I would not choose any of these two (HP and Acer) but if I'm forced to  
take one of them it would be Acer. HPs had a lot of issues with  
motherboards recently; and personally I never liked Acer brand. It's just  
not so good quality.
Asus is good I believe but my choice would be Dell.
Good luck, anyway :)
