The Lenovo has a significantly better CPU. Are they really going to install all that nonsense on your computer though? Especially the trials that will harass you to upgrade to a full version. They are probably paid to install that on your computer.

Lenovo's are built to a much better quality, in my opinion.

To be honest, you should try get yourself a refurbished Sony Vaio, or some kind of Toshiba.

Hod both for numerous years, and they only failed on me due to neglect

In general, most hardware has a very low failure rate. Brand names (like Acer and Lenovo) don't really do anything other than buy computer parts from companies such as Intel (who actually produce hardware), and then slap them together and put their own brand label on it. Because of this, you need to judge the quality of the individual components. In this case, the Lenovo components are of higher quality.

The difference in battery life is due to the Acer having a lower power CPU. The thing is, it really depends on what he is using it for. If he's only using it for microsoft word, he could probably go with a CPU of even lower power which will give him even more battery life. A more powerful CPU is not always better, especially if you're not making use of it.
