    Us Lenovo vs Toshiba Laptops Brand. Bestbuy

    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.

    I'd go with the Lenovo:

    - It has the 4500HD vs the 4500M on the Toshiba
    - 1go more ram
    - Its keyboard should be better
    - It seems to have a better battery life
    - Stronger build

    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.
    Current: Samsung ATIV Book 8, with 250 GB Samsung 840 EVO (RAPID enabled), Centrino 7260 Dual-band, 16 GB RAM.


    Past Notebooks: Asus Q500A, Samsung Series 7 Chronos, Asus N53SV-B1 Xotic Custom, HP Probook 6545b, Compal HGL30, IBM Thinkpad X22, Dell Latitude D810, IBM Thinkpad T42p, HP Pavilion zd7000, Dell Inspriron 4100, Toshiba Satellite 335CDS, The ORIGINAL "Compaq" portable PC (yes, really). And before that I had the use of an Osborne 1.

    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?
