Toshiba Tecra M2

 

The well-rounded Toshiba Tecra M2 is a good choice if you need a versatile two-drive notebook for business use. This mainstream model delivers good wireless throughput and lots of battery and optical drive options—all in the least expensive mainstream...

Light and fast NB

 

This is a very good laptop for regular work, not for any high perfomance work and 3D Mark 2005 Pro was not able to run on this Notebook. Very light and small for travel.
