Greetings.--I'm looking for a mid-range laptop that will be used for writing/editing /freelancing work (that means I mainly use Word) and could double as a decent entertainment system (want decent sound and good screen quality for viewing DVDs). There's a Toshiba M35x-S329 on sale at my local computer store for $989. It's claimed as open box/demo model, but not refurbished. The system seems to meet my specifications and I just subjectively like the look and feel of Toshiba models. I gather this system is being discounted because this particular model is being phased out. Since I have a modest budget, it might make sense to buy it, but I want to know if anyone knows about this model--is there some reason it's being discontinued? Do you recommend I buy a model like this or will it make it difficult in the future--for example, getting replacement parts? Any other laptop brands/models you recommend for my needs? Thanks very much.
