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/produ...664b2024caen02
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!
