    Anything older , something that has Win 7 and you will be good.

    If you use a touch screen only then Win 8 is OK , as long as you don't get a BS trial version.

    Get Pro.

    Many refurbished machines just have updated OSs, you can roll the OS back and have a nice-new machine, For cheap.

    Vista and XP is great, depending what you use the computer for, they may be a good choice.

    Well, I have been using the Toshiba for 4 months now....no complaints. Battery life if I cycle it once in a while to get a good charge...is only about 3 hours, or a little more. It does help a lot to turn down the screen brightness button a couple of clicks.

    Were you able to make a Backup set of Windows DVDs ?

    What Version of Windows did it come with ?

    I like my Toshiba laptop better than my Dell. And like my HPs the most, not sure they are any better, They just work.

    Came with windows 7 home premium. I have not made back up disks....hard for me to deal with those kinds of problems. If something that bad went wrong, I would take it to my guru

    A couple of years ago I went with a Mac!
    I'm never going back and I love it!

    Yea, it costs more but it is worth every penny...

    Not bad for the price.
