Personally looks like you get more bang with the HP. Any different in weight? HP heavier?

Well you are definitely getting better hardware in my opinion, but weight is important if you travel a lot

I always check these three sites before I purchase laptops or desktops for myself, friends or clients.

I do agree the HP has more bang but the weight could be a factor.
