Toshiba Satellite M60-132

This was a widescreen 17" laptop we bought for my wife to replace her older Toshiba. She was very happy with the older Toshiba -- it was still working fine and passed on to her nephew simply because processor and hard-drive technology had moved on.

Unfortunately the M60-132 was a big disappointment. The keyboard was quite bad and had difficulties with several keys missing -- frequent cleaning helped a bit. The computer had weird issues where it would simply beep loudly for no reason from time to time. Very recently the LCD developed a vertical green line right through the middle.
