Which laptop should I get??????????? TOSHIBA vs. ACER

Hey guys I need some good opinions on which computer to get...

The first one is an Acer Timeline. The main thing that attracts me to this laptop is the look and battery life. The processor isn't as fast as I would like it to be (1.4GHz) but it has this new processor called the Intel Core 2 Solo.....Here are the specs....

The second laptop is the Toshiba E105-S1402 Notebook. This is "Blue Label" certified by Best Buy only meaning it is recommended and meets certain specification by Best Buy. This has a much more processor speed at 2.26 GHz, but has an Intel Core 2 Duo. Here are the specs...

Thanks in advance for any advice....price isn't really an issue, the Acer is actually 50 bucks cheaper, and I can avoid paying tax since its online.

Re: CPU's

I didn't compare the other specs.

All I can say: it's quite understandable you have a longer battery live if you've got 1 slower CPU in stead of 2 faster CPU's. It depends on the intended use of the machine which of the two you prefer.
