Comment: I am user of Toshiba laptops more then 30 years. I started with T1000.
The Tecra R850 is the worst Toshiba laptop I ever met.
Keypad - simply unusable. The space bar short and works only if you press on the middle. The half sized arrow keys, PgUp, PgDn keys very unconvenient.
The Accupoint mouse is unusable. You can not use it without pressing the surrounding keys.
The screen resolution is very bad. You can see few cells only in Excel or few lines from your document.
I strongly suggest NOT TO BUY R850. It is a rubbish.
Good: very light, many battery, ...
Bad: the space bar
I have this computer for 1,5 years and it's a very good computer.
I have just a question for the other who have this computer :
when I press the space bar a bit on the side, the space isn't always do ...
Have you the same problem ???
Good: Nice screen, has a "joystick" mouse, you can turn the touch pad off easily
Bad: Keyboard is RUBBISH
Comment: Good desktop replacement, huge battery life, REALLY bad scrabble style keyboard - almost unusalbe!
