  • The Dell's processor is clocked faster, but is based on the "old" Core2Duo architecture. The Acer's processor is based on the newer i5 architecture.
  • The latter has an L3 cache, the former doesn't.
  • DDR3 RAM. Never mind that it "only" has 3GB, that's basically all you need for current games.
  • Graphics-wise they're both pretty dire, but laptop graphics cards are expensive so that's where corners are usually cut...
Is 250GB enough? At the moment I have 7 games, 200 photos, 550 songs and a few dozen odd programs sitting alongside Win7 and that takes up less than a hundred GB. Modern games take up maybe around 10GB, so you'll be fine.
