Toshiba Portege R600-ST520W review: Toshiba Portege R600-ST520W

The R600 ran for an impressive 5 hours and 8 minutes on our video playback battery drain test, using the included six-cell battery. Because our drain test is especially grueling, you can expect longer life from casual Web surfing and office use.

Toshiba includes a three-year, parts-and-labor warranty with the system--fairly standard for business systems. The battery is only covered for a year, though. Support is accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line, plus there's online support via the Toshiba Web site. Service can be done by mailing the system into the Toshiba Depot or carry-in warranty service via authorized service providers.
