His Acer: the two Firewire ports and less shared video RAM give it an edge in my opinion.

The better brand? As for desktops, neither. As for laptops, also Acer.

I have the same computer as yours and seeing as it also has 2 firewire ports, ours is better IMO.

No offense, but they are both weak.....his is way better cause its $370 cheaper than yours......wow....They are both low end systems with a nice processor slapped in them to sell them...You could make one 2-3 better for the same price...sorry thats the truth.
