My love hate relationship with Toshiba!

Toshiba were in my good books this week for hosting an interesting launch event for their new ultra-portable PC which was based around explorer David Hempleman-Adams plans to take one of the machines on a crazy ballooning adventure. All interesting stuff and I was suitable impressed by one, if not the, lightest laptop ever made – the R500.

Toshiba launches world's lightest laptop

However – my admiration for all things Tosh was shattered on Friday when during a very busy morning of furious content posting – my new Toshiba Satellite Pro U200 packed up on me – again. The cursed machine just freezes up – something that I have not experienced since the bad old days of Windows NT. I wouldn't mind but it has already been back to Toshiba once to have its motherboard replaced but the problems still persist. And I am not the only one, two or three other journos in CNET Networks UK have had the same model U200 and had the same problems – not the best piece of PR for Toshiba it has to be said.
