I've been using acer laptop for almost 10 yrs (3 different models), common problems ng acer are fan/ventilation and the display (lcd/led inverter). performance wise, ok nman siya specially if you upgrade the memory to its maximum allowable capacity. I can only speak for acer since hindi pa ako nagkakaroon ng asus. hehe.. :)

I have the experience to have both brands. In terms of durability and longevity, ok ang ASUS. I had a 10-inch notebook that I bought in 2008, until now gumagana pa rin, medyo bumagal na nga lang saka yung left speaker bumigay, pero overused yun nung ginagamit ko pa. I had to sell it though (still working), since I needed more power and capacity to handle Adobe products, which made me switch to Acer. So far, ayos naman. Mabilis yung performance, though it is also quadcore so dapat lang na mabilis yun.

acer is a budget friendly laptop unlike asus

my recommendation to you is which do you prefer the most.
if all specs are the same check then the price,

but still different person will have different experiences among those brands.
some have good exp on asus, but some are not, then vice versa on acer.

its how you take care of the unit.

Tried both manufacturer's first batch of i7 laptops.
Both are nearly equal in terms of performance, although my experience with Acer is that it is more prone to faulty parts.
I preferred Acer's design but Asus seemed to be sturdier. Pinamigay ko na yung laptop (bought 6 years ago) and until now nagagamit pa din haha.

Right now I am using Alienware. Ibang iba yung quality and speed haha.
