Default ACER GEMSTONE or HP HDX

hi,

planning to get a new laptop (even though i dont need it ) and did some research: found these 2 cool machines that match my taste..

the price for HDX is 500 EUR more than the acer one, and lots heavier. But this design is cool.

what do you guys think , which one is better

Acer Gemstone specs and pricing revealed - Engadget

Buy HP Pavilion HDX Entertainment Notebook PC, HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario Notebook PCs and Laptop Computers direct from the HP Home & Home Office Store

I think you should get HP Pavilion HDX. 20.1" WOW! and looks sexier.
