Hi.

My Elonex webbook has died a death and I've looked at two other smaller laptops, both very similar specs.

There is only £50 difference. Toshiba laptops I know and Asus Motherboards I know.

Just need opinions really as to which to buy.

TIA

It's a personal thing, but if I was going to choose between the two I would go for the Toshiba - I love their laptops, and have never had one let me down yet. As I said, it's a personal thing, and there's nothing particularly wrong with the Asus as far as I can see from the review.

My local computer shop says that when it comes to repairs he finds Toshiba and Asus are the easiest / likeliest to be repairable and are well made. I am also thinking os the Toshiba for my wife.

Thanks FE and john bunyan.

What really threw me was the specs were so much the same. I've had 2 Toshiba's in the past and both are still working. (my daughters have them now).

I've also had 3 Asus Motherboards in my desktop pcs and found them really excellent.

I think I'll probably end up with the Toshiba.

Thanks again

Although I resolved this posting, I thought I should just update it by saying 'I went for the Asus '

I didn't care for the Toshiba cosmetically and the Asus is Dual core so A faster Machine.

In the 16 hours I've owned it I'm quite happy with my decision.

Thanks again.
