Both of those notebooks are good choices especially for the price, but if you're going to be taking it everywhere, keep in mind that neither are the lightest or thinnest laptops out there. I haven't had good experiences with Dell, so I'd be more inclined to the Series 3...but I'm sure either would be fine.
