Toshiba R830-1G1 PT32LE-01V00CEN

 

excellent clarity and outstanding selection of screen savers and back ground screens. Also, very quick operation.

Having to make 5 back-up discs and cannot load letters that had been stored on a disc that had been burnt from a laptop that had used Vista Home Premium system, very annoying.
