I'd put the $300 into faster HDD/more RAM (probably in that order, but it'd depend on how I intended to use the computer). If you've got $300 left AFTER maxing out the RAM/HDD, then (to me) it'd be again a matter of how I intended to use the computer. Would you need to use it away from a power source for long periods of time? For example, I find that programming on long plane trips makes the time go by much more quickly, so I like to have a small PC with excellent battery life for that kind of thing. For a laptop that'll mostly live in my office, I'd go for brute power and damn the battery life, full speed ahead.
