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.

Hi Roberta. Welcome to Geeks to Go. Ah yes, purchasing decisions are always a challenge. I am sorry I don't have any personal experience with the particular laptop you are asking about. I have relied on google searches and reading all of the relevant information I could find when I am considering making purchases. I usually find all kinds of reviews, customer ratings when I embark on this kind of journey. Give that a try. I wouldn't worry too much about the unit being phased out. I would make sure it comes with a new computer warranty (usually you get one year). I have to say the price seems good. Good luck! I have learned that by the time I pay for a computer it is already obsolete (faster better ones are always available, for a PRICE!). The important thing, it has to meet your needs!
