I think the cheap one should have been cheaper and the big one should have been more expensive(not that that would be good in any way for me, but its worthy for a higher price).

yea. def cheaper on the first one. Being as I bought a better laptop than that for about 600 at Christmas time. I have to root for Toshiba on laptops now, they simply have the best price to performance ratios...

That is a better laptop spec-wise, but its also a 15-inch offering with a pretty low-rez screen. The HP alternative is the same size as the Acer (13.3) with better specs.

I've been tempted to get a new laptop for quite some time now, and the 8930 was one I was considering, despite it's bulk. Should the new 8935 pack in more power at a similar price, I think I might have finally found my new laptop. However, the one thing I don't like is having no option for a 64-bit OS. There's no sense packing in 4GB of RAM with a 1GB video card. The system would only see < 3GB as usable.

It probably is a 64-bit Vista version, my wife has the Acer 6930 with 4gb of ram and it came with Home Premium 64-Bit edition, an Intel t6400 (I'm pretty sure that's the chip, either way it's 2.0ghz / core) and a 9600 GT 512 vga. It's a pretty slick pc, bulky, but fast. She can nearly max out most current games and still run 30+ fps. Over all we've been satisfied. Most manufacturers are conscious of the 32bit memory limit and keep machines with 32bit OSes, configured with no more than 3 gigs worth.
