Which laptop to buy?

  TheTigers08 22:52 28 Dec 2014

Hi guys, I am wondering which laptop is the better out of the following?



The Toshiba is slightly more expensive and has its own graphics card, which would be useful when playing the odd game. But I have read HP have a much better build and speakers etc. Also, am I right in thinking the HP has a better CPU?

Has anyone seen anything similar that may be better value?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This "Which laptop to buy?" question is asked fairly regular on this forum, usually by students wanting a laptop for university work and part-time gaming.

There should be quite a number of comments and suggestions within the PCA archives that might throw some interest on this subject.

I was looking at under the £500 mark. I use my current laptop a lot for work and playing occasional games, although not the latest demanding 3D games. Is it worth paying the extra for a graphics card?
