HP Pavilion DM1-1030SA or Acer Aspire 1810TZ?

Hi all, newbie here...

Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice on which of the above laptops to buy?

I need something as light and portable as possible due to having a bad back and unable to carry much weight. It will be used mainly for work - Excel and Word documents, Outlook, browsing the web, watching videos on YouTube etc. Nothing strenuous, no hardcore gaming or anything! Want something that looks good and is sturdy too.

Any advice on which you'd go for, the HP or the Acer, or can anyone suggest another 11.6" model with similar spec?

I've been told that the HP wins on build quality and looks, but the touchpad and battery life are better on the Acer... any more suggestions?
