Well Hayes, I would have to say I am somewhat surprised that Toshiba would discontinue a product so fast. And considering I have the S705 is another reason to be concerned. Although, it doesn't really bother me a WHOLE lot, regardless of whether they sell it or not I am still very much happy with this laptop , although I would like to get my review posted, just work has been keeping me away a bit.
Who knows, Toshiba discontinuing the S705 may temporarily make the value of it go up a bit higher for those people who wanted to get one or were saving etc etc.
I probably should have posted this in the other thread you had going, but oh well. I am still looking forward to this new Toshiba 17" WUXGA laptop coming out. It looks fantastic.
