the acer looks pretty good but they're pretty tightly matched. id pick the viewsonic.

I'm using Acer's laptop, its Good. but in Monitors I'll always prefer Viewsonic Over Acer.

Widescreen is soo much better than the 5:4. I don't really like ACER due to their laptop's quality but I would go for that one.
