I am thinking about getting the Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 but I wanted to see what the other forum regulars thought about it first.

I was thinking about getting a netbook but after reading about the horrors of Windows 7 Starter, I changed my mind.
I need something simple to type papers, surf the internet, watch DVDs, and play some freeware games (e.g. Urban terror). Could it do all of these without a problem? Most of the computer work I do is on a desktop.
This notebook will be a replacement for a 4-year-old HP notebook which is starting to have problems.

This laptop that I suggest costs a little bit more, but I use it, and have had no problem. The Asus K50IJ is a great laptop that I use everyday. I don't have a desktop, and it plays many games that I play.

ASUS is a really good brand for laptops, also look at the Dell Inspiron 15 line. I was going to get that one, but I was the K50IJ and got that instead. Both really good laptops, nonetheless.

just buy one most practical at present and some day when you are tired of it..throw it away and buy a new set. after all, laptop is not like a paper notebook
