Pros

Offers a generous 3GB of ram, plenty for a budget notebook

1 agrees

AMD CPU provides enough performance for everyday office tasks and internet browsing

1 agrees

Includes a 5400rpm hard drive, unlike Toshiba's previous budget models which tend to include a mediocre 4200rpm drive

1 agrees

Far lower starting price than Intel Core 2 Duo based notebooks

1 agrees

Integrated graphics performance is better than expected, certainly stronger than the Intel integrated graphics

Cons

Terrible design for power socket. Two tiny plastic clips hold the internal power socket inside the notebook, which snap with anything apart from very cautious use!

2 agree

AMD's dual core processors are less efficient and warmer running than their Intel Core 2 Duo counterparts, albeit cheaper

1 agrees

Intel's low cost Celeron processors' performance are beginning to catch up, as they start using dual core models, this raises question marks over whether the AMD CPUs are still the best budget option

1 agrees

Massive amounts of bloat ware, will require a clean install in order to get the most out of this computer
