I work with computers a lot and personally I hate Acers. They are absolute crap in terms of reliability and workmanship and I really don't like dealing with them. I'd encourage you to look into a different brand, a little extra money will easily save you a lot of trouble.
That said, the only difference between these two that I can see is the Widescreen feature. Some people like widescreen notebooks, some don't (I can go either way). If you like having widescreen (generally better for movies and games) then the choice is clear. Other than that, I can't really see any difference.

I think Acer is complete garbage, especially the Aspire laptops. They just feel really cheaply made. My sister has one, and has had a lot of problems with it.

You can get a Dell for $399 and I think it has free shipping as well. Look into that, much better than Acer
