I think for gaming, the first would be better because aside from teh fact that you don't have as good battery life or harddrive space, you have quad cores and better RAM. Not too sure about the graphics cards though. That may ultimately be a deciding factor. Get someone else to help you there.

For anything that isn't gaming, though, definitely the second.

Well it won't be completely for gaming, but i'm sure i'll use it for some gaming eventually, not modern games of course.

I'll probably use it for college most of the time, the selling factor for the VAIO was the design and size, and for the Toshiba is the extra power.

Meh i guess i'll go with the Toshiba, it may be bigger and not as sexy, but the power makes up for it.



thanks Lykos for responding to my post

Meh you're right, i'll be getting a vaio, the toshiba is too big, sure the specs are better but it really doesn't matter, even if it does slightly better gaming wise.

i'm only planning to get small psn type of games or last gen games anyway.

Sony Vaio is like Apple computers. Much design and bad hardware. Just saying.

The Vaio doesn't even have dedicated graphics. If you had a slight craving for some gaming, even simple games like Minecraft will make Intel graphics-chip struggle.

If it uses a Intel graphics-chip then yes you need to change. If you planned on gaming. If it has anything other then that, for example Nvidia GT***M or AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon you will be fine.

But I thought that Laptops weren't good for gaming?

They are generally not AS good but they can still be good. Mine is running xbox 360 standard graphics pretty well I'd say. And it was only £500. So for those paying a bit more, they could run the most modern games on highest settings with high framerates. Overheating is still considered a problem it seems. Not so much of a problem for me unless I'm in a hot country or it's exceptionally hot weather.
