Hey guys, I know you must get a lot of these questions but I'm trying to make up my mind which laptop is the better to buy. They are both the same price so I'm really undecided! Thanks

Don't you need to ask yourself whether you want a 14 or 15.6" screen? No one else can answer that for you.

they're both pretty low spec, you won't get much performance out of them.
As for which one you should go for, if it's a choice between only them, either will work. HP and compaq are one in the same, for the most part.

What is your bugdet?

edit - tbh I wouldn't get either - With a celeron you'll probably be disappointed by the speed, or lack of it.

so aside from the screen size diff, there's not much difference?

also is the HP 650 have bluetooth, not the other one?

x2 - they look exactly the same specifications except one has a bigger screen.

I assume the graphics chip is the same in both, if not, I would get the faster one.

1366x768 looks bad on any screen, but I'd go the 14" for slightly higher DPI.
