  • Asus K50Id or Toshiba L675

    I am trying to decide between this Asus laptop-K50ID and the Toshiba L675. The Asus has a Pentium T4400 and the Toshiba has an i3 in it. The Asus has dedicated graphics while the Toshiba has integrated graphics. The Toshiba also has a larger screen and a larger harddrive. The Asus has a led backlit display while the Toshiba does not. The laptop will be primarily used for surfing the web, checking e-mail, occasional downloading, watching a few movies, and playing web based games. I want the better computer for these functions. I an willing to sacrifice the larger screen size and hard drive of the Toshiba, if getting the i3 processor will run noticeably better than the T4400 the Toshiba has. I also would like to know if the graphics card in the Asus is worth consideration over the the integrated graphis in the Toshiba. I had to return a Toshiba C650 because the movie I played started choppy when first played (also had integrated) graphics). I also had the the cursor freeze for a bit when using the touchpad but eventually returned to normal.Cost is not a factor since there is only a $50 difference between both. Please help.
