Thanks for starting this thread smilepak. This debate is scattered all over these forums. Asus z71v vs Acer 8104 - ...and which one is the better value? I have been struggling with that for sometime and I've come to the following conclusions:
1- x700 vs the go6600 - the acer 8104 gets the edge in performance, at least according to the benchmark data I have seen, but how well does this translate into real world performance? I don't know. Any opinions?
2- the acer also has a DVI port and a 5-1 card reader as opposed to a VGA and 4-1 card reader.
3- the asus can be configured with an SATA HD while the acer only comes with a PATA.
4- the asus gets the nod on price. I can configure the same systems for about $2200, but I get a 3yr warranty with the asus as opposed to a one year with the acer.
5- the asus also seems to get the nod on battery life. Does everyone agree with that?http://www.powernotebooks.com/specs/PowerPro/a2-21.php
Does anybody know these guys?
Did I miss anything? I'd be interested in hearing why JFvergara went with the Acer 8100... Were you ever considering the Asus z71v?
thx in advance for the dialog
