Asus R503URH21 vs. Gateway NE56R47u

I've narrowed my below $300 laptop search to these two laptops:

AND

ASUS advantage:

1920x1080 Display vs. The 1366x768 display on the Gateway.

However:

Gateway has a 750gb harddrive vs the Asus 500gb harddrive.

Which laptop is the overall better on to get?

  1. On the Asus, everywhere else that sells it has the display as the same as the Gateway, I would not expect a 1080 screen at this price point. The pentium is a better processor(gateway), the Asus has better graphics(AMD's). thought at this price/performance point, you barely notice either.

    I'd prefer the Asus name over Gateway.

  2. So you're saying that they may have mis-labelled it and/or are false-advertising for the 1080p screen?
  3. And since this is mostly for college work and home entertainment, I think getting the Gateway will be the better choice because harddrive. Also, the graphics on the AMD aren't that much better right?
  4. Probably mislabeled, some copy writer saw 'HD' & wrote down 1080.
