Acer laptop buying advice needed please!

Hi all,

I am looking to buy one of the folloowing two laptops:

1 - Intel i5-3210 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD, DVDRW, Nvidia GT 630M Optimus 1GB GDDR3, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, £600:

2 - Intel i7-2670QM 2.2GHz (have checked with Acer and it is definitely 2670QM even though it says 2630QM on website), 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD, DVDRW, Nvidia GT 540M Optimus 1GB GDDR3, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, £579:

I will be using them mainly for flash games, Counter Strike Source, COD:MW, BBC iPlayer, Office applications, HD movie watching, general use and internet browsing. Does anyone have any recommendations between the two?

Thanks for any help

  1. I would buy something other than Acer, but at my budget limit (£600), no other manufacturer seems to have the specs to match an Acer?

    Have also found the below, ANOTHER acer!, hopefully its a good one:

    3 - Intel i5-2450M 2.53GHz, 8GB RAM, 750GB HDD, DVDRW, NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M Optimus 1GB, WIndows 7 Home Premium x64, £598:

    What do you think between these three? I cant seem to find anything at this price point with better specs, and from what I have read, the Nvidia 540M and 630M cards are pretty much exactly the same in terms of real world performance. So therefore it comes to the processors, does that make the i7 CPU the best CPU of the lot?
