Am considering this:

Has to be PC, not Mac.

http://us.toshiba.com/computers/laptops/satellite/P770/P775-S7320

Would like to keep it <$900, even less would be better. Will not be used for gaming (visiting grandkids can stuff-it).

Any opinions/experiences greatly appreciated.

Dell's out of the question as, they have done some very bad things with laptops in the past.
(Like pre-loading Vista on a platform that wasn't designed for it.)

Gracias, Muchachos,
Love, Bobby

I haven't comparrison shopped lately so wait for the experts but it seems to be pretty good specs for sub $1000. I like Toshiba laptops, myself. Currently hating the HP one I got assigned at work to replace my old Toshiba.

One observation.
HD is on the slower side but you may not even notice that, depending on your intended usage.

BTW, I like my Dell XPS very much, and I'm siding with the visiting grandkids.

I'm liking the fact that Bob will see a bunch of responses to his question, but they'll all be BS posts from me! smile

Be aware that Toshiba loads a TON of crapware on their machines, which tend to be kind of flimsy. Fast machines, but there are those considerations.

Me, buying a PC laptop (which ain't gonna happen), I'd be looking at Thinkpads.

Re. Crapware. First hing I do to any PC I didn't build myself.... Format.

Of course, I can't do that on corporate machines anymore or I get flagged on the LAN as a rogue and the IT cops come and threaten me with nerf guns and silly string or something like that.

Edit:
Oh ya, Love, Andy

Thanks for responding Ken, Andrew and not Mark.

It's predominatly going to be used for Bill's sanity management, as he is now spending 2 nights and 3 days a week at his octogenarian parents' house to do their feeble and entirely irrational bidding.

He's already sucked up having dinner be OVER by 4:30 on those nights, but he can't do Wheel and Jeopardy with them any longer, what with all the bludgeoning possiblities presented by his mother's copious chatzke collections.

So he really wants a 17" screen for TV and movies, but will mostly use it for the same stuff everyone else does---avoidance.

P.S. Anyone looking after aged parents, my hat is off and my heart is out to you. My responsibilities ended 4 years ago, so at least I'm not dealing with mine while he's doing the same. That had been our biggest fear by far for years. I guess I'll still call that "lucky."
Well, except for the times I was out of the house with them when their, umm, systems failed. Nice.
