    If you are looking at a Toshiba lap top of any kind and you expect it to work for more than a year, you better think twice.

    Their warranty is 365 days and they don't mean one hour more. The things have a known design flaw, or maybe you could say deliberate time bomb, that causes the display to go black.

    Check out their own "tech" web site for verification. It appears to be common in everyone of their lap top models and well known to them.

    Just search for the word "display" for the corperate con man to be revealed.

    You low life theives at Toshiba may have got me for a few hundred bucks but it will be the last nickle you ever get and I'll be shooting back at you on these messege boards for the rest of my life or until you start making it right with the your victims. My case number is 3-7188079 that would be a good place to start.

    Just the other side of the coin here - I'm talkin from my wifes Toshiba Satellite. I bought this 2 1/2 years ago and it is still running (Knocking on the desk as I type). We have installed Windows prof. and only had a few glitches - the main one was a virus that killed everything - right in the middle of 2 auctions and one purchase. I am thinking about a larger capacity hard drive though, or a regular desktop comp.
