I plan on purchasing a laptop, and i've narrowed my choices down to these two, since my budget is around $800 US. I use Photoshop and Premiere a lot, so i decided to go with the 2GB+ Ram models. However, i've heard a laptop's performance slows down when it has 3 Gigs instead of 2 Gigs because a 3Gig breaks the Core 2 Duo's Dual Channel requirements. Im not a heavy gamer, just casual.

So what im trying to say is basically which laptop should i get? is 1 more gig of ram worth the extra 100$?

HP Pavilion dv6833us- $729.99




Toshiba Satellite A205-S5859 - $699.99



I'm not a big toshiba guy so i dont know how their laptops are. I found a Gateway that's cheaper with the same specs but I never trust gateway. Their customer service is horrible.

If you really plan on buying a laptop I suggest you ask this question in a proper setting, like a computer forum. Not a good idea to ask this in an anime forum.
