Toshiba Satellite C850/02D


LG-supplied screen a little more vibrant than AUO supplied equivalents

100Mbps Ethernet ; Low battery life ; Flexing keyboard

By itself, Toshiba's Satellite C850/02D does OK; however, AU$100 more will get you better battery life, build quality and gigabit Ethernet from its competitors.
