So how is this model of Toshiba? How is the 230M gpu. Notebookchecker shows it as pretty decent gpu but I don't know a whole lot about benchmarking. Does anyone know a cheap place to get maybe a 2ndary battery at? I'm open to suggestions. Also is there new tech around the corner (gpu, cpu from amd) or is it far off? Thanks for your time
