Asus K42ja vs Acer Aspire 4745g

Which one is better? here are the specs...

Asus K42ja
Intel Core i5 460M
2GB DDR3 Memory
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730M 2GB DDR3

Acer Aspire 4745g
Intel Core i5460M
2GB DDR3 Memory
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1GB DDR3

Comparison and personal opinion...

Both have at very similar price.

For gaming, HD5730 is a BIT better than HD5650.

As for HDD, I really don't need much large disk on my laptop. I only use visual studio, adobe, office and lotro at the moment. I still have my PC for my main workstation, storage and for heavy gpu games. HDD is getting cheaper by a month and it can be replaced in the future, CPU/GPU is not. I guess it's a matter of personal preference.

Better looks and finish! and I know for some time that ASUS makes exceptional laptops.

Now the best thing why I bought my k42ja is that they offered me a very good deal with free 2gb upgrade.

I hope I made the right choice for buying this laptop as a Christmas gift for myself hehehe.

    Hey! I brought a k42ja too. I'm using it to post this comment right now. The keyboard is top-notch.

    Wait... what?? I didn't get that at the shop I went to. Noooooo! T_T

  2. Yep, matagal ko na nakausap yun shop manager about the good price then tinago ko yun pricelist for the proof.

    Out of curiosity I tried calling other branch and they can't offer me what I'm asking -- trade free 320gb ext to +2gb at same price.

    Returned to the shop and got the same deal... she keep her words. (I'm afraid baka saakin lang hehehe)

  5. I've been hearing a lot of nvidia powered laptops failures. You should read more about it.

    ATI sucks? check Google before commenting. mas mataas ang failure ng GPU ng NVIDIA powered laptops kesa ATI :)
