Hi people,

Is a my first post in forum, I´m a brazilian, I live in Brazil and need us help. My cousin live in london and will go back to Brazil, so I asked him to bring a notebook to me.

I have doubts between two models.

1) Toshiba A500-17X 16" Widescreen

* Intel Core 2 Duo processor P7450 (2.13Ghz, 1066Mhz, 3MB Cache)
* Genuine Windows (R) 7 Home Premium
* 4GB Memory DDR2 800MHz FSB
* 500GB Hard drive 5400RPM
* Nvidia GT 230M 1GB GDDR3
* Harman Kardon Speakers
* HDMI connectivity
* DVD+RW

2) Packard Bell IPOWER GX-M-010 17" widescreen


* Intel Core 2 Duo processor P8400 (2.26Ghz, 1066Mhz, 3MB Cache)
* Genuine Windows (R) Vista Home Premium
* 4GB Memory DDR3 1066MHz FSB
* 500GB Hard drive 5400RPM
* Nvidia 9800GTS 1GB GDDR3
* HDMI connectivity
* DVD+RW

Config of the PB is better, I know! But I don´t know this brand. Don´t exist in Brazil!

Wich the better choice?

Thanks a lot!

From personal experience: Toshiba laptop's are good and stable.

Packard Bell = Horrible brand (albeit i can only speak for several years past, I do not know if they have improved).

Thank´s people! This news is very interesting but a bit exaggerated! I think the values are oversized! But it provides some sense!

Toshiba chose! Brand made a difference!

Yes! For sure Packard bell is exellent for me, I had it for 3 years now using Vista Home Premium. If you read the history of Packard bell how they exist in the market and who is the pioneering in the industry no other than Packard bell. they have their own Electronics manufaturing industry and later was in the record as the largest computer distributor in U.S.A and in Europe. Now a days a lot of different models from different anufacturers competing each others but my EasyNote RS65 with C2D processor is comparable with the 2nd generation level performance.
