that you'll be getting an entry level, low spec machine you won't be disappointed with this laptop. There's no CD writer, and no floppy drive, so backing up to removeable media is out unless you buy an external floppy or ZIP drive, or an external CD writer.
Otherwise, the standard 256Mb RAM could be usefully upgraded to 512Mb and you would see a performance improvement. The hard drive is only 30Gb ( A few years ago that would have been a hige drive, and as far as I know Toshiba don't offer anything larger for this range - so no upgrade capability there.
At this price point you're not going to get a speed demon of a gaming machine, and as long as you take that on board you'll find the A10 a useful computer.
