When the Deal Wizard finds a good product, he tends to get several of them. That's true of the Toshiba Satellite laptop. There are three of them in the house, this post is being written on one of them.
Why? They work... and they're cheap. If you want a laptop that's just fine for web browsing, social media, You Tube, word processing and whatnot, this is your machine.
Through this link from Dealnews.com, Toshiba Direct offers laptops starting at $280. We recommend that model unless you need a larger hard drive or more memory.
Save your box and receipt in the unlikely event you need service. The Wizard had a hard drive fail a while back, but the kind folks at Toshiba took care of it in a flash.
