LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY -- I have been a consultant for over 10 years, so I have used just about everything out there in the way of laptops(IBM, HP, Gateway, Dell) and have nothing negative to say about them until now. Within 3 months, my Toshiba power supply would no longer charge the battery or provide power to the computer. After about 18 months the computer started to overheat and was not reliable. I cleaned the boards and fans and bought a cooling plate so I could use it. I now have an additional systems problem and their solution is to scrap the computer and reload it or buy a new computer. I would not buy another Toshiba if my life depended on it. As a consultant my livelyhood depends on it and I have found the Toshiba to be the worst computer I have ever owned.
