So, after my wife's PowerBook G4 finally died (completely), we got her this one as a replacement. It's such a great little machine!! It's so light, has a snappy performance, and has all the right ports. Plus, it only cost $749 and was available locally at BestBuy. I was skeptical about Office 2010 Starter, but it's actually great, the ads don't bother at all (no PowerPoint or Outlook, however). The only little downside with the BestBuy version is that it has no integrated Bluetooth, but she doesn't use that anyway.

Very impressive, Toshiba. Toshiba just needs to keeps making them like this and drop the billion SKU syndrome to become a real thorn in the side of Apple, HP and Samsung.
