I am looking into buying a good Laptop Computer. I am looking at two laptops one from Dell and one from HP. The HP is an incredible deal and is $140 cheaper than the Dell. I think the specs are pretty similar. I would appreciate some opinions on what the better Laptop is and why? What about overheating, as I hear this complaint all the time with high end Notebooks? Thanks in Advance ( Info on the two laptops is Below).

My HP over heated and died within a year! My dell on the other hand plugged on for three years without a problem. I don't know that much about computers though, so I can't help beyond that.
