for $399, and you don't even have to mess with rebates.
Here's the link:
I've never used a laptop before, so I don't know if this is any good
or not. I basically want the laptop for web surfing, email,
reading newsgroups, and video chat, but all the heavy-duty stuff will
continue to be done on my desktop. The whole point of getting the
laptop is mobility, so the wireless has to work well.
The ad says it's Vista capable (it comes with MCE), but I don't
really care about that.
So to those of you who know about laptops, my question is whether
this looks like a good deal, and also whether I'm likely to find a
better deal in the near future for one of these "dead-end" laptops (I
mean one that as a practical matter you probably wouldn't be able to
upgrade to Vista).
Any opinions and suggestions would be appreciated.
Re: Toshiba L35-S2174 - is this a good computer? a good deal?
an M115 or an A105 (but not a model of either with a Celeron processor)
is a better value. M115's have been available for $599 in some pretty
decent configurations with Core Duo processors and DVD burners.
