    I've got a offer for Imperial but 'd say Oxford. The name will carry you through life though this is just my own opinion.
    agreed!

    Anyone who actually matters in the CS world will know that Imperial's course is better.
    Most notably, employers.

    It really won't. Employers want someone who's skilled for the job, an Oxford grad might have the name of a good university on their CV, but they sure as hell better have the skills to back that up. There's only a certain number of times you can say "I went to Oxford" in a job interview.
    If you want to work in London, maybe, although I'm not certain about that either, but if you don't intend to necessarily stay and work in the UK, Oxbridge on your CV will carry you a lot further. And I mean Oxbridge don't just land the top spots on the league tables based on nothing. There's got to be a reason why Oxbridge tops Imperial in EVERY uni ranking for Computer Science...
