanks

Assuming everything else is equal, which I doubt, the cheaper one is definitely the better deal.
The extra hard drive space and extra RAM are only worth about $50USD more.
I would get the cheaper one and buy some more RAM to add to it.
