I have been postponing to buy a new PC for a long time.
Last week my hard drive crashed, only a week after reinstalling my machine. I luckily I was able to clone my harddisk, the same night. Everything woks fine now, but it was the sign to start looking for a new machine.
After working with a super notebook, similar to this one, I’m ready for a ultra portable one.
I considered a MacBookPro, but I am still to much addicted to the Microsoft way of working
It’s a great machine.

Great machine, great configuration, great price.
not available in this configuration in Belgium.
I tried asking Toshiba Belgium for more info, but they don’t want to help.
That would be fine if ToshibaDirect.com would also sell to people outside the US, but they don’t. ToshibaDirect is not interested in people outside the States.
They said it’s ok to buy it and send it to an American Friend. He can bring it to Belgium. But they don’t want to sell it to someone outside the USA.
So I have tow options:
Buy the Belgium one, and replace the harddrive with a faster one, replace the standard memory with enough memory so its workable, or ask American friends to bring the machine with them (and not being able to deduct the taxes)
Both expensive choices, maybe I should buy a Mac after all…
Update: I bought it anyway, and I wrote a perfection game about it
