Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024 review: Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024

Toshiba backs the Satellite P105 with a typical one-year warranty with return-to-depot service. The company's toll-free tech support line is available to you around the clock during that period. Extending coverage to three years costs $149, and upgrades to onsite service are available. Online support is always free, though we wish Toshiba's support Web site offered the ability to chat in real time with a support rep.
