I am in the market for a laptop, ideally a screen around 13 inch or less. Have narrowed it down to the Dell Vostro 1310, but cannot choose between two options and was hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction.
Option 1 is a Dell Vostro 1310, with Intel® Celeron® Processor 550 (2.0 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache, 533 MHz FSB), 1 gig of ram and 160 hd at £310
Option 2 is a Dell Vostro 1310, with Intel® Core2 Duo Processor T5670 (1.8 GHz, 2 MB L2 Cache, 800 MHz FSB), 2 gig of ram and 250 hd at £385
The main question I cannot answer is, for web browsing, storing 4-5000 songs and approx 1000 pictures do I need to spend the extra £75 or should I keep it in my back pocket for a rainy day. I appreciate the extra benefits of option 2 are good value, but do I need to bother spending the money. I also know that the hd on option 1 will be plenty big enought for my use. I currently have an external HD for storing the songs and music. Will be running vista so will the 1 gig of ram be ok.
I know nobody has a magic wand, but various deals on these laptops end tomorrow. Am I better off waiting for the new 'deals' or grab what I can now?
Any help appreciated.
