The a60 has a major fault that it over heats very easily and has an issue were it shuts off randomly and will then struggle to turn back on. Mine then after a spell of shutting it self off, now refuses to turn it's self on. After inspecting it it turns out the mother board had fried. I have heard of many cases of this with this same model. Apart from That major issue it served well for 4 years but is now a bit too out of date. (read more)

Awesome laptop, had it for a while now, i had bought it with vista on it (So Windows 7 may work for it) and the performance was OK.. but we all know Windowss Vista is a performance hogger, so I put Windows XP SP3 on it and it worked like a charm! Although i am going to try to install Windows 7 on it. It's a shame about the graphics card (64mb) and the size of the HDD (40Gb) altough that doesnt bother me. Also the ram can only go up to roughly 1.28gb's. Which is more than enough to run any... (read more)

The Toshiba Satellite Pro A60 is good for development but with win xp and home users instead of desk top.
The good thing is that it has desktop processor which is must faster so need to worry about the speed. Heavy, no wifi, battery will gone after 4 years, no good for games. Resolutions:
1. extend the ram first and you will see the big difference in speed.
2. use the ecternal wifi adopter or smart card
3. Buy the adopter which will hold the battery upto 4 hrs.

This is great little unit, I busted the lid hinge on one side but it still carries on after 4 years of service. Can't find a reason to change it yet (read more)

The over heating can be easily fixed in seconds, remove top keyboard cover flap unscrew two keyboard screws, take out the keyboard (fold it over) remove 3 fan screws and take out the fan under there you will find loads and I mean loads of dust and fluff, well I did.
Remove and it will be great for another 4 years. (read more)

I still like my laptop and would be keeping it if it weren't for the RAM issue. I bought it as a student, and it was perfect for what I needed. I run many programs on it, (obviously not more than 2 at a time) including Photoshop7, Photopaint, CorelDraw 11, Microsoft Office, itunes and a load of other tat. It is an ideal as someone's first laptop, or if you want to write an essay whilst surfing the net and listening to music. (It can do it.....I did) (read more)

Nice laptop, bit pricey originally but still holding its own against some newer models. Recommended as a good laptop for students/home use. (read more)

Toshiba need to do better with this one. Start-up screen says "In touch with tomorrow". But this machine is more interested in hanging on to the past. Performance is not refined enough for 3.0GHz class. (read more)

It's not even wireless enabled, and I've got the Linkysys internet thing, and it hasn't worked at all.

I have had the Toshiba Satellite Pro A60 laptop for over 6 months now and it was working great when I got it. Over time the exhaust fan seemed to get louder and louder. As a graphics and website designer, this computer is good for the simple things. When it comes down to doing anything graphically intensive, like playing a game that requires the use of the video card's abilities, the computer overheats and crashes without warning. In order to prevent this from occurring I have had to prop up... (read more)

The Toshiba Satellite Pro A60 laptop is ideal for entry level home users, and possibly students who have some time on their hands to sort stuff out. I wouldn't say it was suitable for the lower end of the business market, as Toshiba seem to be targeting with this product. I could be wrong however, maybe I was just unlucky!
I have had mine for 8 months now, after previous satellite old faithful, which I had owned for about 7 years, gave up the ghost in the middle of a project, and I needed... (read more)

Toshiba Satellite Pro A60: As I carry around this machine I can't help but notice that it is extremely heavy. I don't think it is practical for a student to carry around or walk with to work on the bus for everyday use. The heat generated by the 2.8 Intel does not add to its out side use either. After about an hour sitting on your lap the heat is to intense. The battery in my experience does not last more than an hour on full charge before it starts to adjust to low battery use and at that... (read more)

I find it hard to believe that this Toshiba Satellite Pro A60 laptop is sold as a new product. I have just been given one as a work unit, and I am very disappointed. It can't run more than 1 or 2 programs at once without stalling, crashing or hanging. Forget about running anything other than Microsoft Office unless you have the patience of a saint, or a lot of time on your hands. To put this in context, I have an old Dell laptop at home, a PIII with 256MB RAM, nearly 4 years old, and it... (read more)

Decided to spend a few days checking out the Toshiba Satellite Pro A60 before I wrote a review.
I went for the 14" screen as I wanted to save money in case I needed to upgrade to the 512 meg of ram.
Windows XP home is okay but not as good as XP Pro that I`m used to.
Battery life. I know it says three hours but unless you turn the screen off and don`t use it you`ll not get three hours. As mine will be plugged in at home, this doesn`t cause a problem, but if you are... (read more)
