Hey guys!

I've checked a lot of forums and still can't find what best suites for me. Graphics aren't that important. Now, which is better for music production? What are the pros and cons?:

In terms of performance, the ASUS kills the Toshiba. In terms of battery, the ASUS kills the Toshiba. Satellites have crap keyboards with lots of flex. The ASUS will be better. It may have less RAM, but what it does have is faster. The HDD may be smaller as well, but it's important to remember that RAM and HDD are quite easy to upgrade; with GPU and CPU it's a lot harder, in that the GPU cannot be upgraded and the CPU is likely to be impossible. Go for the ASUS.
