Summary: I got my toshiba satellite from argos, and I have to say it has been a little disappointing. Firstly it is not very portable as a laptop. I used it everyday taking it to university to take notes in lectures, and couldn't help but find it was a little too heavy, and bulky. Couple this with the fact it had a battery life of nearly 2 hours, I had to carry the charger everywhere I went, and had to always sit near a plug in the wall to charge it as I went.
Summary: Very disappointed in this model. Battery is completely dead after 1.5 years. Problems with hard drive and screen keeps disappearing. Lasted just outside warranty and then went kaput. I wouldn't touch a Toshiba again with a barge pole.
