Battle of the Under $600 Notebooks!

Which of the following is the best to get?
I just graduated from college and have very little money, but I am going overseas in September for a year and giving my old desktop to my sister who is going to college.
So, the contenders!
1. Toshiba Satellite A85-S1072
Intel Celeron M Processor 360J, 400MHz frontside bus, 1MB L2 cache and 1.4GHz processor, 256MB PC2700 DDR SDRAM expandable to 1.25GB, 40GB HD, 15-inch XGA TFT, 8X DVD / 24X24X24 CD-RW, XP Home.
Price: $499.99 this week at Compusa after savings/rebates.
This notebook is also on sale at Best Buy: $449.99 this week after savings/rebates.
2. ACER Mobile AMD Sempron 3000+1.8GHz
DVD-CD-RW - 512MB DDR-DRAM - Built-in 802.11g wireless - 15'' display
Price: $549.99 this week at Circuit City after savings/rebates.
I am personally leaning towards the second because of the 1.8ghz, but I am unsure about ACER & Semprons...
Please feel free to add any other laptop deals around this price range that are comparable/superior in quality!
