Toshiba Satellite A35-S159


Despite some pluses, including good battery life, this desktop replacement is disappointing.

The $1349 Toshiba Satellite A35 would be a good starter notebook for a home or small office, or for students seeking a reliable dorm room PC that they can also carry to class on occasion.
