Toshiba Equium A210-1AS

 

Fantastic large screen with good clear resolution, graphics card able to cope with high demand pc games. Good sound from inbuilt speakers. Done everything i have asked of it. Recomended

Since this is my first laptop i cant say for sure if the battery is bad or not as have no comparison. Just feel it could do better than the hour to hour and a half i get from it after a full charge.

Honestly, this is a perfect lap top for browsing and downloading and playing tracks. It works fine and haven't stalled since. I would say the speed is not bad at all.

If you're interested in gaming or watching films, dont bother!! It has a rubbish graphic card so when watching films, you can see the pixels. If you need some thing for gaming etc, I recommend to read reviews specifically for such purposes.
