they have exactly the same processors, equal amount of RAM, HP has a bigger hard drive - but HP's break down a lot... Acer is a solid laptop and out of the two I would go with the Acer. You should check out ASUS, a lot of them come with a 1 year accidental warranty! Like if you can spend a little bit more check out this one: ASUS U31JG-XA1 It's priced at 699 right now

forgot to mention that ASUS doesn't have a CD/DVD drive... I personally don't need one, but if it's something that you need ASUS probably won't work for you

Thanks for your feedback.I do need a cd drive.I have a Acer netbook I'm using till I replaced my dead HP.I am leaning towards the Acer as it has so much added to it (except the backlite keyboard). I have seen lots of posting about the Asus,I'll do more checking.I was hoping to stay under $800 if possible.

Debbie, another good option is the Lenovo's with the new Sandy Bridge processors, they start at 699 as well as Asus, but do come with a CD drive. It's actually kind of patterned after Apple's Mac Book pro's

Here are a couple of links, first one with the commercial for the laptop and second one the order page. not sure if maybe Amazon will resell them here.¤t-category-id=882E5BEF01940B69A2DA45E4D3405DDB

If those have integrated/Intel video, they aren't going to run games.

Personally I'd get the HP over an Acer, but I wouldn't get either of those models.

Thanks so much for the links.I have been doing lots of reading on the Lenevo thinkpad and just starting reading about the ideapad.I like what I'm reading,just wish I could find one in town to see and try it out.I am also looking at the Toshiba satellite (205 ? i5 second gen),14 in )

What do you think of Toshiba vs the Lenovo ???

No, they absolutely are NOT getting out of the PC business. We've known that for MONTHS now that that's not the case.
