Had mine for two weeks nowI purchased the tecra m2 about 2 weeks ago.
My config was: 1.5 gig centrino, 60gig 5400 hd, 256mb ram (i took this out at put in 2 512 sticks for 1 gig total, much cheaper to do it myself), 64mb video card, and xga screen (wish I had gotten sxga, it was available).
I love this laptop. It is built wonderfully, no dead pizels on screen and no ghosting problems when I play games. The performance on this laptop is absolutely amazing for a thin and light series.
I ran 3dmark2001 seven times at all levels of resolution. My lowest score was 6307 and my highest score was 6457. This was outstanding. I can play any game I own comfortably on this baby!! I also ran PCmark2002 and recieved good scores but I dont remeber what they were (i didnt save the scores).
The hard drive performs remarkably fast and the battery blew me away.
The toshiba website posted a average battery life of 4 hours. Two days ago I decided to see if this was close. At school running soley on the battery, I used Microsoft word, Dreamweaver, played some NES games on an emulator, and did a norton antivirus check. It took 4.5 hours for my battery to go dead. WOW my last laptop with a ATHLON4 mobile processor would barely make 1 hour.
