They are both right within my price range but i want a 15.6" or small er but i also want The non le version. is it really that noticeable switching to 768p when gaming on a 17"? thats my main concern. Any advice would be great :)

i would go with the larger Acer Aspire V3 model. It has a much faster cpu, better graphics, and a higher resolution display that will certainly be noticable. And it's cheaper. You have to weigh whether the size is a big enough problem to make the smaller one worth the worse performance/resolution.
Also the V3 has a quad core processor while the timeline is a dual core so really the V3 wins by far except for in size.

The ultra book really sucks for gaming. the gt640m isn't that great of a card to begin with.

For gaming? You'd be fine with an i5, as 95% of games don't use more than 2 cores.

Get this when it comes out in a week, if you don't want a 17" laptop to lug around, but still want power equal to a 640m:

The 7730m and the 640m are about as good as you can get for the price you're talking about. You could also do the A10/7670m hybrid thing....but there's a catch to that: it can be as fast as the 650m but some games don't support CrossfireX so your performance would just be pure crap on those titles:
