Toshiba Satellite Pro M40


Excellent - completely suitable for the job - I purchase these for children with special needs and they are always reliable.

A little heavy for younger children to carry around.

Toshiba Satellite M40X-230


1. Very bright display 2. 3/4 people can watch movie together 3. The 6-in-1 card reader is really useful 4. One of the best feature is the capability of playing CD & DVD without booting O/S. It was not mentioned in the specification and nice surprise....

1. DVD drive speed is not that fast 2. Bit bulky 3. 1 GB RAM would have been better 4. 1 More USB port would have been great
