Summary: My Sony 19-inch "small-footprint" monster died and I needed a budget machine for work. I like this because it's a Toshiba, it's light, has a rubberized keyboard, and green accents. It was a bargain at Best Buy. The downside was Net Nanny (now uninstalled); the mousepad is a little jumpy and random; and the speakers are horrible. Headphones are definitely necessary. This little laptop works for now.
