Which low end laptop is best for burning DVDs and watching movies?

Q: I am looking to buy a laptop. I’ve looked at the Toshiba Satellite l305-s5915 for $399.00 and am not sure what warranty is offered. I also looked at the Compaq Presario cq50-139wm notebook for $299.00. I need to burn DVD’s, do spreadsheets, PowerPoint, watch movies, download music, etc. Are this adequate?
