Toshiba or Hp for new laptop?

by violetknight / April 19, 2013 7:23 AM PDT

I need to buy a new laptop after my last one died of motherboard failure. I want one with good speakers and at least 500 gb hard drive for under $600. I plan on surfing the web, watching videos, listening to music and using InkScape. So far my choices are either Hp or Toshiba. Here are two I like:

I am open to other choices. I have heard good things about Asus laptops but do not know where to start because they do not sell them on their site.

and I think it's fabulous. I've had it since 08 and the only thing I've had to do is replace a fan a month ago . Those Harmon/Kardon speakers really Rock.

Still smarting from a HP failure to repair my 3 month old laptop. Give them a decade to sort that out.
