Several days ago I wrote an article about the desktop being dead, and received some very interesting comments. A few comments I deleted since they dealt with my heritage, my IQ and even one that suggested I have sex with myself! LOL. So this afternoon when I received an email from Toshiba Direct, one of the laptops caught my attention. The laptop was a monster with a 18.4″ screen that would make a great desktop replacement.

In addition the keyboard is full size and even comes with a numeric keypad. Nice touch. Beside some fairly common specifications listed below, the unit also has a HDMI port.

Here are the specifications:

  • Intel® Core™ i3-330M Processor 2.13 GHz, 3MB L3 Cache, 1066MHz DDR3
  • Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • 3GB DDR3 1066MHz SDRAM (2048MB+1024MB)
  • 320GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial-ATA)
  • No Secondary Hard Drive Installed
  • Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator HD
  • DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) drive
  • Glossy Black keyboard
  • No Bluetooth (No Antenna)
  • Lithium Ion battery (6-Cell, 4000mAh)
  • No Modem
  • Microsoft® Office Ready with Microsoft Office Professional 2007 60-day Trial Edition
  • 1 Year Standard Limited Warranty

What I found attractive about the laptop was that it was priced at $674 with free shipping, directly from Toshiba.  Check out the link below and see what you think.
