Default Toshiba or Gateway? Help me pick

Im going to be buying a new laptop tomorrow. But I dont know which one. Here are the two im looking at. Both are the same price and im not going to be paying any moore then $800. I will be using this for school, wireless internet, music and videos

http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.gr...t=5095#spectop

Which is better and why?

PS: I plan on upgrading the gateway to 1gb of ram at some point if I got it. AND THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO IM LOOKING AT. So please dont post your thoughts on something else

Toshiba:

15" Screen vice 14
1GB RAM vice 512MB (Standard)
80GB drive 5400RPM vice 4600RPM
Full size keyboard.
plus a few odds and ends...

Plus, I also have a Toshiba (A75 S2111) and like it very much, also have good tech support with them.

The Gateway has a faster proc (x2 dual core) but I'd still lean towards the Toshiba. Higher end parts and better construction, Toshiba is a very good brand.
