Toshiba laptops have a well-deserved reputation for being some of the best laptops in the world. They are very sturdily built. If you drop one, it won't usually break, nor will they break through normal wear and tear like cheap Dells can - Toshibas don't get cracked cases and have keys fall off the keyboard, and if they ever did then Toshiba would fix it very quickly. Secondly, Toshiba laptops are very light. I have one and i like it so far.
