4 of the last 9 Toshiba laptops that I've purchased for people in the last 3 years have had bad keyboards. Two had one or more keys did not work from day one. The other two had failures w/in the first few months... but I like the features per dollar. Sadly this malady is not limited to the low end Toshiba line, I've seen it in the Qosmio line too.

Maybe they've got that fixed by now.

Both laptops are pretty good, so it really depends on what you want to do with them, but I would personally go for the Asus in this case, mainly because of the fact that it has higher specs for a lower price.

As far as I know, Asus also usually has a much better quality than Toshiba, at least from my experience (mainly bad with Toshiba, and extremely good with Asus (both my laptops being Asus, one being 4.5 years old, the other one (G53) just a few months old).

I second that. Or you can get a Gateway, Asus's top of the line models. I got a gateway nv51b and couldnt be happier.

I don't know where you got Gateway being Asus's top of the line, as far as I know, and the google search I just did to confirm, Gateway is a completely other company. Also I've never seen a good quality Gateway, personally.

Thing is, LCD is still pretty good imo. We don't need the best screens out there, the average user doesn't see the difference between the screens. For example my G53 has a very good quality 1920x1080 screen with a very good image, even if it is lcd.

according to gold old wikipedia, Gateway is owned by Acer, not Asus, since 2007.
