    I've never owned an HP, and likely never will, but these two models seem to be loaded to the hilt. With laptops, get the most bang for your buck since they are difficult, if not downright impossible to upgrade. I like the fact that the RAM can be expanded from 4 to 8GB..that's a good feature.

    The second one (1390) has the better CPU and the better graphics. I would go for that. I have 2 HP`s. There is nothing wrong with them - they work fine. The only problem is the dismal HP support line. They are useless except if there is a hardware problem. I had a defunct optical reader (on a desktop) and they replaced it instantly. But for software questions you can come here.
    If the vents are on the bottom, you may consider getting a coolpad for $20. Then it runs a lot cooler. And don`t put it on the bed or any other soft surface then.
