Help on buying: which is better laptop for similar price? Tags: CPUs Laptops Processors Display Last response: December 10, 2011 11:28 AM in CPUs Share Tiffany Tipton December 10, 2011 8:47:39 AM I am trying to decide on similarly priced entry laptop between the two below: (1) Gateway - Laptop / AMD E-Series Processor / 15.6" Display / 2GB Memory / 320GB Hard Drive - NV51B25U http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+-+Laptop+/+AMD+E-Se... (2) Toshiba - Satellite Laptop / Intel® Pentium® Processor / 15.6" Display - C655-S5314 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Toshiba+-+Satellite+Laptop+... I am confused on processors because they are different types and people have different opinion on that. The laptop is to be used for (in order of most usage): 1) Skyping 2) Web surf/ web video watching, games 3) DVD watching/ music 4) Word/Excel 5) other stuff Skype and web surf will probably be done at simultaneously. Thanks for any help.

It will also have a much better battery life aswell. Adds 2GB of Sodim identical memory to it though. RAM is very cheap these days so one doesn't really consider it when buying low end laptops. | Report abuse simon12 CPUs Master December 10, 2011 11:28:42 AM Both are fairly basic 1 has better graphics and battery life 2 has more CPU power (still not much) and more RAM | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Help on buying: which is better laptop for similar price?> Related ressources: ForumWhich Laptop is the better buy ?
