Zero payoff except in marketing. How do you propose to get around Vista and XP 32 bit versions limiting applications to 2.0GB RAM?
Both have GMA video solutions (poor to no 3D gaming) and the CPUs are almost the same so I'd choose not by RAM but by seeing each unit and by the warranty I can get.
Gateway T-6836 (on sale at Best Buy for $649):
HP Pavilion dv2911us (on sale at Office Depot for $629):
I can't decide which is better! I am in love with the Gateway's appearance and the extra GB of memory (4GB compared to 3GB) because I can't stand slow computers in general, but I'm told by a friend that this HP laptop has better sound quality and my dad suggests that I buy an HP over a Gateway due to quality. Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance!
