Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4036 vs Dell Inspiron 14

by sanchan89 / August 14, 2010 4:05 AM PDT


I am in a dilemma here whether I should buy the Toshiba[ ] or the Dell[ ].

Both cost exactly the same. The Dell is on a core i3 while the Toshiba is on Phenom X3. Here are some of the points I am considering
Dell >
+ Good pro reviews all over the internet (a bit of heating and average battery is all the bad)
- Erratic customer reviews ( ranging from real bad to real good )
- Dell's poor service/track record
Toshiba >
+ Most purchased laptop on Amazon
+ Quicker and free shipping from Amazon
- No pro reviews anywhere on the net.

Any help in tilting the scales either way is great.
Thanks Happy

Disregard my "M" for a moment. For laptops, today, I want to see the i3 or i5. Many of us have those and I can't write enough good things about Intel's latest.

The AMD is a value play and if it's not cheaper I wouldn't consider it.

That's just the sort of tip I was looking for. Big minus on the AMD.

Thanks Bob
