1) I've seen Toshiba's only in shop's. The Truebrite tecnology works very well and the screen looks great (like Sony's XBlack). The Acer's is a "normale" TFT LCD. Nothing special, but great bright (200nit). Looks like a lamp!...
I've got an 8003 here in Italy from 1week.
The screen is Ok for me, nothing special but Ok. The definition is Great (1400x1050) and there's much space to work! The NB is really sturdy. Good build quality. Power?! A lot!!!
My tm8003 start and stop first level fan at the same deg.
No problem because mine get that deg only few times and the fan start for about3 or 5 seconds every 10/20 minutes.
Let me understand: yours get 44deg at 600mhz in 5 minutes?!
Try using SpeedSwitcXP. Probably windowz power management fails somewhere (my profile portable/laptop fail! With battery force CPU to stay at 1,6 ghz!!! With AC the CPU goes to 600Mhz!!! It isn't normal!!!).
My 8003 is Banias 1,6 with 1Mb cache. No appreciable difference with DOthan 2.0Ghz 2Mb cache in normal use. You can find differences only with very big power consumption software like Video Editing.
