What do you think of this spec?

I am looking at getting a budget laptop and was wondering if those out there who are more au fait with these things than me could give me some advice.

Looking at two...

First: Intel Core 2 Duo T5870 2GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 15.6" TFT, DVD-SM, GMA 4500M, WLAN: BGN, Webcam, 6 Cell, Windows 7 Home

Second: Intel Core 2 Duo T6600, 3GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.4" TFT, DVD±RW, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium, 6 cell, webcam, card reader, Wireless Lan 802.11b/g

The screen swings it for me

I'd want to know the brands as well. I'd take a Samsung over an Acer, even if the Acer had a slightly higher spec on paper, for example.

The T5870 is an Asus with a 15.6 HD TFT 1366x768

The T6600 is a zoostorm no real details on the screen, the screen in 1280x600.

Samsung laptops are amazing. They usually come with discs so you dont have to load all the bloatware that is usually preloaded onto laptops.

Are you sure that's not 1280x800? 1280x600 is an odd resolution.

If you're satisfied with the quality of the keyboard, trackpad, screen etc. on both and are down to deciding on specs than I'd go with the higher resolution 1280x800 one.
