Which laptop is better?

11 replies 2 views Edited Dec 13, 2006
Sorry! I know this is *sort of* a comparison thread, but I'm shopping for a notebook computer and I've got it down to a Apple MacBook for $969 CAD and an Acer Aspire for $979 CAD
 
Apple Macbook:
 
Acer Aspire:
 
I know the Acer has way better specs, but the Apple is good too because it has more L2 cache, built in iSight etc. Which one do you guys suggest?
 
EDIT: I have another one on my list now, tell me what you guys think of this:

I think I would go for the macbook.  Acer is mediocre.

I'll probably go for the Acer, because it has a better graphics card then the Macbook so it can run lots of games without problems......but as you said, the Macbook has more L2 cache and of course Apple products are very good quality. I'll still go with Acer cuz it can run games

Horray, somebody else who knows something about computers! Alot of people are saying that I should go for the Macbook, but the Acer is sooo much better and for only $10 more. I'm pretty sure I'll go for the Acer. Thanks!
