    Considering the history of toshiba having the reported power connection getting lose over time, coupled with the good luck I have had with dell laptops (3 of mine are dells) I'd highly recommend dell.

    That being said I myself haven't owned a toshiba just yet might get one just to find out of the myth of the dc power socket going bad is true and widespread or not.

    I have to agree my dell of 5 years has of yet to have a power jack repaired. But Toshiba, IBM and HP seam to need new jacks every 2 years.

    I can not complain too much laptop repairs is a nice supplemental income for me and thats the most common fix.

    On the contrary, I've had a dell with a power jack issue (this is an older latitude).

    If you want a good laptop, my recommendation is generally ASUS or Sager.

    I have both a Dell Latitue C600 and a Toshiba M400 notebook. None of them have given me any problems, except the expected replacement of batteries, adding maximum RAM, and swapped out the Hard drives, due to, space.

    I have a Toshiba and a Dell. Toshiba gets too hot to handle, whereas my Dell Studio 1535 remain ON 24x7 hours for months. Considering the extreme climate of Delhi, too hot in summers, too humid in monsoon, dust in the air all the time and Dell handling it well, I will recommend to go with Dell.

    I'd go for a Dell. They're more reliable from what I've seen.

    Don't buy Toshiba. I have their laptop Toshiba Satellite but it sucks big time. It started to give me issues in very first year of purchase like it would hang up when AC power was plugged. I got it fixed but it happened again after few months. Then I bought Dell Inspiron 15R Core i5 and its pretty awesome. Almost 1 year and no problems as of yet. You should go with dell.

    I work with latops day in and out, basicly get anything but a compaq.
    getting a replacement charger for some dells you will have to use a genuine dell charger as 3rd party chargers will not charge the battery eg I-go, coolermaster, bti

    Go for HP. #1 company in notebooks.

    If your budget is under 1k, I would look at a XPS or a HP Pavilion, both can be spec'd out for your price range and even double the power your looking to get, I would spend the extra cash for a quality laptop.

    My best experience with a laptop has been with an Acer.
    3 years turned on 24 hours a day, no-stop, and it never crashed.

    Now i've a toshiba but got few small issues.

    I would say Dell too!

    Definitely, I recommend Dell.

    Don't buy Toshiba Laptops, most of the people had bad experience with it.

    Well, you can also have a look on Sony Vaio Laptops. They are good.

    I have actually had both a Dell and Toshiba laptop.
    Right now the Toshiba is sitting in a box with a motherboard problem.
    The Dell is next to me right now working like the day I bought it.

    Dell all the way.

    I recommend for Dell. I think Toshiba can't compete with Dell. Dell is better option for me.

    Both brands are very good and even though I use Toshiba Satellite for few years, I'd say Dell is better.

    I recommend Dell, you get more "bang for your buck" and in my experience their laptops last longer.

    Also Dell makes servers and Toshiba does not.

    I am also in the favor of purchasing Dell laptops because this not only fulfill your requirements but also helps you solve many other problems related with the laptop in future. Recently I have also purchased Dell and I am fully satisfied with its performance.

    I've only heard bad things about Toshiba and very few people seam to own one, but Dell on the other hand, almost every other person has one, if they don't have an apple computer they have a Dell one, I don't know whether it's quality or if there was a big sale, but I just see that computer everywhere, like when I look back in class almost every student has a Dell computer.. I myself don't have one tho..:/
