Like throwing away the money

 

I had the computer for about 1 week when the hard drive broke down. Toshiba repaired but the computer was soon broken again. I sold it for about 500 US dollars to a second hand shop Fan sitting on right side blowing hot air on your hand. The power cord...

Not working, recovery did not work and that even after several hours of running the recovery CDs

Disappointing performance

 

s, with minimal improvement. I have disabled as much of the startup programs as I can in order to speed up a cold boot - it takes at least 5 minutes before the unit is usable. I find it is quicker to just close the lid and put it in sleep mode, it then...
