Different CPU, video is different, and less ram so not quite the same.

HP ENVY 15-u111dx x360 Convertible 5th Gen Core i7-5500U 15.6 Full HD Notebook (refurbished)
Also Walmart Price: $648.00
Refurbished HP Natural Silver 15.6" Envy 15-U111DX Laptop PC with Intel Core i7-5500U Processor, 12GB Memory, Touchscreen, 1TB Hard Drive and Windows 8.1
If you can live without the laptop being a convertible, yet want a dedicated videocard that doesn’t share memory, the option below might be for you. The Acer below has an I5 instead of an I7, but the performance isn’t far behind the I7 in today’s woot. For about $90 less, the Acer below has an I5 with a passmark of 3509 compared with today’s woot I7 with a passmark of 3969, BUT it has a dedicated Geforce 940M 4GB videocard. It also has a 1920x1080 display like today’s woot. If you do gaming, or anything more graphics intensive this would be a better alternative to today’s woot.
----This is only 8G Ram compared to 12G. Add a 4G DIMM $49.95
Thanks for pointing that out. With so much video editing going on, having memory that is not shared is important.
Is this factory refurbished computer okay? Can I trust it? Does it have a warranty?
That Acer doesnt appear to be touchscreen.
“factory reconditioned” means the item was returned, inspected, and restored to fully working condition by the original manufacturer or a certified partner. It’s as close to new as you can get without technically being “new”.
also the warranty is 90 Day HP
You’re right, the Acer is not a touchscreen, the touchscreen is a great option with a convertible computer like the HP Envy (putting it into tablet mode) today, but if you’re just needing laptop functionality you won’t miss the touchscreen.
Well, at least it appears to have a backlit keyboard (according to the specsheet from HP).
Does it have a DVD player?
