Dell XPS 15 or Acer 5750g

My decision on a new laptop has come down to two choices.

The Dell XPS 15 (i5-2410, 500gb hdd, 1gb GT 520m graphics card) will be £559 with shipping (including discounts).

The Acer Aspire 5750g (same spec as the Dell but with a 540m graphics card) will be £528 with shipping.

On paper it looks like an obvious choice for the Acer. However, i've had poor experiences with both manufacturers in the past (multiple HDD failures with a previous Dell laptop and major heat problems with an Acer).

Any reason to pick the Dell over the Acer despite the £30 difference?

Unfortunately, much as the specs of the Dell are nice, I've now seen it doesnt have a numeric keypad, which is something I find myself using fairly often. As such it looks like it will have to be the Acer. Cheers
