Hard pick. The both have their ups and downs.

#1 Has better graphics
#2 Can upgrade to 4GB of RAM

What would you be using the laptop for?

Thanx for your reply PuNkY

I would be using it for applications such as Visual Basic.NET studio, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash, Adobe Illustrator. I would also run Windows XP Professional 64bit (do not need Vista yet, since I dont have any software for it). Sometimes I need to have multiple applications open. What I am mostly wondering is what is the difference in the Processors of the laptops I posted? What is the latest technology? Is Intel Core Duo better than Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology or vice versa? Is Sony better than Toshiba or vice versa? Thanx

Intel Core Duo is better. Its the newest technology out. I would suggest #1 cause of the better graphics since you will use PS and Flash etc. Don't take my word for it, I don't want you to blame me for suggesting a bad laptop lol. hopefully some one else will suggest.

Same with me but I have a friend in Canada so I knew one. That is kinda weird though.
