Laptop Choice-Please Help

I recently ordered a Toshiba L755-S5308 with an i5 processor, 320 gb and 4kb of memory from Best Buy. I was informed last night that they are now out of stock and they would like to replace it for the same price with a Gateway NV57H57u. It has the same processor, better graphics package and more memory. Although they are giving me 6 gb of memory when the 4 probably would be sufficient. My dilemna is that I am not familiar with the Gateway laptop and have been unable to find a review of this particular one. I really wanted a Toshiba but this is the only option Best Buy would give me for the same price. Any insight you can give me or knowledge would be greatly appreciate, I am running out of time before Christmas. Thank you for any help or guidance you can give me.

  1. I'm in the exact same situation. Although my personal experience with Gateway is also limited, a very similar machine got pretty decent reviews by BB customers. I think the RAM, HD, and USB 3 port are the only differences between the one you and I were offered and this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Gateway+-+Laptop+/+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B+i5+Processor+/+15.6%26%2334%3B+Display+/+4GB+Memory+-+Blue/3411173.p?id=1218399180563&skuId=3411173
  2. Do not go with the Gateway. Gateway at one time was a decent computer company, but has gone the cheap way as Dell has, and is no longer a reliable computer. Personally, Gateway is Sh*T. Stick to your guns and demand at least a Toshiba. The toshiba will last you longer and is a better computer, and at least Toshiba will be around for a while.
