Yea I am stuck between that one and DELL Inspiron 15R (i15R-2646MRB) 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium. They are both 700 and Dell has free shipping but is the Dell Better because it has 6 GB of ram and what about the graphics card? I can't figure out how you tell which graphic card is better or worse.

ASUS and Toshiba are supposed to be the most reliable, but my daughter is having trouble with her Toshiba. I've had 2 Dells, my daughter had one, my mother had one. No problems with any of them other than batteries needed replacement after a few years.
