I have to give the nod to the Asus. I tried another similar HP turion powered laptop and it was sluggish compared to the Core2Duo so with only these two under consideration the Asus wins this round.
Hey everyone, so I'm looking to get a new laptop. I'm not a gamer, I do a lot of surfing the web, a little video editing of my acting reel, and music downloading/playing.
I have had the same Dell laptop for almost 5 years now so anything new will be an upgrade, but I was torn between these two.
HP Pavilion dv7-3173nr
Asus G72GX RBBX05
Feel free to weigh in, or perhaps offer an alternate to these two around the same price point.
