Hi everyone, after endless laptop research I'm unable to decide between these two laptops. I'd really like to go for the cheaper reconditioned model but am worried that the other model may be much better.

As you can probably tell, I'm not great with this technology 'stuff' so any pointers from those of you in the know would be great! Thanks in advance.

PS. will be using it for internet and photos mostly.

agree with Littlelapin....

.. however.. we aware that this is an AMD chipset.. of very rare (and I mean very rare) occasions there can be some incompatibility with some hardware or software as most stuff is written for Intel chipsets...

That being said.. if it was my money I would take door number 2...

Also Toshiba are a great make.. very solid and reliable... better build quality than Dell's for example so good choice
