Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173


Reasonably priced notebook includes both wireless-networking hardware and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive.

P4-challenging performance for $1399 should prompt notebook buyers to celebrate. But the addition of a combination drive and wireless networking makes the Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 one sweet deal.

Great economy system


Surprisingly good speakers (for a laptop), rear port cover

Oddly placed Windows key, low graphics memory (16MB)

This laptop has all the necessary features for the price.

Kind of heavy and memory upgrade is limited.
