I have had a Toshiba laptop for about 2 months now.
I have had no trouble with it (apart from the usual Vista problems)
The design is sleek and lightweight and looks great, and the screen is big enough to watch a DVD on comfortably.
The battery lasts for ages and gives you pleanty of warning if it is getting low.
Downloading is quick and easy and installing software is straightforward.
I love this laptop and would reccomend it to anyone.
