Neither. First off no body whom you ever heard of actually makes laptops. I would suggest that you go to one of the US distributors of those companies who actually build them for the major vendors to get a better deal. Clevo for example is on eof those OEM / ODM vendors. They have an outfit called prostar that seels their laptops in the US. www.pro-star.com
You can go there, pick out a basic model and have the thing built to your specifications.
