I came across the site via a search for my model. I've yet to get it to determine the full extent of condition, but it is a Toshiba Satellite 2435 S255. Looking at various online reviews, several problem areas have been pointed out, along with the fact, there are a number of problem free units and mixed feelings regarding Toshiba's service as well.
Since the machine is two years old, it's harder to find replacement parts and info that's upto date, however, it does have credible specs to be active still for many uses.
My main question for ideas about places to find HDD, memory and disc drives for the system, adapters and batteries at the lowest prices, and mods that are most useful. I'm thinking of getting the cooling pad that allows bottom vented units additional aid in cooling. I already read one thread suggesting cleaning the areas around the bottom fans to remove any dust/lint build up that can cause shutdowns in operation.
Also, as a relative newb to this type of site, hoping to expand my PC knowledge...what is "IT"? Not to sound too stupid, I've been a casual PC user since 2000/2001 with my eMachine eTower 700...my first.
As background, I started in the early 1980s on many Apple II machines
