Toshiba Satellite 5105A last minute emergency yesterday forced us at Behavior to run out and purchase two laptops for immediate use. I’ve been kind of sour on Wintel laptops for a while, and I was reminded of why. The really well-designed ones, like Sony’s VAIO line, are miserably overpriced under-performers. The ones with great specs and that can actually hold their own in a production environment, like the Toshiba Satellite 5105s that we bought yesterday, are hideous disasters of industrial design. Design loses again.
