"Toshiba Satellite Pro A120"

I bought this laptop the begging of this year. I not sure what I can really say about this machine. Its simple to use. I have had no problems with it.

When I bought it I had the option to purchase the Vista upgrade discs, I only installed this a few months ago, the process was simply and easy to do.

The laptop, has a good crisp screen, it has a standard keyboard, with a touch screen mouse pad, although I use a standard USB mouse.

On the front are various lights to show when the wireless network is enabled, when the batytery is on charge, and when the hard disc is in use.

It has a volume control knobb on the front, with head phones and microphone sockets.

The battery lasts for quite a few hours although I mainly use mine plugged into the mains.

A very good and at the time was priced well, Toshiba has a good support website and advises me when new drivers are availble.

    Solid recommendation but like Expired-Account more information would enhance. Please let me know if you do update.

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite laptop in 2002, and it is still working now, despite almost daily use (and a lot of knocks) in the intervening years. It has proved itself to be robust and excellent vlaue for money. When the time comes to buy another laptop, I think it would take a lot to get me to change brands!
