Toshiba Netbook: New Toy Oh ay Oh!

"I want a New Toy (oh ay oh), to keep my head expanding.
I want a New Toy (oh ay oh), nothing too demanding.
Then when everything is in roses everything is static"
- Lene Lovich

  1. That looks great! I love my MBP to death, but on some level I know it's a school machine and will not last forever.

    Are you still running Windows 7 on it? When I saw the 1GB of stock RAM, that was my only real concern. I'd love ot hear how you feel about this machine two weeks in!

  2. i don't think it can run SL - i didn't expect it to....meaning i bought it just to do minimum stuff like take notes, and show presos. Hmmm
    and being not a PC grrl wouldn't know how to judge a graphic card / memory to see if its enough. do you know? anyone? Bueller?
