The Lenovo is $599. The Gateway is $599 in the circular I see on the Best Buy site, and $629 according to the list here. Either way, it sounds like the Gateway is the best bet. I wasn't sure about the Intel vs. AMD processor - good to hear that the AMD is better. And I'm thrilled about 250g of HD space!
Thanks for your help!
Yeah, Intel has a lot of marketing money, and AMD not very much, so like Nike vs New Balance, many people assume Nike is better, but also being into healthcare I can tell you that Nike just advertises more, many New Balance shoes costing a lot less are just as good if not better for your foot. Same goes w/ AMD and Intel.
They both make some good and some not so hot products, Intel just advertises all of theirs more.
