MSI. A bit older, but overall better.

The HQ cpus are better than the U ones, it got a better GPU, and to top it off, better price.

You'd probably want to get extra storage, but that'd still cost you less than the price difference.

Edit: you got the CPU wrong for the MSI in your post. It's i5 7300HQ, not i5 6300HQ.

And I'd suppose I looked only at the specs, so I can't talk about build quality and the like.
I used to have a good signature, then I got modded for it.
Now I shall try to think of something edgier to put here.

Does that mean the MSI is not older?

The MSI is a bit cheaper (assuming the 128SSD + 1TB HDD option), has a better GPU, and probably has slightly better build quality than the Acer. That would be my pick.

Yeah. The older bit was about the CPU being from the sixth generation instead of the seventh.

Also, It seems like you'd want to buy the SSD only version of the MSI, and buy a separate HDD to throw it in the laptop. 100 GBP for a 1TB HDD is a ripoff by all means.

Really helpful to know thanks for your help.
