I just pruchase this laptop 2 weeks ago fromm best buy. This is my second toshiba in 2 years. I am please w/their equipment to date. I previously used the A75-S206 for almost a year and decided that i wanted something a little smaller. The 14" truebrite widescreen is so wonderful compared to the A75 i had. DVD playback is awesome. I did add another 512mg of ram this weekend and seen a difference. This little beast runs very fast and a little warm at the palm rest where the hard drive is, but nothing to, to hot. I have yet to have any large problems or concerns. I use this machine wired and wireless. The centrino seems to be a better cpu then the p4 i had. The wireless reception is better on this model than the A75 i had before. Battery is no comparison between the p4 and centrino. I can actually watch a full dvd w/out the battery pooping out on me. I do use the targus podium to keep ait flowing below the case. I am very pleased that i upgraded to the centrino and didn't buy the dell 700m notebook. I have yet tested the video card do to me not being a big gaming type of person.
Don't hesitate on this lovely machine, you will be very pleased.
