Best Buy of the YEAR

TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite L305-S5921 Intel Pentium dual-core T3400 (2.16 GHz) 2 GB Memory 160 GB HDD Intel GMA 4500M 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium
TOSHIBA Laptop Satellite L305-S5921 Intel Pentium dual-core T3400 (2.16 GHz) 2 GB Memory 160 GB HDD Intel GMA 4500M 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium

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!

Horrible Drive

Maxtor OneTouch III TURBO EDITION C01W015 (STM315004OTAB06-RK) 1.5TB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache USB 2.0 / IEEE 1394a / 1394b External Hard Drive
Maxtor OneTouch III TURBO EDITION C01W015 (STM315004OTAB06-RK) 1.5TB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache USB 2.0 / IEEE 1394a / 1394b External Hard Drive

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!
