Well I think that is the most important thing for gaming... They look both the same so I would suggest go for Toshiba because it's cheaper and a 8550G should do fine for gaming. I have an HP and I tell you it is nothing special. Just the name for 170$ more (unless it has a way better graphic card).

They look about the same, but I am not a huge fan of Toshiba, I have a had overheating problems in the past with their laptops.

I have had my 855 for two years, it has a ton of hour as I have been home sick during that time no issues what soever.

Take HP. I've got one since 6-7 months. Buy SSD hard later on and you are ready to go.
