I've been a proud owner of a Toshiba A200 since late 2007. There's something very intriguing about the screen on this machine that I have yet to find another comparable machine since then. The screen quality is impeccable in that there's very little reversion of black to grey, no matter what angle you're looking from. A black screen simply looks solid blacks, something that undoubtedly can't be said about a lot of machines when I've done my own side-by-side comparisons. So my machine recently had a motherboard failure and I'm trying desperately to find a new laptop with a comparable screen. I am trying out a Toshiba T230 and the screen is nowhere near as fine as my A200; for example, the windows start up screen just looks grey unless you're viewing right from the centre spot. It's frustrating because I do not know exactly why the display technology does not mirror anything else out there on the mass market, even by Toshiba. Was Toshiba really doing uniquely great screens back then, as used in the a200 range? Also the a200 has great ergonomics; the curved palm wrest was a lifesaver during long work nights.
