March 23rd, 2007, 05:01 PM #1Where to buy toshiba notebook?
Hello there .
I am looking to buy a brandnew toshiba or sony laptop.
Could anyone recommend any good online store with good (read as C-H-E-A-P) prices?? Amazon doesn't count

I can't tell you where to buy it , but if you use ITUNES you should make sure whichever one you buy is compatible with it. There are a few Toshiba models that are not compatible with itunes ;(.
edit: You can search on the itunes support site to narrow down which of the notebooks do not work properly with itunes. Hopefully at this point is has been resolved with the newer models.

Buy from Toshiba or SonyStyle direct, but buy it from their U.S. storefronts, and get it shipped to you in the U.K. It'll be much cheaper than buying it in Britain, Mitty.

I was thinking about amazon since circuitcity and amazon have the same prices with exception of amazon not charging shipping and sales tax to mississippi while circuitcity does.
I even though of buying through my own ref link from amazon but i know they won't pay comission. for my own purchases.

Just my $0.02. If I had to choose between Sony and Toshiba for a laptop, I'd buy a Dell.

Dells are great, but I am still a Sony man. This poll was interesting, but having one with Dell in it too (and maybe HP and IBM) would be interesting...

Toshiba VS Sony?
The toshiba has two massive problems. First of all, the place where you plug the power cord in, the hole is almost always bigger than the pin, so when you put the power cord in there is a very high risk of pin breakage for the power supply. The problem with this? The pin is ON THE MOTHERBOARD. What does this mean? If you break the power supply pin, you have to replace your motherboard. I have had two Toshiba laptops and replaced three motherboards over four years. I have a new Sony and the way the power cord goes in this one is AWESOME and if it breaks? I don't have to replace the motherboard, much better. Also the fan is on the bottom and Toshibas are known for chronic overheating because the fan can't get any air since it is under the computer.... huge pita. Anyway, I would not recommend a Toshiba. My Sony is only a month old though, so it will be some time before I can recommend a Sony. If you do buy a Toshiba, check to make sure the power pin is NOT In the motherboard to save you alot of grief and expense later if it breaks!

When it comes to notebooks, I would say YMMV.
HP: I have used a HP notebook in 2000-2003 and I did not baby it, works every time w/o fail.
Dell: Bought a dell 2.8 notebook (w/ desktop processor), that thing came from Elm Street or what? Problem after problem the min I took it out from the box and I think I spent at least 24 hrs over 1 year with their IT on diff problems. Now, the HD kaput and I have used less than 30hrs on it. My friend bought a 600M when it first came out, same issue. Bios, LCD failure, keyboard failure, etc. YMMV but their desktop are solid.
Sony/Toshiba: Never personally used it but they look nice.
IBM: Using one now and they rock.
That being said, where can you buy them:
Borrowed from fat wallet-
Sony VAIO N220E/B
Pentium Dual-Core T2060,1.6GHz
80GB, 8X DVD+/-RW Drive, 802.11b/g
Windows Vista Home Premium
-$200 MIR(Exp 04/14/2007)
Final Price: $899.99 - $200 = $699.99 + Free Shipping + State tax may apply
Fry's Electronic aka www.outpost.com is selling this for 699 w/o rebate
Check out office depot, Bestbuy, Circuit city, Frys or compUSA as they have deals going on

Thank you all for suggestions.
I had two brands in mind Toshiba and Sony.
Well,i ended up ordering toshiba from amazon.I shopped around and surprisingly the amazon beat everyone's price.They had 150$ rebate on mine.
I got core 2 duo processor 2ghz ,2gb ram,200gb hdd,256 dedicated video ram and 17" screen.
It came out to my budget limit as close as it gets ($1900+) so i though"this is it babe"
I wouldn't be able to fit simmilar 'book from Sony in my budget so I am all excited hereI just have to wait till April 9th .
Thanks for replies folks.

Though would update on my machine.
Its super fast,quiet and keyboard feels good.It doesnt overheat although i hear fan comes on and off.However there is only one flaw ..Not really a flaw,,rather anoying feature.
It got two blue lights running on the bottom of the case where touchpad is.Its fine during daylight time but at night it aggrevates the living hell out of me.Other then that it's perfect.I am happy!
