    laptop specs, plz advice

    I'm currently loking for a 2nd-hand laptop.
    And i stumbled on this page. They are asking 350 EUR for it. And another one is this , and this one costs 300 EUR.

    Now what would you guys do? (dont say buy a new one coz i aint got the cash for it.), is a Toshiba laptop of good quality, or should i rather go with the dell one?

    A laptop with the name Dell on it would be a very reliable machine on first thought. IMHO, I believe Dell laptops isn't very reliable, all the time. The reason I stressed out the word "all the time" is that most of the low-end models are lousy and some of the high-end models are very reliable.

    On the other hand, Toshiba is a better choice for notebook. From almost all aspects the Toshiba is better than Dell. The only thing that brings down Toshiba is its weight. Most of its models are damn heavy...
    It's unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.

    My Compaq Presario 2800 is cheap and EXTREMELY reliable.
    Think about it if someday your Dell crashes.
