I saw an ad in this week's Circuit City circular which interested me: Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 @ Circuit City Primary Specs: Intel® Pentium® M 735 Processor (1.70GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 400MHz FSB) 512MB PC2700 DDR333 SDRAM (256MBx2) 15.4" Wide-screen XGA Display w/TruBrite Technology Intel® 855GME w/16MB-64MB shared video memory 80GB HDD (4200rpm) DVD Super Multi drive Intel® Wireless Pro 2200BG (802.11g) 3-USB (2.0) ports IEEE 1394 port TV-out (S-Video) After rebates and instant savings, it's $1299. I've been an exclusive, long-time Mac user, so I know absolutely zilch about the PC world, much less Centrino notebooks. I've scoured the net for reviews and more info, but found very little or mixed on Toshiba, much less this particular model. CC is also advertising the Toshiba A75-S229 for $1249. Major difference is it has a Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 538 supporting HT Technology (3.20GHz, 1MB L2 cache, 533MHz FSB). Are both, primarily the M35, good values from a reputable vendor? Is there a better vendor (HP, Sony, Dell)? I was considering an iBook/PowerBook, but don't think I could get the same features for the price. Any advice greatly appreciated!
