Sorry to add ... The cost of Acer is 1049$ -- Is 5580 worth the money spend?

Judging by the specs and cost, why would you even consider the Acer 5580? I would suggest you to go for another model in the Toshiba range.

That's a significant price difference (which I assume is because you're comparing a 1st generation Core Duo with a 2nd generation), so it's kind of a difficult comparison.

What exactly are you going to be doing with this machine? And how long do you expect it to remain viable?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
