More about trying decide computers light gaming everyday
  1. They're pretty similar in specs. Honestly it comes down to the OS and the display

    The first has Windows 7 and a larger display
    The second has Windows 8 and a smaller display (but higher resolution). Also it's a touchscreen. If you're interested in those features then the second one would be better, if you want to stick with Windows 7 and you don't care about touch, get the first one.

    The Y580 has much more powerful specifications for the same price.

    Quad core Ivy bridge, GTX660m you can play games on near-max details with 50+fps.

    Wow, those are really great deals
    I'd personally get the 20994PU model, it's $950 but that 1080p display is definitely worth the extra money imo if you can afford it
  3. Thank for the replys, 950 is a bit out of my price range, 850 is pushing it so thats why i was looking at these two
  4. and 850 is after taxes lol
