The HP is a little more expensive, but has a larger hard drive and better graphics.

I'd say go for the HP as well. As Trotter said, it has a larger hard drive, which is always a bonus.

Erkster stop advertising Acer in ever post. They did not ask about Acer. They asked between 2 they posted. Either give them advice on those 2 or dont post.
