Summary: I have a toshiba tecra 510cdt, from 1997, original battery and everything. It still works like a champ no problems, Windows 95 boots up and I'm at the desktop in under 30 seconds, but this is the only toshiba I've owned, however, so I can't speak for the newer models.
Summary: The most expensive piece of crap I ever bought TECRA S1. Died in the first week, was repaired and lasted a further 11 weeks ...Has been residing in the shed with all the useless rubbish that is accumulated over the years. Has been there for 3 years now..
Summary: I have the S3. THis one has actually been working with no problems! FIrst one... not cool! When I received the first unit, it was dead (hard drive failure within 2 days0 so it was replaced. Second one went through 3 hard drives and a motherboard!
Summary: Tecra S1 is a piece of crap according to my experience: replaced keyboard, touchpad and now also hard drive and battery need to be replaced. Not to mention the touchpad failed for the second time. Next time I'll buy a Thinkpad.
Summary: Tecra S1, top series they say... motherboard is to be replaced, hard drive is to be replaced, pointing device is to be replaced. Is this what a high-end class hardware is about? Thank you, I will switch to another manufacturer. With my DELL I have never had a single problem.

Summary: Never ever buy Toshiba again! Very bad quality, cheap construction. Repairs are a nightmare!! Every Toshiba I have ever seen has had the motherboard replaced at least once. None of the software drivers are standard.
