I'd go with the Toshiba... you can always upgrade the ram and hard drive if needed...


Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W

Acer tech support sucks. Toshiba has a better setup in my opinion. Go with the Toshiba!

My freind has got the exact same acer and its pretty good and doesnt look to bad can play enof games to keep u entertained whilst in lessons and dont say that u wont play games. At my school we have cs tournaments over the wireless get bout 20 ppl playing whilst in lessons good fun for when it gets boring. I dont really know about acer tech support as my boarding school has its own free tech centre but Ive had an acer travelmate for 3 years now and every problem ive had was easy to fix by myself and ive really pushed it to the limit.

I will not be playing games on it anyway, nevermind in class. My friend also has an Acer and has found it very good. Can anyone please give me a few more opinions regarding value for money.
Thanks again
