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...

I bought this book after searching the web for the cheapest laptops around. This came up as the cheapest anywhere apart from EuroSimm. Dabs stock it for a minute £488 + VAT (£573 inc. VAT). This makes it a very affordable budget machine. I wasn't expecting too much of it at that price, but was...

“Toshiba Satelite Pro”

ProReliable, solid machine

ConsOverheats! Beware

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...

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...

ProGood screen

ConsSlow

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...

ConsWeight

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!

ProQuality is reasonably good

Consmajor defect in many models

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...
