    I don't have very good knowledge, they are very similar laptops and apart from RAM what is there that is much difference?

    Thanks.

    If you can live without it, wait for the Windows 7 laptops that will be incentized heavily. October 22nd is release date, so expect some tasty deals.

    The comet one is the better of the two but i would check to see if you are leigable for windows 7 upgrade ,

    My laptop has completely died on me and have been waiting for the 15th to get paid, now you tell me this.

    Has the comet one got a better processor?

    Agreed - although the comet one is very vague with its Core 2 Duo processor info. The Pentium t4200 is one of the newer pentium ones and has better reviews than lots of core 2 duo's

    It says in the spec that it is available for a Windows 7 upgrade.

    The T6500of the comet model has a passmark score of 1462 compared to the 1216 of the T4200 processor,

    Are these both good laptops for the £400 price tag?

    Thanks.

    They seem good value at that price unless you are willing to buy the 17" Dell which is a better bargain,

    Being available for a Windows 7 upgrade doesn't mean it's included in the price. Expect to pay an extra £40 to upgrade when the time comes (and based on reviews and inside info, you're going to want to).
