I would still go for the silver Asus. Mainly because I like the manufacturer. My motherboard/graphics card and laptop are all Asus.
Thanks... The ASUS machine was out of stock with no expected ship date at this time... I didn't want to wait any longer so I went for the HP ProBook 4540s C6Z37UT (Intel i5 uP)... TigerDirect had it for a good price... Hopefully I made an OK decision...--
Go Mark Martin!
