I have loads of space on my desk drive so 160 gb HD sounds good to me. I want a webcam built in for when I study with people who can't meet or tutor those who can't meet. Which both have. So my question which is better dell or toshiba? And maybe are there any better out there then these? 700 plus tax should be about how much I can spend. I have yet to check out best buy. I went there to buy Naruto uncut boxset 2. It wasn't in but it was almost 50 bucks. I bought Uncut 1 for 25. I was like no thanks. Thanks.
