I've heard good support outside of the USA for Asus. And not so good here so all things equal go with the best support.
I'm stuck between the new Qosmio (something 805 I think) and Asus G50. From what I can tell, they have the same specs but the Toshiba has a faster processor while the Asus has 1gb more ram and is 64 bit compared to Toshiba at 32 bit. Which laptop is the better choice? The Asus is 1250 while the Toshiba is 1400 although it's not much of a difference if the Toshiba would be better, I'd be glad to pay the extra.
