Toshiba's notebooks have a much better reliability record than Dell's notebooks.

Dell's business laptops (especially the service) tend to be leaps and bounds above the Inspiron lines. The Vostro has a Magnesium body which will make it more durable than what appears to be plastic in the Toshiba.

As for gaming, neither will provide you will a very good experience since they are both integrated cards (built into the CPU actually). You can play games like Battle Field Bad Company 2 or COD MW2 on low settings and low resolutions. Games like WoW and Starcraft II may be playable on medium.

I'm not foolish enough to equate durability with reliability. When the Vostro first came out they had some problems with grainy screens and audio problems. So can you tell me what a magnesium body has to do with ensuring the reliability of the other components and the assembly quality of the notebook?

Don't jump down my throat for offering an opinion. Personally, durability is part of reliability. Obviously, a laptop cannot be considered reliable if the chassis breaks. Sorry, that's just my opinion. Go ahead and get angry at it again.

Nope, I'm done arguing. I said in my earlier post that neither machine is going to be overly good for gaming, so you may want to consider some other options that have dedicated graphics cards.

My personal opinion is that the Dell is the better machine.
