    Toshiba vs Lenovo laptop Brand
    I recently am going to get a replacement laptop for my Compaq cq50 - 115 nr via the no Lemon policy at Best Buy's geek squad.

    Which laptop is better and also which line, the G500's Lenovo's "Value line" brand or the Toshiba Satellites L500 basic series? Please click on the links to the info on bb's website.


    Toshiba: L505-5018 (Satellite)
    intel pentium t4400 2.2 Ghz
    3 gigs ddr3 ram
    320 Gigs HDD space
    15.6" TFT-LCD widescreen display
    Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M
    With 128-1341MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Built-in stereo speakers.

    This is an "exclusively at Best buy notebook", but I heard it's comparable to the Satellite L505-5015

    Lenovo: G550 ("Value Line") As good as thinkpads?
    intel pentium t4400 2.1 Ghz
    4 gigs ddr3 ram
    250 Gigs HDD space
    15.6" WXGA LED widescreen display
    Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
    Features 384MB shared graphics memory for impressive images.

    Price is roughly the same: no objective. Or if you Notebook pros don't like these options, help me pick out one roughly this price range on Best Buy.com (~$500)

    thanks!

    Also on a side question how do these brands compare to the Dell inspiron line? Are they cheaply made? How does the Intel pentium t4400 dual core compare to the AMD Turion X2 Rm-70? (the processor of my old laptop being replaced)

    If I had to choose, I would go with the Lenovo G550.
    It has one more gig ram, and has WXGA LED widescreen display.

    Toshiba's got a bigger hard drive. You're more likely to sue that then the RAM. RAM is also easier and cheaper to upgrade later.

    cheaper to upgrade than the Hard drive. What read gets me is the Lenovo's sturdiness and the LED screen. Can the toshiba really compare with that?
