For $50 less ($399) you can get an HP computer from Sam's Club during their November 11th sale. Here are the pros and cons that I see when compared to this deal:
-HD screen instead of FHD
+8th gen i5-8250U, +2TB HDD, +12GB DDR4, +Optical Drive, +2-year warranty, +Amethyst Purple color option

I'm not familiar with the the laptop screen market, but you can probably put that extra $50 towards a 1080p screen.

Just to give everyone an idea of the 8th gen i5 vs the 7th gen i7

http://www.cpu-monkey.com/en/comp..._8250u-772

The 8th gen i5 is faster than this 7th gen i7.

7th Gen isn't a con and for this price point you shouldn't be expecting a dedicated graphics processor. It's a budget laptop for entertainment/multimedia purposes. If you're a college student who's looking to ball on a budget, this is your pick. There's only so much you can jam in a $450 laptop. With that being said, I agree on the 250gb SSD. We're coming up on 2018 now, there's no excuse not to have an SSD boot drive at the very least.
I think they are pointing out all the complaint posts from the 10% who are mever satisfied and crap on every thread for laptops. If a laptop deal is posted that meets their 'expert' requirements they complain about the price. They don't realize these machines are being built and utilized mostly by consumers who will never 100% their cpu or use over 3gb of ram daily.

With that said the 8th gen is worth spending a bit more if you do anything more than the basics. Its arguable that its worth it even if you only do the basics since the price difference is pretty much negligible at $20-$50 for a comparable pc/laptop. When it was 6th to 7th gen spendong that much for 10% performance gain is arguable. Spending that much for a 50+% boost is a no brainer really. Look at the comparison link in my post above. You can actually spend less on the i5 8th gen laptop and get better performance than this laptop. The screen is the difference of course but again its less costly and more capable on a performance level. Its personally why I decoded to only go for the 8th gen. i wont crap on any 6thor 7th gen but I don't think you should pay more for a 7th gen i7 vs a faster 8th gen i5. This is just my personal opinion and what I would recommend to my friends and family.

Not a good alternative. You'd be sacrificing in two areas that can't be upgraded for one thing that can be.

Pro tip: Never skimp on the things that can't be upgraded when buying a laptop. You can add an SSD, bigger hard drive, memory, etc, but you can't upgrade CPU (rare), video, display, etc.

Replacing a screen is easier than some laptop's 2.5inch hdd/ssd and ram.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nstes4o3WRk

There are some dell's where the case bottom is one piece and has no access port. the seam is at the same level as the keyboard/touchpad and you literally have to remove the keyboard, top plate, dvd drive, and motherboard (along with all parts attached to it) to get to the hdd and ram.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0OM7cothHU
that link shows an older model with an actual ram cover, but goes over the entire process if you just want to replace the HDD. Newer units don't always have the ram cover and have a one piece motherboard so your stuck taking pretty much everything apart.

Not all dell's are like this, and the 2-1 units have everything accessible after you take off the entire bottom plate, but it's something to be aware of. Not every laptop is friendly like back in the day where there was one or a few screws and a cover for just the ram+hdd and sometimes the wireless card.

On the cpu front it depends on your needs.

http://www.cpu-monkey.com/en/comp..._7200u-653

this i7 is 15% faster than the i5. if your just using the laptop for internet and microsoft office than I would say save the $90 unless you really want the 1080p screen. Of the two units I would bet the acer can get the hdd upgrade from a standard access panel underneath so it's much more user friendly in that respect.

on a side note personally on a non flexible unit I would take the 1080p screen over a 720p touch. Touch is worthless imo when there is a keyboard/mouse pad your reaching over. thats just my opinion of course. I would rather have non touch and reduce the price I am paying.

Replacing the screen is easy for those technically inclined, but that's not the majority. Same with RAM/Hard drive in some cases where they don't have access panels.

The i7/i5 performance difference is minimal, but that extra 15% will probably come in handy as the laptop ages, and software grows ever more bloated. I do agree that touchscreen adds nothing, since virtually every OS is better suited for keyboard/mouse.

In the end though, you'd save $90, sacrifice 1080p for 720p, and a slower CPU. If you chose to upgrade the screen to a 1080p; then you can count on that $90 being reduced. The only gain being storage? If you had the budget for either, I can't think of a situation where I'd recommend the cheaper option considering that storage is so easy to manage, and expand with external drives, cloud options, etc.

Edit: On a sidenote, the absolute worst hunk of garbage laptops I've had the displeasure of using are Asus. Their budget models are shoddy build-quality, and even something as simple as removing the optical drive required almost complete disassembly. Most laptops have a single external screw that allows removal of the ODD.

If you had the budget for either you might as well get the 8th gen deals floating around and score 50% more performance. The i5-8 sams deal is faster than this i7 and is 400. sams club deals not getting attention because of membership fee but they have a credit card offer that gives back the membership fee. You can also get someone to buy you a sams club gift card and use that.

in reality there are still 5+ year old i3 processors out there loading the internet fine. there are also the 'upgraded' netbooks that run fine on celerons. some run better with the crap 32gb nand baked in since its more responsive than most hdds.

again it all depends on what you want.
