i really like it, it does everything i need. though it does piss me off that i found an Emachines for almost half the price with all the same specs and hardware, except the Emachines had 1 gb less memory.
I have a Toshiba right now that is 3 years old, I dont use it for much but work files and internet but I havent had a problem. I do de-frag and use AVG free but it still works for me. I have bought my wife 2 new laptops since I bought mine and I keep wanting a new one but all I did was upgrade my memory and I cant justify buying a new one yet.
Just be aware that Toshiba's are a tad heavier than most and the screen size you're looking at is going to be a heavy laptop, especially if it has a 12 cell battery.
I prefer HP and Sony Vaio, but Toshiba makes some good laptops. All brands will have a model# that is a dud. The one thing I don't like about the new Toshiba's is the weight and the texture of the keyboard keys. All my laptops are 15.6" wide screen and 6 cell batteries. I just don't like heavy ass laptops. A friend of mine has a 17" Toshiba with a 12 cell battery. Too heavy to be practical in my opinion. Not to mention it had a AMD x2 core and it ran very hot.
it was not a problem to bring money to his house at 10pm.so why is it a problem to call and bitch.it wasnt a problem when we were all sitting around smoking pot together.yes i said it we all were smoking pot together.what now stupid.
I'm on a toshiba netbook right now. liked it a LOT more than the mini10 and the other (asus maybe?) that was in the price/spec range.
walked outta best buy for like 380 with it. added a gig of ram and it's gravy. the speakers are junk, but i don't plan on using them much - headphones are just fine with me. oh and it came with a 6 cell battery stock - i've seen anywhere from 7 to 9 hours of use without needing a charge.
I bought one last November and haven't had any problems with it at all. It's got Windows 7 which I like a lot...I forget the hard drive size, but it's over 300g with 4g RAM. It's a damn good machine IMO.
