Have a couple, one seems like it's getting old on me, fan doesn't work, buttons wearing out, you know the deal.
I have had great luck with Toshiba's over the years so decided to look at their website. Right now they have a sale that is supposed to end Sunday the 15th. Since I haven't been looking at laptops I'm not sure if this is a ploy or if prices really will revert to retail after the 15th.
4gb ram and a powerful enough processor is all I care about. The one I'm thinking about comes with a "dual" core AMD w/1mb L3 cache, 4gb ram, and AMD Radeon™ HD 7520G integrated graphics. Should be enough. $430 and free shipping. On this model I can also upgrade to a quad core AMD w/4mb L3 cache for $40 making price $480(worth it?).
Or, for $50($480) more I can get same model but with a true intel dual core processor w/3mb L3 cache, 6gb ram, and what is perhaps more powerful graphics components- Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics(?). $480 and free shipping
I'm not a gamer and suspect the $430 unit with AMD Radeon HD integrated graphics would perform as well for me as the intel based system's HD 3000 integrated graphics.
I don't really need another laptop, haven't kept tabs on the market for quite some time, but I'm seeing $430 and seems like a great price.
