Dell versus toshiba Tags: Dell Toshiba Laptops Last response: March 10, 2011 3:37 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Bea_PACA March 9, 2011 7:29:30 AM Hello, I have read a lot of different opinions on Dell versus Toshiba. I would greatly appreciate your help on the choice to make for ùmy dad who is not a PC guru. Which is more reliable? DELL : Inspiron 17R(N00N7031), I3-380M (2.53GHz), 3072MB 1333MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM [1x1024 + 1x2048], Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator HD, 320GB (5,400rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive > 549,20 € TOSHIBA: Satellite L670-1F5, Intel Core i3 370M , 2,40 GHz, Mobility Radeon HD 5430, RAM:4 Go 599€25 Thank you for your advice, which is urgently needed, as my dad is going to buy a laptop anytime soon. I would like to help him in getting the best ration quality/price.

Both are similar in their reliability. My question would be this. Which system has the better advertised warranty? | Report abuse Bea_PACA March 10, 2011 1:21:15 PM Hello , Thank you for your swift answer. However, if my dad were to buy the following: Toshiba - Satellite L670-1DL - Ordinateur Portable 17,3" LED - Intel Pentium P6100 - 320 Go - RAM 4 Go DDR3 - Intel Graphique Media Accelerator HD Windows 7 at 433€ versus : Toshiba - Satellite L670-1LP - Ordinateur Portable 17,3" - Intel Pentium P6200 - 640 Go - RAM 4096 Mo - Windows 7 - ATI Mobility Radeon at 589€ would the processors/graphic card difference make a difference as his usage is internet, mail? Oversee the HD capacity . He already has one with 320 Go and is far from being filled. Thank you Best regards, Béa | Report abuse COLGeek Laptop Authority March 10, 2011 1:36:04 PM The discrete video would be much better for movies and overall performance. If he wanted to play a game, it would also prove better. Still, either choice will meet his basic needs just fine. | Report abuse Bea_PACA March 10, 2011 2:31:11 PM Thank you for your time | Report abuse COLGeek Laptop Authority March 10, 2011 3:37:35 PM Bea_PACA said:Thank you for your time You are most welcome. In general, a discrete video adapter adds flexibility and increases performance. Just a good rule of thumb to keep in mind.
