    I just got a new laptop Friday, and though i am not accustomed to the touchpad (what it calls a mouse pad), i am really digging it.

    It's a Toshiba Satellite L555D (S7910) and i got it so i could use a portable magnifier to see the boards in my classes. the magnifier works like a video camera and i can adjust contrast until i can see the screen. also, I can take snapshots (great for formulas and heavy note taking.

    FYI: I finished a math and a computer class without ever reading the board- had to just listen and get the "gist" of what was being posted. So this laptop combo was a godsend.

    the best part is that the magnifier works up to 72x and i have to wait until Thursday or Friday before i can take some TF pics with it. lighting in here is terrible, but i can fix that.
    Trust me, I zoomed in from 8 feet away and could tell you that my G1 Blades hadn't shaved!
    anyway, here's the specs. Tell me what ya think!
