The Acer Aspire E1-772G features a matte, bright, contrast-rich Full HD display. In addition, its gaming performance is better than the Pavilion's and it comes with a 1TB hard drive and a free mSATA slot. Furthermore, it is cheaper than the Pavilion with a price of 600 Euros (~$823). However, the Aspire comes without Windows OS. It is generally difficult for the Pavilion to compete with the Aspire. The Acer simply offers more for the money. The Asus F75VC stands out with a low price: You will get an all-round notebook including Windows 8 for 500 Euros (~$686), which performs well in most application scenarios.
