SATA (5400 rpm)

Hello,
i just bought a Satelite i3 dual core toshiba, with 2.13GHz, and 500gb, and a SATA 5400RPM. I was wondering if this is a good computer, i need it for school, does it constantly have any technical problems and always messing up. i had an HP and it was a peice of dirt!!! i had to replace 5 hard drives and the whole computer itself until they decided to just give me a new one cuz of my warranty!! i hope i made a good choice getting this computer!!

  1. Toshiba's are typically very reliable computers. I have one and have never had an issue with it. Like you, I had issues with HP's- 3 to be exact- over a period of 3 years or so.

    Take a look at this study:

  2. I have the same drive speed on my acer aspire...runs good...i prefer a slower drive knowing this acer is a dual core x64
  3. Neither HP or Toshiba actually make laptops. The vast majority of laptops on the market are manufactured by a small handful of Original Design Manufacturers (ODM) and Toshiba buys from the same ODM's that HP does (3 of the 5 anyway).

    Major relationships include:

    * Quanta sells to (among others) HP/Compaq, Dell, Toshiba, Sony, Fujitsu, Acer, NEC, Gateway and Lenovo/IBM - note that Quanta is currently (as of August, 2007) the largest manufacturer of notebook computers in the world.
    * Compal sells to Toshiba, HP/Compaq, Acer, and Dell.
    * Wistron (former manufacturing & design division of Acer) sells to HP/Compaq, Dell, IBM, NEC, Acer, and Lenovo/IBM.
    * Flextronics (former Arima Computer Corporation notebook division) sells to HP/Compaq, NEC, and Dell.
    * ECS sells to IBM, Fujitsu, and Dell.
    * Asus sells to Apple (iBook), Sony, and Samsung.
    * Inventec sells to HP/Compaq, Toshiba, and BenQ.
    * Uniwill sells to Lenovo/IBM and Fujitsu.
