I have been searching for a few weeks now and have got it down to two choices. They are both 599 and i just ran into a few difficulties. first i should tell you what laptops i am speaking of: the Gateway NV5905H and the Acer Aspire AS5741-5193. Here are some links respectively: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/gateway-gateway-15-6-intel-core-i3-330m-2-13ghz-laptop-nv5905h-black-nv5905h/10137510.aspx?path=9b593f712e48a2cd2a5ebe664b2024caen02

AND http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/acer-acer-aspire-15-6-laptop-featuring-intel-core-i3-350m-as5741-5193-black-as5741-5193/10146231.aspx?path=4ecc85ea79964772e2a19ea80058dca6en02

Acer has a slightly better processor and processor speed and also has an LED backlight, but i do not know if it has DDR3 ram like the Gateway does. And that is the end of my limited computer knowledge.
Also if anyone knows the reliability/efficiency of the brands, it would be quite helpful. I am only going to be using this for school and home mostly as i will be starting university soon. THANK YOU!

I didn't look at either, but I can tell you that if I were to buy a computer, I wouldn't touch Acer with a 10 foot pole. That's my personal opinion. I've seen nothing but junk from them.

I've never been impressed with Acer's quality. Maybe it was the models that were rolling in the shop, but they just felt cheap. I wouldn't look to purchase either if it was really my choice...but, it's not me so...
