    Toshiba or Dell.

    Dell Inspiron 1505
    15.4 Screen
    Intel® Core™ Solo Proc T1350 (1.86GHz/533MHz/1 X 2MB L2 Cache)
    512MB Shared4 Single Channel DDR2 SDRAM 533MHZ, 1 DIMM
    60GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive
    24X CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive
    ell Wireless 1390 802.11g Mini Card (54Mbps)

    or

    Satellite Pro A100
    Celeron® M 390 1.70GHz
    256MB
    15.4" Widescreen XGA 1280x800
    Radeon® Xpress 200M 64MB-128MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory
    40GB 5400rpm
    CD-RW/DVD-ROM

    the dell is $100 more. I don't know about the dell mainly because I have an irrational dislike for them due to the dell dude.'

    What to do?

    fucking neither.

    What you're asking is do I take the shitty notebook, or the shitty one?

    I know it's shitty smartass, but all it's really going to do is surf the internet with the occasional word document. 2000 is a bit overkill for something that will be sporadically used...

    The specs on both suck pretty bad, and I'm just not a Toshiba person anyway. 2MB L2 cache is weak sauce.

    Unless one of those was really fucking cheap, I would just spend a little more and throw down for a macbook.

    Neither. Might as well pick-up some hookers and an 8-ball and have a better time.

    In which case, go with either. That said, you'll get the support with Dell if you're not to tech savvy, and the specs are higher.

    You get what you pay for, and if you are in the market for a low-end laptop, then that's what you are going to get. As long as you aren't expecting too much from it, which I assume you aren't, you will be happy with either.
