Hi, very new here. Just need a new laptop and like both of the 2 in the title: Acer Aspire AS7750G vs HP Pavilion dv7-6c90us

I do video/photo editing, so i7 it is. Just don't know which one. Both have 17'' screen that I like, both at sub $1,500, and both has discrete graphics cards.

Acer-
Pros-Better Graphics Card, cheaper, dual 500GB hard drives (the possibilities!) 4 DIMMS of memory with 8GB already
Cons: no blu ray, no fingerprint scanner, 1 USB 3.0

HP-
Pros: Beats Audio, Blu Ray,
Cons: expensive, doesnt have the 2x500GB hard drives, lesser graphics card

So which one is better for my application and why?

Thanks!

Not the slighest idea what your application will be.
And you didn't provide specific details or web link for the Acer.

HP Pavilion dv7-6c90us prices out to $949. Where did you get the $1500 figure?

OK I'm leaning towards the HP.
Recently I have heard reports of i7 laptops getting really hot. Is that true?

Also in response to WR2, I mostly use Lightroom, Photoshop, and Vegas Pro (plan to switch to Adobe)

dont know if its just i7s in particular, however, im currently on a 17 in HP that is 7 years old, and at the one year mark, i had to have the monitor replaced because of over heating. the heat from the cpu cracked the monitor frame. hp was aware of the problem, and fix my for free, even out of warranty.

no problems since.

im also shopping for a new laptop, and it is a must for me to have a 17 in +, and have two hard drive bays. my current dv9040us has a 64gb SSD in bay 1 and a 1gb WD in bay 2

some of the dell 17 inchers also have dual hdds

i own a 14in acer also, and i have never had problems with acer products
