    Toshiba use to build nice laptops like the Tecra 4000 series back in 1998 that cost about $4,000 but it still works even in 2014.

    12-inch LCD Active Matrix Panel, Pentium II 266 MHz, 256 MB of RAM, 128-bit GPU with 256 KB of VRAM, 320GB HDD In had installed along with Windows 7 - 32-bit and PCMICA Wired NIC also Buffalo High Power 54-G.

    Also have 1998 Toshiba Satellite Pro also still runs but very heavy to carry. Their CRT TVs in the 90's had issues with Lightning storms could damage them badly. Toshiba Thrive Tablet 2011/2012 I have two of those they're very good had a lot of features.. Last thing I have it 2013 LCD/LED 1080p HDTV with 3 HDMI ports for the Kitchen and 1 TB USB 3.0 HDD.

    It's shame they have to layoff so many workers in PC division. Move out of the Home PC market.
