MODS PLEASE CLOSE - decision made

Just as the title says, which is the better of the three listed. I'm not looking for someone to come and say the Mac is better or the Toshiba or this model or that, please just comment on the three listed. I've attached the links to view the specs for each, the Sony, if bought, will be upgraded to 2GB for $50. Can't choose....

If all 3 have Vista ... don't waste your money. If they have XP, I would go with the Dell.

Go with the Dell and get Windows XP. I had Vista and got rid of that crap really fast.

The Dell. They're all shit, but Dell's support will at least take care of you when it craps out on you.

Re: You be the judge

I've used vista and I found it to be alright. It was far more stable than my xp rig. It would have momentary hiccups but it never deadlocked. That's more than I can say for when I was running xp.

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.

Re: You be the judge

I, on the other hand, never locked on XP. Not totally anyway. And that's since it came out back in what, 2001? Almost entirely on home-built machines.

Now, if only you could homebuild a laptop...

Re: You be the judge

I, too, am not extremely fond of any of the choices. Of the three, however, I would get the dell. I work for an IT firm and the majority of the HP and Sony laptops that we work on are built very poorly. It's not like the Inspirons are a shining example of quality, but they seem to hold up better than the others.

Re: You be the judge

It's a DELL! got the better deal on the Dell, plus it's from a seller in Canada so no duty fees to worry about. I've had my Dell Inspiron 6000 for over 2 yrs and have never had any trouble with it but thought about trying something new but that's not going to happen this time.

Thanks for the comments guys.
