    From my experience I would choose Asus over Acer any day especially if we are talking about laptops.

    I steer all of my clients away from Acer but that's just me. This is really more of one of those personal preference questions. When you buy a product you generally get what you pay for in fairness of price range and to similarity in all products.

    The acer is a baby blue with black apparently has up to 7hrs battery life, swinging towards the Acer.

    All being equal I would get the one I liked the look of as it would make me happy to see it.. I wanted a Surface Pro 3 (prettier) but got a z-book as I needed the smart card reader and I'm slightly resentful as the thing is so ugly. Honestly, look - AnandTech | HP ZBook 14 Review: Mobile Workstation Meets Ultrabook

    I've bought a few Acer and never had a problem. I don't recall ever having an Asus. Everyone has their favorite companies but laptops have become fairly fungible. Now, I look and specs and price. Most have gotten fairly decent about removing bloatware and laptops not only come with less but what there is, is easily removable.

    If you look at my specs you'll probably guess my answer.

    My only real gripe with Acer is that they have only like a 6 month warranty on the batteries. I have never heard of them having a 7 hour battery either. That probably is at very minimal usage.(display light all the way down etc )

    I would just be weary of stuff like that. From what it sounds like also the laptops probably don't have pci hardware such as optical drives.

    The other thing that turned me away from Acer is that I have owned four Acer laptops in the past and every single one of them had a fan on the far right. EVERY ONE. After about a year/year and a half your normal computer person won't know to clean the fan out occasionally. Have they gotten better? I couldn't say no idea.

    How is Asus fans? Some of theirs is similar to Acer but some of them I have seen to be in the middle or have a higher slope to allow flow.
