    Have been looking for another laptop for quite sometime. The only thing really missing is the keys being closer which is what I prefer. I've even tried some other brands and can't seem to find anything even remotely close to these specs that I like. In comparison I have a Toshiba Sattelite P305D-SS18 which is still in great condition,just want something a little higher up that I can play games on. You'll notice I'm going down to a 15.6'' laptop from a 17''. Not quite as heavy or warm on the ole lap. Here's that Toshiba. Let me know what your thought's are on this and if you know of a better price anywhere. Thanks

    quick to mind, im thinking you are paying for the brand toshiba, you may get a better spec lappy looking at other makes of brand like asus or the likes.

    just had a quick surf on that price range and found a few at $600 that was same spec as your pick if not worse, so yea, thats a good price for a tosh.

    So I'm looking at your computer and am guessing thats a desktop correct? Sweet. I'm going to put you on my friends list if ya don't mind. Haven't been on here for awhile but have started to once again. Love this sight. What do you know about the AMD Phenom 2 Core processor? I think I read there new. I prefer AMD over Intel.

    ive never liked AMD in the 23 years ive had my head in PC's - 8 bits before that.

    and intel did invent them, but i dont want to go on about intel its just what ive always prefered.

    i had a lot of trouble with amd's back in the 2002 - 2005 repairing them, there was always a fix for this and that in windows xp to keep the os from freezing. :p

    but latelly never had a tinker with them tbh.

    add us yea np.
