I have a choice of getting a Dell Inspiron 17R. The first spec is Intel core i3-380m processor 4gb RAM and 640 HD. Blue Ray Combo Drive. Web Cam etc. The second one is Dell Inspiron 17R the same computer except for a few things. Intel Core i3-231M which has a 1/2 second slower processor yet has 6GB RAM and 500 HD. Also with a 8x DVD dual what ever that means. There really both the same yet a few features. There both the same price. What one should I get. The second one has HD yet says nothing about Blue Ray yet the first on does. Both have same pixels. Please help me here. Oh one more than the second one has a 2 year warranty vs a 1 year.

If I were you, I'd go for the first one as it has Blueray and bigger hard drive capacity.
But it still depends on how you use the computer.

I just really search the internet. I suppose I Am looking for speed more then anything. Wouldn't the larger RAM on the second one perform faster. Also what is this combo DVD vs 8x Dual DVD. Why can't Dell make It simple and just keep all the feature the same. So HD would not except Blue Ray. Please help as this computer is $700.00. Way overpriced to me that is.

The first one should do because the processor is faster and their is bluray drive. 4GB of ram is plenty, it is not necessary to have 6GB of ram.
