Default Toshiba or HP notebook need help!!

Hey guys or girls...I need help picking the right laptop and these two almost seem identical except some minor differences in the processor chip and some components. Here are the two links.... TOSHIBA LINK http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ct_id=10913553 and HP LINK http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ct_id=10910096

If it's for general use. I'd go for the Toshiba due to it simply having a larger screen. It's able to show HD content at 720p. It also has built in wifi. The CPU differences are minimal at best, at only 100MHz between them.

The Toshiba has a bigger screen but the HP has a better video card with HDMI out. I'd still go with the Toshiba because of the bigger screen, but if the HP was a 17 incher, I'd go with that.

Yup, the two are very similar speed wise. A 100MHz difference is nothing you'll notice.

You're right I goofed. I missed the 802.11b/g WLAN on the HP.

So Atomic if you were me what laptop would you take? Which brand has more reliability number one and number two what could benefit me for having the HDMI out in the HP over the Toshiba. Also I am not sure what they mean by RGB on the Toshiba is this component?
