Notebook Questing - WMC

Hey I am in the market for a Multimedia Notebook at the moment your help is appriciated

I have been looking at the

HP zd8080us
Toshiba Qosmio G15

Question
I have been told that P4 is a better work horse than the PM?
PM x 1.6 = P4?


Right now I am leaning more toward the HP cause I like that it has the Number pad with the keyboard (I am an Estimator and use allot of numbers)
but the Qosmio has a built in TV Tuner

What I want
- Windows Media Center XP 2005
- 17" Wide Screen
- at least 1000 MB Ram


Thanks for your help

Hopefully you'll never need to have the HP serviced.

You're an idiot if you don't get a Powerbook or iBook



Personally, I'd go for the Toshiba...very solid laptops in my experience.

Thumbs down for HP

You can get a dedicated USB number pad for $15 or so...

Go with the Tosh. Mine's been rock solid.

The P4m is a good processor. It's a step up from the Centrino, but below desktop. Great processor nonetheless, we have a few laptops with them and they're pretty powerful.
