Lenovo is a better brand, but perhaps more expensive.

The Acer has the better video card and CPU.

The Acer has better specs, but I would wonder about longevity. Pretty much hit or miss with that brand, I have an original Aspire One that still runs fine.

Between those specifically, I would probably just go with Lenovo for their build quality, keyboard, and trackpad.


I myself am considering the Acer Aspire S7 392, the Asus Zenbook Infinity, or the Lenovo T440s

Do you want better specs (Acer), or reliability (Lenovo)?

can someone explain to me why Lenovo is reliable? Everyone says they're one of the best
Also why is Acer usually considered crappy?

Lenovo is favored by businesses looking for rock solid systems. They have a reputation for having reliable systems.

Acer is a low-end brand. It might turn out alright, but personally I wouldn't expect that system to last more than three years or so (which might be fine for you).

Who knows? The reviews are overall good for both. Your call. Personally? I would keep looking. Neither of these options are very enticing.

Scratch that, the Lenovo seems like a decent deal. Maybe I'm a bit out of date though and someone knows better, I'm used to canadian prices.
