Get the one you like it - ligther, better looking etc.
If you have Bluetooth peripherals (mouse, headphones), or plan to buy / rent BluRay movies, then Dell is better choice.
You did not mention what screens these laptops have, but in that price range, it's crap anyway on both.
I would stick with Dell - it's support site is much better organised than Toshiba' one.
Thanks for the feedback.
I placed an order for the Dell. At least it has 6gb of ram, saves me time from having to order a part and upgrade esp since I think I read somewhere that Dell's are much more complicated to upgrade.
Both of these laptops are 15.6". I don't think 15" is crap though. I went to the store to check out sizes a few days ago, 14" is too tiny for me, 17" is way too big to carry, 15" seems fine.
One thing I don't like about the Dell or actually any laptop in this price range is the glossy screen, but I guess I will just have to get used to it coming from a nice matte screen on a desktop. Maybe the reflections in stores are worse due to all the fluorescent lights, I don't plan on using it outdoors.
