Comments about Toshiba Satellite A500 Series Black Notebook Computer:

This laptop is awesome. A little heavy but I guess I asked for it when I wanted an extended battery.The display is astonishing and it looks very sharp.The camera is pretty decent as well. My wife an I both love the back-lit keyboard.The only downside so far is the uncanny attraction towards fingerprints this baby has. We had it for about a month now and we didn't have any issues yet... knock on wood. About gaming... it plays great. Runs Modern Warfare 2 like a champ. If you want a great-all-around laptop, this one will not let you down. Great buy! Thanks ABT.[...]
