The Toshiba a300 is the best laptop i have ever owned. I bought this laptop back in 08 and it is a great computer! It comes internet ready so there is no hassle. I have 4 gb ram and 420 of hard drive space so i can run almost all programs and games. The graphics card is not a bad one and has good picture. I love the blue ray player feature on my laptop. This laptop runs very smoothly, and is extremely fast for any computer let alone a laptop. The battery doesn't last very long but that is a small price to pay for the speed. The fingerprint login is a very cool feature. I enjoy the speakers very much. I mainly use my laptop for editing videos and audio clips and would rather use it than a mac. I didn't like the operating system (vista) so i upgraded it to windows 7 and have had no problems with speed or efficiency. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. I don't use internet explorer (Use google chrome, much faster) but google chrome is lightning fast with this computer and theres never any loading time.
