I bought a Toshiba Laptop less then a year ago. The left click botton was loose and I asked my computer guy to take a look at it.
He said the plastic connection, inside the computer was broken and sent it to Toshiba, because it was still under warranty. Toshiba said it would not honor the warranty because it was "normal usage damage." I said, "So your telling me you make an inferior product that can break within one year and will not cover it under warranty?" David, at Toshiba's Consumer Relations said, "yes." But they will repair it for $425.00!!!!! Almost half the price of the laptop. David explained that $425.00 is their flat rate for ANY repair.
Don't buy a Toshiba if you plan on using it normally. My friend purchased an Intel, at the same time from Best Buy and his warranty covers repairs even if you throw it against a wall.
