Any experiences of Toshiba Tecra?

  Diodorus Siculus 18:25 20 Jun 2008

The specific machine I'm looking at is at TechnoWorld for about £60 +VAT cheaper than PCWB.

I've had a lot of Toshiba's through my hands but none were Tecras. They seem to be aimed at the business end of the market.

Any thoughts on this one?

Further, anyone got any experience of removing all the software off a Toshiba and doing a clean install of XP / Vista?

Cheers, Dio

Ignore this - after some searching online, I don't think this is the one for me!
