Which laptop – Acer or Asus?

Hi all,

I have been thinking of getting the following laptop:

However, I have also seen these:

http://www.simplyasus.com/ASUS_K55VD…H_1337330.html

http://www.simplyasus.com/ASUS_K55VD…H_1336279.html

I am looking for opinions on which one to get.

Thanks.

  1. Get any of the asus one, they are r better brand.

  2. Easy answer.
    1) the "simply" sites are part of http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/
    where you get all the brands in one web site. They are the same products at the same vendor.
    2) Asus over Acer as a brand.

    Ignore the zombie cult Apple. Tainted surveys for that brand, but valid otherwise.
    You can spend a little more to get a quality Asus for the same specs. Asus is a designer-manufacturer. Acer is a brand name. They also own Packard Bell and Gateway brands. Acer designs nothing and builds nothing. They are HP/Dell/Acer/Gateway/Lenovo G series/cheap Toshibas as one giant generic laptop set. Lenovo non-G, Samsung, Asus, MSI, Sony are all the good stuff.
    3) If the specs are somewhat better, you can buy the generic. (All Acer/HP…)
    The Acer is i5-3210M + GT 630M for £450.
    ASUS K55VD-SX494H is same CPU coupled with crappy GT 610M. That one is out.
    ASUS K55VD-SX696H is i5-3230M GT 610M. Also dismissed.

    Of the 3, take the generic Acer.
    Now, go to the main site:
    http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Products/cat/Laptops/refine/max~530$46567~59712$46565~144435
    All the Asus to £530 are GT 610M when dedicated GPU. The Samsung’s are GT 620M
    Let’s try to stay with the i’5 or i7′s as the premium is not very much.
    7 units:

    Those Lenovo Ideapad Y570 are interesting though GT 555M is about GT 640M for that version and the 64GB SSD is weird. Do you want to carry an external drive? Interesting choice.

    Skip the acer with GT 620M
    6 choices. All good. Lenovo Y570 is the highest quality. The rest are all Acer. Tiny SSD though.
