Hi, I am currently in the market for a new laptop. I've narrowed my choices to the following two based on quality and bang for buck. What do you guys think? I'm not the greatest with computers, so if there are any other suggestions for no more than $1799CDN please feel free to add.
1) HP DV5040us w/ Windows Media Centre
AMD Turion 64x ML-40 with PowerNow, 15.4'', 2GB RAM, 100GB HD, 128MB ATI Dedicated graphics, DL DVD+/-RW and 6.6lbs
2) Toshiba Satellite A100 JH200
Intel Core Duo T2300, 15.4'', 1GB RAM, 100GB HD, 128MB dedicated ATI, DL DVD+/-R, 6.6lbs
Very similar systems, except for processor and ram, but the toshiba can max out a 4gb, but the HP has media centre and an RW drive which I find appealing.
What are your thoughts?
