1 out of 5 eggsScreen died right after warranty ended

Pros: Everything worked fine and performed well for the specs at the time.

Cons: About 6 months in, still under warranty, I had to get the whole MB replaced. No cost to me, though. About 1 month after the warranty expired the screen started flickering and eventually went black. The laptop still functions fine when connected to an external monitor but then its not really portable, is it?

Other Thoughts: Upgraded RAM to 4GB and OS to Windows 7. Worked great until its death.

Pros: This computer had everything. Pretty good RAM, fast computer, and a nice glossy finish. Also the price is sooo low its amazing.

Cons: Theres only 2 bad things about this computer:

1) Theres alot of crapware on this computer to start but its not a big deal.

2) FINGERPRINTS!!! The glossy finish attracts those unwanted fingerprints.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop / XP Fixes

Pros: Great price, sleek and smooth design, and of course New Egg. The built in HDMI slot for hooking it up to a great wide screen TV is nice. Decent RAM and Hard drive size but you get what you pay for. Also, the recovery is super easy when you use the recovery discs that come with the laptop. Awesome tool

Cons: Windows Vista!

Other Thoughts: When rolling back to XP SP2 I ran into some major issues with the drivers. They were all compatible with Vista only. Luckily, I found this great website bscottech.com that had the fix all in one shot. Took me 5 minutes after I had everything.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Its a good deal, bang for your buck. Responsive, nice screen, cool textured mouse pad. The heat exaust it out the sides which helps to keep the unit cool. Solid look and feel.

Cons: First one out of the box was bad. The touch pad was completely DOA. Returned it to vendor and 2nd unit functions as expected. Power plugs into the back which I don't care much for. Not a big fan of Vista Home Pro. To boot there is no way to do a clean OS install. The lights on the unit are sort of offensive. Thats all :)

Other Thoughts: Despite its short comings this system does what its supposed to for the price. I reoladed with Vista Ultimate and all is well. Quality components such as the Intel Wireles card and bright crisp screen make this a good buy.

4 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck

Pros: Light, sharp looking, crisp screen and runs cool. Built in web cam works well for video and stills and the speakers put out slightly above average sound for a laptop. Performance is to be expected from the gear it comes loaded with and given the price, it's an A+ buy.

Cons: Comes packed with Vista and the restore CD (while it works - ran it once upon open for trial) is pre-loaded with Toshiba's bloatware. No way to wipe the machine and do a clean load of Vista with the provided disks. The high sheen surfaces are exceptional to look at but be ready to see smudges and fingerprints all over it as soon as you touch it. If you are a neat freak or can't stand seeing fingerprints on something like a stainless steel appliance then steer clear.

Other Thoughts: I have rolled this back to XP pro and it runs like a top. The price far outweighs any negatives that may be associated with it. I am using this for my onsite consultations with clients so the sharp look is something i was going for but the smudges and prints all over sort of negate that effect. It's nit-picky i know but that combined with Vista and the bloatware knock it down to a 4.
