  1. I would absolutely go with the Dell. I rarely need the extra space that you get on the Toshiba, and the graphic card, RAM, and the processor is better on the Dell. I think it's an easy decision.

    I think both will give you a hard time playing Crysis, but I think you'll be good with the other stuff.

    edit: ppl hate Dell, and for some legitimate reasons. I have personally owned three or four Dell and while I have had some problems, as long as you opt in for a warranty and stay firm with their tech-support you're safe. I'm guessing Toshiba is no different in many regards... just my two cents.
  2. The Dell...

    1. Looks better
    2. Has a 7200 RPM HD
    3. Has more memory
    4. Has a stronger GPU
    5. Has a faster CPU

    The Toshiba has...

    1. A larger hard drive
  3. On a side note... a friend of mine recently bought a Dell Studio 15 and she says it's one sexy looking machine. She has an eye for those things. No, it doesn't have the appeal of an $1800 Apple laptop, but whatever... it doesn't look like a $300 Wal-Mart special either. I think that counts for something.
  4. im convinced.Thnks for the posts! im glad the little man(or rather the newbie) got some attention...but i hear that dell service is pretty bad.
