I thought that you could not install new XP installation onto the laptop with the JBOD setting as this is for the recovery option only?? I know Lenovo is supposed to have a solid reputation for end-user service, so maybe my experience was isolated in nature. The screen is rigid with no rippling, twisting of wobble noticed. After seeing the Mac OS though, improvements on the Windows interface are very welcome. I used the S’s Toshiba Portege S touchpad view larger image The touchpad is large and placed right in the center.

Overall, I found the system to run a bit hot, very similar to other Toshiba’s I’ve come across. This is the machine when pushed to its maximum and not really reflective of its behavior in normal use. Do you already have an account? There have been no issues with any Canadian S notebooks listed. The battery life of the S, a 6-cell, is capable of driving the notebook while streaming video over a wireless network at full brightness, for about 1h45m.
The keys are responsive and large enough to make typing very comfortable and fast. After tweaking the power management software, I managed to keep the S zippy while keeping fan noise to a minimum. Toshiba ships the S with a set of very useless and cool looking applications which make connecting to networks more intuitive.
I got the warranty on top of that for 3 years accidental coverage. I know Lenovo prtege supposed to have a solid reputation for end-user service, so toshibx my experience was isolated in nature. Aug 24, The Toshiba S is a thin and light notebook bordering on ultra portable that is part of the executive Portege series.
This automatically put me in the thin-and-light category rather than the ultra-light integrated video, lack of CPU power and HD space. Toshiba S back left side view larger image. While not abysmal, it is below average.

Amazingly the notebook runs fine although the bumper has small cracks in it and the corner is no longer flush. I find the tosyiba that I use to be very useful and intuitive. Toshiba ships the S with a set of very useless and cool looking applications which make connecting to networks more intuitive.
As well, I was able to get a very strong signal one floor up from my router. I found a lot of non-OEM cells but don’t trust their quality. But still it cannot find a hard rxid. I never found the machine to be so hot that it was uncomfortable to use, except when used directly on the lap for extended periods of time use a notebook cooler for that.
But it’s running a 6-cell. I fully recommend this laptop to those looking for a light functional notebook that is durable and handsome. I also wanted a notebook from a company that offered a reliable accidental warranty and with local repair depots.
There is also a bit of light on the bottom of the screen. Log in or Sign up.
Personally I’d say go through that BIOS one page of info at a time and find that setting ’cause I’m fairly confident it’s in there, someplace. I got the warranty on top of that for 3 years accidental coverage. Well in craptacular fashion, my notebook took a dive onto porteege.
