  1. Hi I am a newie to this site.

    my old laptop is on its last legs .

    I have been looking at a few new laptop and have narrowed it down to eith of the following.

    1.dell xps m15530 $1,619 aust dollars
    intel core2 duo t8100 2.1ghz
    4 gig of ddr2 sdram
    15.4 screen
    256 mb nvidia geforce 8600gt
    dvdrw
    320 hd drive

    2.asus m51vr ap046c $1,369 aust dollars
    intel core 2 duo 2.4ghz
    2gig of ddr2 ram
    15.4 screen
    hd3470 256mb graphics
    dvdrw
    320 hd drive

    at the moment the asus offers a 2 year warranty , however the dell is an extra $456 dollars for the same.

    looking at the above specs can anyone please give me their preference as I appear to be going around in circles.

    many thanks:)

    Looking at the above only, obviously the Asus is cheaper and faster, and therefore better.

    Before agreeing to the deal though, I'd say to them, put 4Gig of Ram in it and I'll take it :grinthumb
