I'm sorry, my post was unclear. For the 2nd HP, the link didn't come up right so I had to find it myself, just google HP Pavilion dv6z-7000 to find it. From there, in the customization settings, I have my upgrade options for the processor and graphics card. If I only choose to upgrade 1 at a max of $75, would the Radeon 7730M be my best choice? Better than the Acer I am guessing?
And yes, I am used to 17.3" 1600x900.
