      Toshiba Satellite M35x-S149 Toshiba is known for quality build and the Satellite M35x-S149 notebook only compliments that reputation. This 15. 4 inch widescreen portable is more than adequate for first time notebook owners, power users and anyone needing a midsized portable that won’t break your back or pocketbook.

      With an Intel Celeron M Processor 340, I was initially concerned about potential speed issues. The Satellite shines in this area though, and there’s no lull in performance whatsoever when performing basic word processing duties, surfing the web or checking email and even multitasking.

      The 15. 4 inch WXGA


      widescreen is phenomenal in every regard! The display is crisp, clear and big enough to serve as a desktop replacement.

      The hard drive in this unit is 60gigabytes and easily stores your MP3 collection, work files and much more!

      With three built-in USB ports, I have enough room to sync my PDA, plug-in a wireless mouse and still power an additional device. Two USB ports are located on the back of the machine and the third is found on the right side of the unit.

      Wireless is built-in to the Satellite M35x and with WindowsXP ...


      • Home Edition pre-installed, setting up a home network took less than five minutes time. There’s a convenient on/off switch for wireless located on the right side of the notebook.

        As with most notebooks, the sound on the Toshiba is fair to good. Two, well-set, front-based speakers provide ample sound for playing MP3s, watching movies and more, but can’t compete with higher end sound cards or desktop speakers.

        A built-in CD-R/DVD drive completes this package nicely. With a left-side loading disc player, system backups and movie watching are a pleasure.

        The battery holds about a

        three hour charge; long enough for a full length DVD or a lengthy night of surfing. This notebook runs Linux as smoothly as it does Windows.

        My current setup dual boots with all drivers (for both Operating Systems) being recognized- with no help from me. The downside to this purchase? The Satellite comes with only 256mb of RAM, which I quickly needed to upgrade after a few system lulls.

        512mb RAM is onboard now, which is plenty for average use, though likely not enough if you’re a heavy gamer. The touchpad is also ultra-sensitive, though it can be disabled in favor of a portable mouse.
