    Please help me choose!

    Hi,

    I'm looking at the Toshiba and the Lenovo on the argos outlet ebay for a present.

    Would either of them meet these min. specs? It's not a deal breaker but if one of them did that would make it an easy choice.

    •CPU: Intel Pentium® or AMD @ 1,5 Ghz
    •RAM: XP (SP2) – 1 GB / Vista – 1.5 GB
    •HD space: 6gig Free Space
    •Video: 64 MB Shader Model 2.0 Graphics cards such as GeForce FX (5 series) class card or higher, ATi 9500, x300 series or higher and Similar chips from other manufacturers
    •Drivers: DirectX® 9.0c (included) and latest video drivers
    •DVD-ROM : 2 speed DVD reader or greater required.

    Please help me choose between them, I have no idea which is better. OS is not an issue as I can source my own.

    The lenovo. As a personal choice I'd go for it, and for what seems to be little more it's a better spec.

    Thanks very much

    I would go for Toshiba.

    Considering that there isnt a great deal of choice between them spec wise I would have to plump for the lenovo. The toshiba is one ugly laptop! it already looks old and dated so if this is going to be for a young person to which looks will matter I would go for the lenovo.

    Ive had a play around with a toshiba similar to that one at uni and they are very plasticy, cheap and tacky
