Default Need Some Computer Geeks....

Toshiba Satellite P15-S479. From http://reviews.cnet.com/Toshiba_Sate...9668&tag=uolst , I get mixed reviews.

Does anyone have anything to say about this particular model of laptop or the manufacture?

Looking to buy one tonight for my trip to the sandbox

A variety of things. Not too much on the games, though.

I've seen a lot of problems with Toshiba processors burning themselves up. I had to replace a friend'* a month after he got it brand new because they didn't put any thermal compound on the chip at the factory. Wonderful quality control.
