Hi

I would really appreciate advice on which of the below would be the fastest. Is the asprice 1.6ghz or 2.6!?

Acer Aspire E1-572 Black - Core i5-4200U (1.6GHz/2.6GHz/3MB) 6GB DDR3 (8GB) 750GB 15.6" HD LED Win8.1 64Bit DVDSM Intel HD 4400 webcam 1xUSB 3.0 HDMI 1YR or HP 250 G2 Black - Core i3-3110M (2.4GHz/3MB) 6GB DDR3L 750GB 15.6" HD LED Win8.1P 64Bit (Win7P) DVDSM Intel HD 4000 webcam BT 4.0 1xUSB 3.0 HDMI 1YR

Laptops direct have said: "This has a turbo boost feature for when using one programme or game, this will be as fast as the HP but may appear slightly faster.. You will have 4 cores working the lower speed"

Thanks
