I got a email this morning from a friend of mind asking what I thought of this Toshiba laptop at Best Buy for under $400. I took a look at the unit and for what he wants to do, mainly surfing and email, found it to be satisfactory. I know. It is a light weight PC, but it does have a 15.4 screen and DVD burner as well as wireless. I’m not sure how long this sale will last so you best hurry if you are looking for an inexpensive laptop system.
On the Best Buy site they describe the unit as:
Surf the Web at Wi-Fi hotspots or exchange data with other network users quickly and easily with this versatile notebook that features high-speed wireless LAN. The double-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW drive lets you archive important data and watch or record your favorite DVD movies.
- Intel® Celeron® M processor 520 with 533MHz frontside bus, 1MB L2 cache and 1.6GHz processor speed
- 512MB DDR2 SDRAM for multitasking power, expandable to 2GB
- Multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support records up to 8.5GB of data or 4 hours of video using compatible DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media; also supports DVD-RAM
The operating system is Vista Home Basic so you should be cautious since this is Microsofts least expensive operating system with some limitations.Take a look here.
