I have the
Toshiba Satellite L70-CBT2G22 Laptop.
It’s corners are a bit more angular as opposed to the rounded ones of my
last model but texture of plastic and keyboard are the same. the only other
difference is the speakers are more towards the front and seem to be bigger
affording much fuller sound.
I hope this helps.

I just bought one of the Toshiba Satellite series. It’s my second
one from them. The machine is reliable, powerful and its onboard sound isn’t
tinny as some laptops can be. I mention this because while there are plenty of
output options to address this if one has to use it on the road for instance
listening to speech through bad speakers can wear on one. I’m very happy with
it and it was easy to reconfigure the function keys so they’d operate as
normal. Many laptops today configure them to do special things and one must go
into bios to address this but not with this model I’m glad to report.
I hope that helps.

Hi all. In the new year I'm contemplating getting a
laptop. It has been a few years since I had one and things have moved on
a fair bit since then. However I would like to know which manufacturer
is considered to have the best quality products. A few years ago I saw a
lot of posts on lists like this moaning and complaining about HP but have they
improved? are they considered a good bet for quality and reliability
now? There is a lot of differing brands on offer but I'd like to
consider your opinions on the various brands and their pros and cons before
seeking out a suitable model. I've just looked at one web site and
noticed that laptops are still rather expensive. I actually want a
laptop rather than a tablet because the hard drives are larger and there is an
integral keyboard and more than one USB. I've discounted apple as Apple
are too controlling, restrictive and it is a completely new learning curve
which I'm not inclined to embark on. I would much prefer win7 as the OS,
definitely not Win8. The site I looked at has no Win10 which surprises
me so I'll need to go with Win7, stick with what I know I
If you have an opinion on the various brands then will you
please let me know your thoughts and why you have come to the conclusions you
have. With thanks. Walter.
