I am looking to finally puchase my first laptop, after putting it off for a long time --I think I am finally ready. I am looking for a good all-around laptop, I don't need a super-gaming machine or something specifically for maximum number-crunching -- just a good all-around system. I'd like it to be a possible desktop replacement capable model (meaning not hardware limited in any way) if possible. My budget is targeted around $1000ish (meaning plus a little is ok for a good deal - minus is better). Through personal experience and reccomendations I have been avoiding some manufacturers and looking specifically at Toshiba. They seem to have a good mix of features, good prices, and come with good experiences from people I have talked to about them. One model I am specifically looking at is the Satellite A60-S166. Toshiba Notebook Satellite A60-S166 Pentium4 2.8G(518), 15.0" XGA TFT, 256MB, 40GB, WLAN, WinXP PRO. I found it for $1089, and also has a $100 rebate available -- making it $989. Now the only thing I saw is that the memory seemed a little low, so I figured I'd jump right in and add a 512mb stick or even a 1g stick depending on pricing. Another I was looking at: Toshiba Satellite A55-S306. This one has the PM 715 Centrino 1.5G, otherwise basically same except for 60g HDD. $1049 after all the mail-in rebates. Same deal with memory. Now this one is the new processor and only 1.5G, but more cache, etc. I dunno which is better on battery life, actual processing power, etc. Opinions on these or any Toshibas? Is the P4 the right choice (others are both less and more expensive)? How about anything I'm missing or I should look for? Any hot deals out there?
