I would appreciate if anyone could advise me which of my two options is the best.

I'll need my new laptop for grad school in a year or so and for some work related issues. Also I need a lot of capability for music and pictures, so those are my main needs.

Stated the above, which laptop is better?

Option 1 : DELL XPS M140

Intel Pentium M Processor 750 (1.86GHz/2MB Cache/533MHz FSB)
14.1 inch WXGA True Life LCD panel
1 GB Shared DDR2 SDRAM 2 Dimms
120 GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
Intel Pro 2200 and Dell 350 Bluetooth Internal Wireless Cards


Option 2: Toshiba A105-S4014

Intel CORE DUO Processor T2400
15.4 TruBrite Widescreen
1024MB DDR2 Memory
120 GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
Integrated 802.11 wireless LAN

It is my first laptop buy and would greatly appreciate if someone could advise me through this buy..

Hope anyone can help me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
