i own a toshiba satellite 3000-601, check
for more details.
gfx performance is quite good (geforce 2 go) and current satellites
incorporate a geforce 4 go, imho.
if you attach proper speakers the sound of the intel 810 soundchip is
good, too. do not expect anything good from the internal ones.
but i am no audio expert, so for (semi-)professional use it is likely
not to be appropriate.
there are some problems with acpi on my machine, though, but nothing
essential. some special keys (fn) do not work, too, but again,
i cannot tell you anything about the support from toshiba, had no
problems since the day of purchase (february 2002).
