Would you say that advent is a bad enough brand to not warrant getting the better specs for the same price?

Well i have never actually heard of Advent before,and i tend to buy brand name items when it comes to expensive stuff like a laptop,Plus it's refurbished.

Also,I Have to say toshiba's customer service is great! Unfortunately i have had to get my laptop repaired due to a power supply problem (2 months old) Which is bad,but when i rang them up they organized a courier to pick it up and everything! Plus i was speaking to australians,Not indians! (No Offence implied)!

But i still recomend the toshiba from personal experience with different toshiba laptops.

I Recently got rid of a 23 year old laptop,Running windows 3.1,black and white screen it worked PERFECTLY Except for the floppy drive and it was a toshiba,back in my n00b days i had a few toshiba laptops and i put them through HELL and they all worked fine!

So,Props to toshiba

Although i have heard of some members having toshiba laptops and different problems going wrong with them,so all i can say is do your research (Google reviews and such) when buying/choosing a laptop.

I know that Intel has awful graphics processors, but I have also seen that the x3100 actually can run COD4, and so there'd be no issue running HL2 I'm sure.

My old PC has a Geforce 4 mx 440 which runs half life 2 quite well, so I don't think you'll have much of an issue.

Ok, that's nice and all but really doesn't help me with my question. I have chosen my budget and the 3 laptops I'm choosing between, and would like help deciding please.
