More about acer aspire 571g 9686 good
  1. I just came across this Lenovo G780 for the same price ($699)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834246492

    Better/same specs all around (and Windows 7 instead of 8) except the video card is a Geforce 630M rather than the 640M. Will this make much of a difference? Seems like a better deal otherwise... this will be my first laptop so i wanna make sure i make a good choice :D
  2. bump, as i'm looking at this laptop too
  3. Bump again.... I've had bad luck with acers in the past, but the laptop is available from TigerDirect as well:

  4. As for the lenovo the processor pass mark score should answer your question.

    For the Acer:
