I have had this Toshiba laptop since June 1, 2006.

It has been a good enough workhorse but hardware and software wise it has been a challenge to keep it running for the 5.5 years that I have had it.  I keep putting off getting a new one but methinks I have pushed my luck long enough.  After the first of the year, I need to buy a new sofa and love seat for the living room BEFORE I can get a new laptop (if the unforeseen does not challenge my sacred budget).

I am not married to Toshiba hardware and MS software even though I have had decent luck with both.  I can find only one USA made laptop and I am not sure my patriotism will overcome my fears that the outfit may no measure up; I expect no less than 3-years of service from my computers and my current laptop is not the first one I have used for over 5-years.
