Good laptop or not?
I am looking at this: Toshiba Tecra 9000 on Ebay, because I only want a laptop for WRITING and opening large files, and listening to music. So, tell me:
Is this a good deal? A good laptop? Or can I get something cheaper?
NOTE: I need to be able to use Windows XP on it, and install my disc with Microsoft Office 2003. So I figure at least half a gig of RAM is good, and 20 gig hard-drive.

Just good mate, IMO.
Win XP need at least 128 of RAM, and yours 256 which is okay. 20 GIGs for me, is just nice if you only use for typing stuff, like working on your assignments and so on, open large files...like pictures you mean? or some kind of project? Then I think it won't be a problem. And listening to music.
It's just okay. Was that your budget? I don't live in US, so I don't know if that is cheap or whatIf only the dead can speak, then we will know what's happening to us all next...

I wanna go under 300 definately. My mom is willing to get a really nice one, but I would rather use that opportunity to get something I know I'll really need, like a PS3 LOL
But I write a lot of stories. I am an aspiring author, so this is where I start. No more notebooks for me! Yay!
Thanks for your feedback, by the way ^_^

Pretty much all of the laptops of that toshiba model (tecra 9000) were returned to distributor because of gluing - or whatever, the laptops just fell apart - problems where I work.
Maybe a bad batch, maybe a bad model. I wouldn't get one of those.
I might remember wrong but it might've also been that the hd's of that model broke.

that one looks like a much better lappy.
IMO the first one is a bit dated.. even by slow standards today..--- Standby to receive our transmission ---
