Was walking around a pier lined with shops in Miami a few days ago when I happened upon a store window that was displaying a Toshiba notebook with a 17" screen. It looked really sweet. It had Harmon Kardon speakers and a 17" widescreen display that sported a gorgeous picture of the playback DVD, Monsters Inc. I was rather impressed by the picture quality of the DVD. It was a far beter display than what my current Sony Vaio notebook is capable of reproducing. This looked to be Toshiba's base model. The shopkeeper quoted me $1700. I found it online for $1500. Yeah, it's heavy and abnormally sized, but the coolness factor of owning this notebook is very tempting. Anyone have any thoughts on the quality of Toshiba notebooks -- especially this one in particular? Anyone actually buy one of these? Look forward to reading your feedback.
