Yes, they are upgradeable, and what do you want to do with it? I always recommend the iBook and Powerbooks whenever I can

Toshiba are good laptops. Some parts of a laptop are upgradable. I don't think the motherboard is, but the hard drive and RAM are.

Jeez, but this gets old. There are so many threads asking the same thing.

Do a search for "buying laptop" and you'll get two dozen threads.
