I searched for some laptops and found the HP ENVY DV-7212nr and the Toshiba Satellite P870-ST3GX1 the main differences that made me wondering which is better are: Toshiba: -HDD 1TB (5400rpm) -12 GB RAM HP: -HDD 750GB (7200rpm) with acceleration cache (32 GB SSD cache) -8GB RAM Any other suggestions are welcome too.
