HP make good laptops, remember they use alot of similar components to make their machines work, the ram, processor and drives, are usually manufactured by the same company, or at least very similarly made. The choice really comes down to the motherboard, and the various ports on the laptop, just remember that 1 gig of ram isn't going to see vista really run, so opt for xp if you can, if you get 2 gigs, vista is fine. The choice is yours, but ultimately you need to decide what you'll be doing with it, and base your choice on that. It does seem though that dell has a more solid, reliable architechture than hp. Hope that helps!

Dell 1721


Hi Tom,
The Inspiron 1720 &1721 series was released more than a year ago and is no longer available new, only refurbished. The comparbable machines currently on the market is the Inspiron 1525 & 1526 series. The 1525 &1526 series are comparable in price and specs, and the specs are a little better as far as graphics and sound cards. The 1730 series is still available, but it has a price of approx $2500. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
