“Briliant laptop”

Written on: 07/05/2012 by sweep29 (1 review written)

Had this laptop from new in 2004 and still using it today. Never had any trouble with it (touch wood) and how many laptop vendors can match that? Well done Toshiba!… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2010

Use a cooling pad to avoid overheat or if you don't have it put something at the back to elevate your notebook make to have a ventilation. It's a matter of how you are going to take good care of your stuff rather than abusing it. OS normally crashes so be patient to re-install it and make sure to install genuine and stable system, of course, your protection for your system. It's indeed very rare to find a 3.2GHz processor notebook nowadays which has a good value for money. The only issue I have… Read Full Review

“It's incredibly slow. ”

Written on: 30/08/2008

It's incredibly slow.
Always overheating, consequently knocking off.
Problems with the ati-2dvag.
Battery lasts for an average of 30 mins.
And many more in my experience can be added too many to list.
Bought it 3 1/2 years ago and it wasn't worth the money. I've had problems with it from day 1 and wouldn't recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

I agree with this review because I have an a60 Toshiba and presently it is giving me alot of troubles trying to format the system and install new OS. The Problem is that it's refusing to accept any OS including Vista. Infact I could only format the HDD and made the system to boot to MS Dos.

Written on: 22/12/2005 by theavens2005 (1 review written)

I have been the owner of a Toshiba Equium A60 Laptop for about a year now (2004, 2005). I am currently sixteen, and I have used it non-stop for schoolwork and the occasional game. Last year I went to PC World UK in the hope of getting a shiny HP notebook PC, but came back with a really great deal. PC World had reduced the Equium A60 from £999.99 to £549.99 which was fantastic for me, as I am (always) on a budget. I got it home and opened up the peacock blue lid which saw me look for the first… Read Full Review

Toshiba Equium A60: Gone are the days when Toshiba was the undisputed king of the laptops (well...some 10 years back).

Seems to me some guy with a soft touch for desktops got the upper hand in the company and is cloning some desktop features on laptop. These features are: size & processor fan… Read Full Review

Davinciapple's Response to 191060_paulbcohen's Review

Written on: 19/07/2005

I recently purchased one of these, it's not that noisy, the screen is nice and it does everything I wanted it too, the wireless works great and the wireless software that comes with it makes it simple to setup. Fair enough it's not the thinest laptop but it's solid, personally I think it's a good buy.
