I'd go with the HP, for most programs the processor is a bit slower than the i5 but shouldn't be too far behind. The HP has a better graphics card and more ram (even though 4gigs is enough anyway) so yeah I'd say the HP is the pick of the bunch.

I agree with Willus. I've had 2 HP's laptops and they were both great computers.
