Please advise on Laptop

My son had his laptop stolen, this being an Acer TravelMate Timeline 7730.

His insurance have offered him a Samsung R780 as a replacement, but if he insists they will supply the Acer. The insurance say they would prefere to supply the Samsung as in their opinion it's the better more reliable laptop.

Which is the better machine to go for. Many thanks

If you compare the two side by side then my choice would be the Samsung. Newer processor, more RAM, webcam. That's my opinion.

That was my impression, but I know very little about laptops

I agree, if that Samsung you link to is the correct model it looks much better (spec wise) than the older Acer. I'd definately go for the Samsung given the choice.
