Well I was looking at computers online think If I should buy one with my money. I saw This one and I started looking through. Everything looked good to me, but then again I'm not that good with computers. Does this computer really live up to the 5 stars it gets?
Everything is decent, but don't even think about buying it for gaming.

It has an onboard graphics controller. :thdown:
[del]i personally advoid toshiba like the plague cause they give Absolutly 0 0 tech help and on the off cahnce they do all theyl do is redirect you to nearby franchises that do offer tech support(from what i have heard)[/del]
Also why not build a comp?(much cheaper and better)
So i have been lied to big surprise :(
Average Processor, Good RAM, Horrible Video Card.

Capt, Toshiba has awesome customer support and great international support.
personal expierence their tech support blows goats.
But as mentioned their international support rocks. Wich means your laptop breaks down in norway no problem it will get fixed there. Asus does the same btw.
If you see "Intel" and "Graphics" on the same line, avoid like a plague. They have absolutely the crappiest drivers out of every single graphics manufacturers out there. (My U820 can't play a 9 year old game).

For gaming: yes. For office work or surfing: no. Latest generation on-board would even qualify for video playback acceleration.

That would be AMD. I'm pretty happy with my G35. But then again, I'm not running Windows.
agreed, 720p is no problem for the GMA500, but gaming... ugh.
For the price and intended use (probably office-related programs centrally), it probably does. But if you want to do gaming, not even close.

    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
