Battle of the $450 laptops!!

So, I can get a HP ProBook 4530s 15.6" i3 2310M 4GB DD3 320GB HDD 7200rpm or a Dell 14R 14" i3-2330M 4GB DDR3 640GB Serial ATA hard drive (5400 rpm) both for $450..

Uses are for school work and watching/streaming videos. Mobility is a big factor as well, as I commute from school from home. The Dell has a faster processor I believe, and more HDD space..but the HP has a faster HD. Just not sure which I should get, what do you experts think?

To be honest with you I would go with a similar Toshiba to the one the guy in the other thread had over either of these. Just my 2 cents though. It's hard to say which I would pick between either because I definitely don't like HP or lower end dell. If I were looking for quality lower end it would be Toshiba.

Go with the ProBook. The difference in processor speed is negligible, and ProBooks (being part of HP's enterprise line-up) are much better in quality than the Dell.
