Summary: A great value for the price, this laptop is a gem in the vintage computing world. Not only do you have an amazingly-precise pressure-sensitive wacom painting device on your screen, but the screen itself is extremely high resolution and beautiful, despite the off-white beigish glow of 9 year old faded backlights. If you are a digital artist, then you probably already know how expensive it can be to obtain a wacom tablet embedded into a computer screen.
Summary: I bought this computer in the fall of 2005 for school. I am writing a review for this laptop in 2013 on the same portege. Of course over the years I had to put a new HDD and a new power supply (twice) but this computer is a trooper. It has been dropped, stepped on and all sorts of abuse. What I LOVE about this laptop is the high resolution, yet small, screen.
Summary: I purchased this used laptop for a bit over $200 bucks. I wasn't expecting much. My Motion Tablet died and I needed a replacement. I had purchased the newest cutting edge Asus tablet and was sadly disappointed. This was a "what the hell" purchase and I am DELIGHTED!! The laptop is in excellent condition and what's more it does everything I wanted! Even though it uses Windows XP, I can surf and shop and chat and write letters and balance the checkbook.
Summary: Remarkable engineering and often helpful in watering plants. I was able to run Windows 3.0 flawlessly. Remarkable, quite remarkable. It has worked consistently when used under extreme weather conditions (hail, snow, sub-Saharan desert).
Summary: This tablet is piece of Junk..... It does not have 1.5 mhz, 40GB hard drive and 5400 RPM, instead it has zero speed. I purchased this as a gift and I am so embarrassed. This was a Bait-and-Switch, which is illegal in United States. I am very disappointed in Amazon, this is the third item I purchased from Amazon that was not as advertised.
Summary: I purchased a toshiba tablet for school. It was the worst computer purchase I have ever made. If I could I would give less than 1 star. My computer was less than a month old and the hard drive died. I purchased an extended warranty so I called to have it repaired. Toshiba then proceded to tell me that they could replace the hard drive at a repair location but I would have to purchase an OS through them to have reinstalled on my new hard drive.
Summary: Here is a warning about Toshiba's warranty. You cannot count on them fixing anything under the warranty. My connection between the AC adapter to the computer became faulty. They considered this issue due to customer abuse. And their customer relations department is useless. An HP computer had the exact same issue and it was repaired free of charge. So buy any Toshiba computer with caution!
Summary: I got my M200 several months ago and am very satisfied with it. However, I use it less than I had anticipated, so I only gave it 4 stars. Common Tablet Features - neat, but not much used. I enjoy taking notes in different colored pens, with the ability to erase notes written in "pen" and to add space between lines already written. I use the Journal and the pen for to-do items or short lists. For longer documents, I prefer to type.
A breakthrough technology, sign of things to come.

Summary: This thing is amazing. Since I got it a month ago I no longer touch either of my desktops and I nearly stopped using paper (I mean, to write on!). Superb 1400x1050 resolution exceeds anything you find useable on a desktop monitor. The tablet mode is great, too, with high resolution, intuitive interface and a comfortable pen. I write equations a lot, which is basically impossible with just a keyboard and a mouse, so the tablet mode is very handy.
Summary: I love mine! it works great my only problem is that it has to have an external cd drive, otherwise it is amazing. As a student ai use it to take notes which i can later convert into text, to make nice, neat, and readable notes.
