HP-15-af107ns vs Acer Aspire E5-574-57W2, i5-6200U


Apr 5, 2016
Please help without a decision I need to make in the next day or two.

I bought the HP-15-af107ns and an angry friend destroyed it within two months of purchase. I was sure it was right for me at the right price and I really like the quad core (4 is better than 2 right?!) when I bought it. My friend was just going to buy me the same one again if it couldn't be fixed but then in the local computer shop when they told me it wasn't worth fixing they told me I had paid too much (500 euros) and I should buy an intel i5 instead.

The two basic options are:

I originally bought the HP because I multitask a lot and always have windows open and I play a few games but nothing special (Europa Universalis 4 mainly). The price is the same, the ram the same. The main comparison is processor and graphics card.

Also I now have 8gb ram and a hard disk salvaged from the hp. Is it worth buying the hp and adding 8gb or will it not really make a difference?
