Hello TF, it's been a loong time
So yeah... I have a sony vaio laptop (dad's), and it started to not turn on, so my dad came to me with it, and I opened it up to reset the cmos (never found the battery...), and I told him we needed a new one. So we went out and bought a Toshiba Satellite a305. This thing is amazing. All for 630 with tax we got:
Core 2 Duo t7250 (I think), 2 ghz, 2mb cache, and I think 800mhz FSB
Vista of course
Intel X3100 onboard gfx (surprisingly alright, so I've heard...)
Probably the best laptop speakers I've ever had
15.4" screen (it's alright, though. Colors are vibrant, and screen is bright)
but yeah, here's some pics
It's pretty light, too. It's like 5 pounds, I think.
So yea. I know there are better laptops, but 600 dollars. That's good, in my opinion.
