Excerpt: I have owned a Toshiba Satelite Pro for over three years now and on the whole am very happy with the machine. There is however a caveat with my recommendation. The design boys at Toshiba made one glaring mistake by placing the cooling vent for the processor on the underside of the laptop. as a result the laptop will gets very hot, the fan is constantly working at near maximum and is noisy. Eventually, the machine will get too hot and close down.
Excerpt: This laptop is quite good at simple tasks, but really falls flat on its face when it comes to speed, and games. It uses accelerated graphics, which really slow down graphics performance. This problem can be solved however! All you need to do is add a 512mb stick of RAM, it's that simple! A 512mb stick of RAM means less slowdown, and better performance, and you can install it yourself in 2 minutes flat!
Excerpt: I own a toshiba laptop and I know several people who do too. In general, toshiba laptops are among the best laptops out there. There is a big problem with them though. After about 5 months, the computer faces a total shut down for no reason, for example the computer will just die and you will have to turn it back on again. Similarly, there is a problem with the power supply in that the power supply goes randomly too.
Excerpt: When my first PC failed i decided to replace it with a laptop in order to fit in with changes in my circumstances. After some breif research i chose this laptop, as it seemed to suit my needs and was good value for money. I've now had the laptop for nearly a year (11months). Even though it is relatively low spec it is adequate for my needs and there's the option to add more memory or buy a bigger hard drive whe you order or as i did add memory myself.
Pros: Great value, light, stays cool and looks professional .
Cons: Some may prefer more storage space, no seperate number pad .
Excerpt: I have owned a Toshiba A10 for over a year now and I am using it right now to write this review. I ordered it direct from Toshiba for around £650 and I received it the next day. I opened the packaging and like many computers the software was preinstalled. Meaning I only had to switch it on and I could start using my laptop right away. It comes supplied with a external floppy drive which is worth £40 from PC-world, a modem cable, power cable, backup disks and manuals.
Excerpt: I have had this laptop for two years now and have not had a major problem with it as of yet. The makers of the laptop have made it very secure and have made it runs tests when it starts up if there was a problem detected. It downloads music prety quickly although that may have something to do wiuth the connection. I have set it up with a pinter on the wireless network and it works brilliantly.
Pros: Pretty quick and very compatable with the internet . Good as a network computer
Excerpt: I've had my Toshiba laptop for around 1 year now, I'm at university, and it has proven to be a Godsend for me. I only intended to purchase a fairly cheap laptop for educational purposes (really!), but this one was on offer through a Toshiba program available through the university. The model I bought didn't come with a CD/RW, but everything else mentioned in the specs provided is the same, and I haven't had a moments hassle with it at all.
Excerpt: My first disappointment came when i took my 'ultra portable' Toshiba satellite a10 pro out of it's packaging, to dicover just how big and bulky it really ia! (to say nothing of excess weight - it REALLY needs to go on a diet). As a desktop replacement (which is what i have ended up using mine as) it is a superb system, with all the power you could use, plus a lot more, however it dosen't really cut it as a business portable which is what it was designed as.
