    the hp, it has a better processor, and a slightly better gfx, maybe just as good gfx.

    EDIT: how much money do you have for this? dell has some nice 15.4" laptops out now. (yeah....i said that, lol)

    ohh in store is...yuck. when i bought my laptop i went to the dell kisok in the mall closest to us. anyways...i ended up with dell because the price for the laptop was just to damn good. (can you say 30% off coupons) anyways, now they actually have decent notebooks based on santa rosa and 8x00 cards....im so mad they couldn't offer mid range cards in my laptop :banghead:

    EDIT: if you really have to go with those two laptops....get the hp, it's better as i've said before, and those hp's look damn sexy.
