Hi people,
I'm looking for a laptop, the budget is £600 or less.
When I have a laptop, I will mainly use it for multimedia such as editing film, adobe flash, after effects.
Of course I'll also use it for games such as HoN, CS:S, WoW, etc.

I have browsed around the internet. I have saw two laptops.

and

And I'm totally stuggle for choosing one of them.
Can you tell me which one would you prefer, choose, why, pros and cons for both if possible.
Any opinions are welcome!

Thanks alot!

You might want to go with the Toshiba as it has a x3 cpu and would come in play with film edit and such. The gpu is good for the games you listed.

Hello aunoki;

That i5-480M CPU is the more powerful CPU between the two.

Passmark CPU benchmarks scores:

AMD Phenom II N850 Triple-Core = 2082
Intel Core i5 M 480 @ 2.67GHz = 2757

Toshiba included that ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics card. Dell includes the GT 420M.

It looks like Nvidia GT 420M does better in WoW and Starcraft even though its overall a slightly weaker video card.

Hi thank you too much for your honest review, I personal does not know much about computers, I wonder which one will you choose/prefer more if you are me? Since both spec are pretty close :) 
Many thanks!

At about the same price I like the Dell XPS better.
