The only thing you are doing is making the laptop (which was never designed to drive a nearly 19 inch screen as the one you where looking at) work harder then it should shorting the battery life and the life of the computer its self. The HP Pro Books have great driver and firmwear suport and the hardware inside them is great. As you can get a 4GB * 2 DDR 3 set on newegg for $79.99 on sale. All I say is that save your money and buy something that will last. Also be sure if you want 8gb of ram that the Pro book if you choose so is a 64 bit os which both these are.

Thanks for the information. Both of these computers look great, but I've never used 64bit how is the compatibility with programs?



Is it a big change from 32bit?
