First laptop - a lot of money for what it is. It has an old processor and not enough ram. I suspect you could actually get Trading Standards interested in its claim to be a gaming laptop: you won't be able to play much more than Solitaire on that - it certainly won't handle demanding 3D games. Oh, and for a family laptop it's got a very small hard drive. And it runs XP, not Vista.
Second laptop: better value for money - bigger hard drive, Vista. But you still won't be able to play games - frankly, unless you're prepared to drop over a grand on a laptop they're not much use for gaming.
The Tosh is good value for money but it does worry me that they claim it's a "mobile gaming solution". At 3.27kg it's not very mobile - my laptop weighs 2.2kg and it feels like it weighs a ton by the time I get it to an airport gate - and it's not much cop for gaming, either.
