"Toshiba Satellite Pro A100 Review"

My Toshiba Satellite Pro A100 Review.
Generally a great all rounder. The wide screen HD TFT display is clear & crisp with a soft matt finish to minimise screen glare. The A100 is fully loaded with WIFi, Bluetooth, 4 usb ports & boasts quality harman/kardon built in speakers.
All Hardware is backed up by a great host of top end programs to really get the best out of your projects....
Toshiba have supplied a host of additional system tools to improve the performace & life of this great laptop/note book.
So far the A100 has turned out to be the best pc/laptop ive used & generally does not dissapoint.....
Overall i give the Toshiba A100 Satellite Pro a 94% rating!
