Toshiba Satellite A100-163

I cannot find any reviews on this machine anywhere. Does anyone know of one?

Does anyone have any views on it, good or bad?

Also does anyone know if the HD is a 4200rpm or 5400rpm 80GB?

click here 5400rpm according to this.

I can't find a review of that model, only the next one up click here so I'll make up an ad-hoc review of my own: Nice screen-size; it's a Tosh, so it can't be too shabby; weight is good; battery life is a bit iffy; nice spec for the price.

As it's available in PC World and John Lewis, you might be able to have a first-hand look if there's a branch nearby.

Thanks ade.h.

I was hoping it would be a 5400rpm drive.

Tosh is pretty good then, yeah? On a par with Sony, HP and the likes?

I'd rate them above Sony for durability if not for looks.

Preferable in my opinion to similar priced HPs.

They seem to last forever...

Ouch, you hurt me!! LOL.

Happy HP owner here, since October last year. It replaced an ancient (in my view) 3 yr old Tosh that had served me very well and probably should have been awarded a burial with honour guard! So far, my trusty HP has more than lived up to its predecessor's standard and has not so much as blipped.
