if you get an offer for a really good deal on a n-used toshiba lap top a30-a35 series. don't. i mean really. don't. i have mine with beefed up RAM and it still stinks. granted, it's 3 years old. but still.
i nuked the entire operating system recently and redid everything and it still stinks. i have no databii installed at present and it *still* sinks.
