I have realized that it is a high time to replace my old primitive laptop with a new one.
I will be using it more like a replacement for a desktop.
After some research, I found that Toshiba Satellite 2430 looks good. Anyhow, none of my friends have any experience with Toshiba models, and so couldn't get any feedback from them.
Any comments on Toshiba notebooks (Satellite 2430 model in particular -if you are familiar with this model)
You can look here for more details about this model.
It is priced at 1800 Euros.

I am using a Toshiba Satelite laptop, not 2430 though. I heard Sony and Dell are nicer. But I saw a couple of places rate Toshiba Satelite as best buy.

Thanks for the reply. How you feel about your laptop? Have you faced any problems with it?

Got it!
FIrst I purchased a Toshiba 2430-301 (Pentium 4 @ 2.66 GHz / 512 MB / 40GB). But the hard disk was making lot of noise. So, I went to get it replaced.
There I found Toshiba 2430-201 which was priced at 100 Euro more than the 301 model.
The 201 has 2.54 GHz instead of 2.66 GHz, but it had a DVD-burner. So I replaced my 301 with 201.
But the OS (Win XP) is in German, which is troubling me
I have English version of Windows ME and I'm planning to degrade to ME from XP.
Any suggestions? Is downgrading from XP to ME possible without formatting the hard disk?
Any idea about the comparability of drivers?

Just to compare brands, I have a Sony and I love it; however, from my experience they are prone to teething trouble. (Mine was purchased in Nov '01 and, since Aug '02, has spent a total of 12 weeks in the shop Turns out the problem was a bad connection between the memory and the MB; other people who have Sonys have had similar problems).
Whatever you do, buy a service plan on the laptop. I don't typically recommend it for other electronics (usually if it breaks, it's going to before the manufacturer's warrenty is up), but laptops go through such wear and tear that the extended service plan is worth it. (Mine sure was.)
