Which computer should I pick? DESKTOP + LAPTOP

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey so in the process of selling my iPad, someone offered a trade for one or the other of his computers. One is

A laptop (Dell Vostro 3700)

Specs: DVD Drive
6gb 1333 ddr3 ram
bluetooth
500GB hard drive
windows 7 pro
17.3" 1600x900.
i7 Q720, nvidia gefore 330m 1gb video card.

Vs

A desktop (ASUS All In One. Don't know what model it is)

i5-650 3.20GHz
6 GB DDR3
1TB HDD
Blu-ray ROM, DVD Burner
23.6" Touchscreen 1920x1080
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
1GB GeForce 310M

Of course, I'm going to sell them as soon as I get them. So, which one is the better one for resale value? If I do decide to keep them, which one should I keep? BTW I already have an Asus G72Gx with better specs than the laptop except for the DDR3 and the i7.

And if anyone's interested in either or, let me know

This looks like the Asus http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-056-_-Product. I'd go with that one, but I would check the quality of it first. The dell, on the other hand, looks like it retailes for ~$600, which would lead me to wonder why the difference in price between the two. What version iPad do you have?

I was thinking of going with the desktop too but everyone else tells me to go with the laptop for some reason. Thanks nuke, I think I'm going to go with the Asus then. Guess I'll leave it folding 24/7 until I can find a buyer for it hahaha.

The iPad is a 3G 32GB version.

and yes, some IS lacking reading comprehension.

REP+ to both of you!
