Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration i orderd the 2510 last week from compusa and like anything else ive ordered from them.. they messd up the order... so now im at a unique situation to change my mind and im tossing up the m700 and the 2510....my biggest concern is build quality... i know my previous toshiba laptops have lasted forever.( 10 years plus) my hp desktop only got about 5 years, with the keyboard and mouse dieing the first year. i konw that these are both well out of warenty rangesfor both and by todays standards a very long time to own electronics... would i be best with the toshiba or the hp. i know the build on the toshiba is better buyt is the performance of the hp that much better for the same price range. im sure the toshiba the factory warrenty wil be fine but i have a feeling i should probly purchase the 3year adp warenty if i go hp..
