i'm in the market for a computer as my compaq presario laptop decided to fail upon startup everytime, and compaq didn;t do jack for me. they laughed it off. so i,m wondering what my prospects are if i get a toshiba laptop.
There was an articile on laptop reliability - Tosibia was rated better than Dell, HP/Compaq.
I have a 6 yr old Compaq which is still running (Had to replace the CMOS battery and bought a 2nd battery)
I since bought a tosibia A205 about a year and half ago and about 6 - 8 Monthes ago bougth the Tosibia A305.
My reason for picking the A305 was more for:
(1) same battery as A205 as I had bought a 2nd 9 cell battery for A205
(2) Easy of replacing the DVD writer as I swapped out both DVD drives for a Blu-ray player/DVD writer. (A205 is Pata DVD and A305 is Sata for DVD drive.
As to 2nd HDD bay, a diffenate plus if as I did replace the HDD with a SSD (120 gig patriot Torqx).
