Best Buy of the YEAR
Pros: Amazing Laptop! FAST! Vista experience index rates close in most catagories to a laptop I payed $1,800 for a couple of months ago. Had ordered compairable laptops from dell on 4/6/09 and was given a delivery date of 4/23/09. I had to have two new laptops for a job by 4/17/09. On 4/14/09 I canceled my dell order and ordered two of these toshibas. They came TWO day's later (AWSOME NEWEGG)!
Cons: No major cons when you consider the price. Screen is a little weak if your looking at it as a desktop replacement. Wxga is only 1280 X 800, but it does make it easy to read text because it's larger. Would also be nice if Toshiba included recovery disks...you just have to remember to create a set as soon as you get it (They have a nice little tool to do that) Battery life isn't great, however Toshiba has a 9-cell for it you can get that should give you upwards of 4 hours.
Overall Review: The 2.1 dual core performs every bit as good as a 1.8 core 2 duo. Toshiba has made XP drivers easy to find for it if you need to revert back to XP. So far...I'm VERY impressed. GREAT BUY!
Pros: Was a nice big drive BEFORE IT FAILED!
Cons: This is my 3rd unit. 1st One Touch developed errors after about 2 months of use. 2nd drive (1st replacement) came with issues. 3rd drive lasted about a year and 1/2, now DEAD! I'm going to have to pay Maxtor to try and recover data. THESE ARE HORRIABLE DRIVES - DO NOT BUY!
