The Acer has a nVidia 940mx which is more powerful than the Intel HD 620 that the HP has so the Acer has better hardware for games. However, the Acer has Linux while the HP has Windows 10. That means unless you plan on installing Windows 10 on the Acer, then you can only use Linux compatible software and play Linux compatible games on the Acer.

There is an emulator program for Linux called WINE that allows you to run Windows programs and play some Windows games in Linux, but it does not fully support DirectX 11 yet (still under development) and I am not sure how well it supports DirectX 10. That means you are mostly limited to playing games that supports DirectX 9. You will have to do some research.
