It's too big, too bendy and my outlook is that you would be lucky for it to last 2 years given it's build. The reason why bendy is bad has been discussed but I think it's worth noting again by writing "Pb free means lower ductile strength."
Your selected Tosh is a very nice i3 16 inch machine. At the edge of what many accept to be a machine for mobile use (ie students) but no doubt I will pick this over the dv7.
PS. We own a dv7 that is used as a desktop. It is not a laptop.
Hello, I'm a 26 year old student and I decided to purchase a laptop. I purchased a Toshiba A665-S6086 laptop and so far I love it for the two days I have owned it. I was also looking at a HP dv7-4165dx laptop as well. I mainly use a computer for internet searching and school work which consists of using word, excel and powerpoint. My question is, has anyone had good and or bad luck with a Toshiba? I have only owned HP and I thought I would give Toshiba a shot. Also, they offered me an extended warranty and declined it. Stupid of me to do? Thanks everyone!
