Frankly? This will do your HD. It has the chops and with the Nvidia 310 GPU some games will be playable. shows the really nice i5 CPU (it's great stuff) but the Intel HD graphics means that HD should be fine 98% of the time (I will not discuss MKV or such playback) games may not be an option here.

Tough call but both should fun to own. For me I could use the Acer because of my needs, but each person needs to find the right fit.
