Summary: Hard drive failure after 2 mos of use. It did not come with a backup disc. It took 10 days to receive one by mail. The over all laptop is nice. free features. Just be sure to make that disk as soon as the system boot up.. Well 24 hours of updating when connected first time.
Summary: Toshiba Satellite P305-S8904 17.0-Inch Laptop This is a great laptop for all my mobile computing needs. The Vista Home Premium allows me to run my local IIS Web Server, ColdFusion 8 Application Server, and Microsoft 2005 Express without any lag.
Summary: Received my 17" screen laptop as promised. All seemed well until the 2nd week when encountered many problems. Admittedly there was almost an entire day working with techs from my local ISP to Toshiba who finally told me to return the unit for a new one. Called Amazon & had a new one within 3 days!
Summary: If you are looking for a widescreen laptop, this Satellite has everything you want and doesn't give you things you don't want for the money. I had an HP and I won't ever go back. I love the fact that you get the (64 bit) version of Vista, that is the only way to get the true benefits of 4gb of ram...
