Yeh, you said. Well when it looked like I might be given money by insurance to dispense with as I wanted, I was working out whether I ought to invest in a mac or not. But seeing as the company are offering me a replacement rather than paying me, I don't really have a choice. A mac isn't on the cards. If I was paying, I'd probably still opt for a laptop because it seems that most people don't have problems. Its unfortunate that they're offering me the same product you had, although mine is obviously a much newer model, so hopefully it will be ok. Ironically another TSRer said they would really recommend Toshiba having had several of them and family members with them and never having issues
And it was the same with every other make I looked at. I hear good and bad reports for Dell, HP, Acer etc.
