HP vs Gateway Laptop

Specs: Windows 7
Hi guys,
I am confused between following two laptops (HP pvilion g4-2149se VS Gateway NV52L15U). HP was 428$ and Gateway was $373. Please provide which one is better for watching movies, doing daily activities, and may play few games. I know both of them can do this, but which one is better for above mentioned activities?

Thanks in advance for your help guys!!

- Vik

can't answer that, but I can advise you not to buy an HP one. I bought one, my son bought one. Both needed new motherboard after only 6 months, and even after that there were other niggling hardware problems, wireless adapter stopped working etc.

There is a reason why HP is no 1 pc maker and gateway is no 5. Yes it is true that most of entry level HP(most brands) PC's are not made well(cheap materials & components).

The quad core A8 chip in Gateway laptop is better than A6 dual core chip in HP notebook plus intergrated graphics of A8 chip is better.

Gateway is owned by Acer.

Did you compare the specs? It appears the HP comes with a dual core & Win7, the Gateway comes with a quad core & Win8. You're going to have to pay more if you want to be able to play games, unless you're willing to settle for running them on low settings. Then again, it would depend on the game - FreeCell & MineSweeper will fly on either one of them!

APU's are fine for light gaming. A8 chip will play old games at high settings and new games at medium to low settings.
