Hi! So I'm stuck between purchasing one of these two laptops and was hoping someone could point out a general direction I could take with this. I don't recall all the specs on both the laptops, but they were super close to each other besides these few things:

Laptop #1:
~$1050(After I did some math in my head with taxes and such)
-750gb hardrive
-i7 2.4 GHz
- HAS a disk drive

Laptop #2:
- 1tb hardrive
- Backlit keyboard
-i5 2.6 Ghz
- DOESN'T have a disk drive

^ The cost of this above laptop includes buying a portable disk drive, since I'd need one. Also, both laptops are of the HP brand, if that matters.

I don't know too much about laptops, but assuming the rest of the specs balance out, what would you go with?

Thanks for the help!

Why...would you want a laptop without an optical drive?


Sure you can use externally-connected devices...but why involve one more piece of equipment in the "potential problems" groupd than you have to?


I would place more emphasis on how many RAM modules can be installed...and how much RAM comes preinstalled...than I would care about hard drive size.
