Default HP g6-1384ea VS Toshiba Satellite L850-166

I desperately need a laptop and I have found these two. I will be using it for school work (Microsoft Office), photo and video editing, storing videos, photos and music but not much gaming. I will be do a lot of Internet browsing, multitasking and download and uploading stuff onto the Internet.
The only real difference is that the HP is 479.99 and has i5 2450m (2.5GHz), 6GB of RAM and 750Gb of Hard Drive whereas the Toshiba is 449.99 and has i3 2350m (2.3GHz) , 8GB of RAM and 640GB of Hard Drive.
If you want them, here are the links:

Toshiba: http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/toshiba...20747-pdt.html
Please help me!!'

For what you want to do, the i5 is the superior chip.

The i5 is a bit faster and supports turbo core. While the HP has less memory, it has a larger hard drive which is ideal if you plan on storing a lot of stuff.
