"Completely Unsatisfied"1.0 starson by Rhinomiller
Pros: I was attracted to the Portege's combination of utility, weight and reasonable price. The computer is light weight, but that is about it.
Cons: The PC runs incredibly hot and Toshiba utilities chew through memory. The laptop is prone to systemic error (I have had multiple blue screen of death attacks).
Summary: I am a basic business user, nothing fancy (MS Office is the only software loaded on my machine). The return policy of 14 days when buying from Toshiba Direct makes purchasing from an outside vendor like Best Buy a must if you are going to take a chance on a very flawed machine or Toshiba products generally.
