5 out of 5 eggsHidden Gem!

Comments: Summary: This notebook is a near-perfect blend of price, performance, & flexibility.

It's not flashy or bloated with bleeding-edge tech, but it's head & shoulders above over comparable off-the-shelf systems and packed with the necessities other models forget.

Ups: Standard aspect 15 in. screen (i prefer over widescreens that just eat up more footprint for no benefit); has all the ports+some (highlights: serial-for older GPS!, parallel-just in case?, FireWire-hey some don't, et al); "Nubby" pointer+Trackpad=flexibility; DEDICATED VIDEO! (if "only" 64MB) so I can play GTA3 & Star Wars Republic Commando at the native 1024x768 res. (Far Cry demo proved the limits though); mine had the 512MB of RAM in just 1 SODIMM allowing easy upgrade to 1.5GB, though some reportedly have 256x2; wireless performs well; Gigabit NIC, modem, & VGA out back where they should be; volume dial, IR, wireless power switch all on front; Windows XP Pro; Standby & Hibernate function flawlessly; 5400rpm HD; really no major Cons for me, but...

Downs: all USB ports (3) are on the right, which eats into the space for right-handed mousing just a bit (wish 1 or 2 were on back); no DVD burner (oh well); no Bluetooth; Toshiba ConfigFree is user-friendly, but a little annoying for this power user/me-easy to disable (better to use Intel app for wireless); accepts bunch of Flash cards (w/o adapter) EXCEPT CompactFlash; DVD upgrade is $$$ =(; 6-cell battery provides just "acceptable" battery life

I was fortunate to catch this with a good instant savings AND mail-in rebate, but even at regular price, it's a superior value. The only true caveat is the lack of a DVD burner.

Comments: First off, newegg did it again! I got this delivered in just 2 days. So far the notebook has been great. One of the main reasons I bought this was for the "eraser" type pointer which are hard to find, but the quality of the construction and finish of the notebook really stands out. I was surprised to find out that the 512 MB of RAM was one chip instead of two, making it easy to upgrade to 1GB. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a professional looking, high performance notebook.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat notebook

Comments: Great notebook. Smooth, fast, and quiet. Much easier to use with an optical mouse. Toshiba has great quality control and they stand behind their products. I should know. I do warranty repair on them.
