I develop desktop applications(on windows platform using .NET(winforms, WPF etc) so i will have to test them on windows7,vista, xp etc at the same time. I use VMWare to run multiple OS at the same time to test my stuff. So i am looking for at least 8 GB RAM and probably faster processor.

Out of the two, I'd suggest the Lenovo in terms of reliability. Long story short, HP's tend not to last that long.

@"buwish", I really appreciate your reply. Do you have any other notebook in your mind or Lenovo is the better choice?
Thanks again
