My mate is looking to buy a laptop and he's narrowed it down to these two options. Please advise as to which is the better option.
The use of the laptop is for basic word processing, web browsing and watching DVD's.
Note: there is a free upgarde to a Core 2 Duo T9300 processor if purchased online.
Toshiba - TOS7858 RRP - $2199
I have a friend working at a Electrical retail store who can give this laptop to me for $1799

I would have thought the Toshiba at that price would be the better way to go, please let me know what you think.
