Of these two laptops available at Costco, should I go for the Dell
, the Toshiba
, or some other one available there?

I'm really unable to figure out which of these is best for my needs. I use it as a desktop replacement, and rarely need to transport it much, so size isn't an issue, though of course smaller is better. I tend to keep my computers for 4 or more years, so I'd like something that will last. I have used Dell almost exclusively and have been happy with them; I did test out the keyboard on the Toshiba and am fine with it. I use computers for internet stuff, watching videos (quite a lot, mostly while in my bed), and some gaming.
I won't buy an HP, and am uninterested in getting a Mac. These two points are not up for debate. I am willing to purchase elsewhere or from a different maker if prices are comparable. 1300 is about my top price: note that this includes 2 years warranty at Costco, which has historically been good for warranty service. I do not think I need more than 2 years.
I am located in Montreal.
