We have far too many Dells, then a collection of Compaqs, IBMs, and a few others. And very few issues.
Toshiba came onto the radar screen as avoid since they seem to have forgotten basic ESD (electro static discharge) issues. This is not a new issue as we watched PalmOne on their model m500 a few years back forget as well.
While Toshiba is retrofitting and relearning my comment is to let them relearn but not at your expense. They will support their hardware but why bother with them at all today? There is a lot of great laptops out them. Just stick with the names.
Only those new to the laptop scene will mention the off mainstream names since they haven't learned why.
Hello Moderators and All
I myself moderate a few other Message Boards...
Therefore, I understand that the ''Moderators'' and ?Members? who often visit the message board have a very good overview and understanding of the Forum's topic (Notebooks), and the general opinions made by the many people who post. Because of this I am coming to you with my question.
About myself, I have a life threatening illness I am a disabled father of a wonderful daughter (4.3-GPA) who is graduating from High School and will be attending a 4 year University this fall (thank God for Scholarships).
For a graduation gift we will be buying her a Laptop Computer. Being that we are quite economically challenged (poor), this purchase is a major purchase for us and I truly seek your informed advice on this purchase. I have read back as far as page 9 and I am quite overwhelmed with all the information.
I was considering the Toshiba M45-S331 but after reading through many posts and a comment made by the Moderator ?R. Proffitt / Avoid till 2006, I fear I would regret this purchase.
Therefore, my question: What would be a good reliable laptop for under $1,500.
I?m asking for specific Name Brands and Models that you would suggest.
(Note: My daughter is not a gamer.)
I truly need your help on this and I thank you in advance for your advice!
