Both are coming up that they aren't available or something.

Post the specs of them, and then I can help you out.

The HP Pavilions are nice, I just bought one. I reckon either one would be able to play some games, but not the newest games at all. Neither one has a great video card. The HP I just bought has an 8400m video card so it'll probably be decent.

Toshiba doesn't have a better reputation. They used to in the 90's, but now they're another notebook company.

HP has been very successful with their new designs, and customers seem to love them. Overall I recommend the HP, simply because HP has a larger and more reputable presence in the notebook industry than Toshiba.

^ Have you ever owned a HP or a Compaq Laptop Or Desktop?

Every HP and Compaq I have worked on or friends own,they have had issues with them,from the Hardrives stuffing up to the WLAN Switch not working...Also What borat said.

IMO HP and Compaq Suck.

Not in your original post.








Yeah I do own a few HP systems. Do you?

Naturally when they're coming to you, they're going to have a problem with their PC. The larger the market share, the more complaints you're going to get. You don't see people going to forums to post "My system is completely fine, and I absolutely have no problems with it!"

Maybe because the majority of people in your area own a HP system?

By the way, IBM doesn't make personal computers anymore.

I don't know. My office has a slew of HP workstations, and their reliability has been outstanding. I also know Dreamworks SKG uses HP workstations for their animation.

I personally own a few HP systems, and I use three on a daily basis. Their customer service is always friendly and responsive.

Like I said, your experience will vary.

sony IMHO depending on spec, FTW..in any case, Dell FTL, big time!!...no problems with Sony, even tho you didn't mention it..but ah in reference to HP and Toshibi, I would have to say that, yes HP comes with a bit of useless software, but uses quality parts...I can't say that I know much about toshibas, but I would imagine they are quite good as well.....you could always check newegg.com for other laptops, or go the companys' (toshiba, hp) site and build your own there and see who's got better price/value!

Toshiba rocks, I just have not so perfect experience with HP, but Toshiba is like heavy duty thing, may be just for me... but sure, settings make some difference.

I know it's just general suggestion, but it make sense too, u wanna use your laptop for some time without problem, right?

HP laptops are quite nice, and while they do include some bloatware, it's easy to remove. I hate their monitors however :-/
