I would lean more to the acer here, because it has a bigger harddrive and an ati graphics chip set. But the toshiba is a better brand in my eyes.

Toshiba= dual core, brandname,

Acer= more storage, faster clock speed

acer is a leading brand in laptops they sell the more units per year then toshiba im on an acer at the moment its easy to get parts for and ive had this for 3 years and the only complaint ive got is the paint has rubbed off the plastic touchpad keys. They are a bit slow on start up with the "acer service extras" but once running are really good

Default Re:

Hey,

Yeh because there's ATI Xpress 1100 graphics on the Acer, and the fact this it comes with Vista has really drawn my attention away from the Toshiba.

...still, the Core Duo processor on the Toshiba keeps taunting me.

But Acer it will be.

Cheers .
