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.

Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173

 

I didn't purchase mine directly from TOSHIBA, I decided to buy it at STAPLES. The only catch with purchasing any computer from a store such as STAPLES, Best Buy, Circuit City, or other chain computer stores is that when you purchase a computer, it is...

This notebook computer is great for most all mobile computing needs. It has great performance for today's power hungry software programs

There is no serial port, which for most people, isn't a problem. Just about all devices you buy today are USB devices

I highly recommend this notebook. It is VERY user friendly, and a reasonably priced for all of the perks that it has. A+++ in my book!!

This notebook has a great 15" monitor. Also like having a floppy drive and cdrw-dvd drive. All of the cable connections (like printer cable conn.)are enclosed so they don't get dusty. Great sound

The battery only lasts between 2 and 2.5 hours. But OK for my use

This notebook is for the budget buyer. It uses a desktop version of the Celeron-4 CPU (Willamette) so the battery life is inferior to its bigger brothers with the P4-M CPU even if it is slower. I still manage 3-hours out of the batteries though. It...

Value for money. Fits most business applications. Great 15" screen for slideshows & DVD movie viewing. Responsive CPU. Can play audio CD's without powering up the OS. 3-spindle design

Lack of FIR; Line-In audio; and COM serial ports. Inability to configure multiple partitions on hard disk

Great product !!

 

This laptop has all the necessary features for the price.

Kind of heavy and memory upgrade is limited.
