This is a very basic machine with not so basic entertainment value. For starters you let a 16-inch widescreen to display HD movies. This also allowed Toshiba to slip in a full keyboord with a numeric pod. The multimedia keys at the top work well and are handy while watching movies. The whole machine has an ergonomic design. Windows Media Player is accompanied by Toshiba's own media player that can play media formats that WMP ignores.The basic firepower is under the hood: Intel Pentium dual core docking at 2 GHz. The 2 GB RAM does help the system perform better, but 1-2 GB more would have been a boon. The 320 GB is good to store space-eating video as well as image files. HDMI, Audio and E-sata ports are located on the right and the twin USB ports are next to the DVD drive on the right.
