    TOSHIBA A305-S6843
    Well I am a littler nervous because I bought this computer. It seemed like a unbelievable good deal but I have found no reviews about it any where not even of the Toshiba or Best Buy web site.

    My concern is the 64Bit. I understand it is coming of age but will I have conflict with all my software. Will I have to replace it with compatible software? I am finding most of my printer and mouse drivers ar available in Vista 64bit

    SOFTWARE!
    GRAW
    Google Earth
    Norton 360
    Blackberry desktop manager
    MS Media Player
    Roxio 10
    Maxtor 1-touch HD for Back Up
    Seagate HD for back UP

    I am sure I bought a Porsha 911 but I am use to a Ford Pinto. But a good deal can go bad if I have to replace all the software I use. Please take a look and tell me the pros and cons. I have not opened it yet so I can still return it. Hover I want a laptop that rocks, does this one?

    I bought it at Best Buy in Nashville. But it is hard to find because the release date is April the 6th. Most of the stores only had a display model but some of the stores had 1 or two in the back. I had the Nashville Best Buy store call around and they found on in Bowling Green KY. I picked it up there.

    If it doesn't have the Vista 64-bit version, then you would have the 32-bit version and you don't need to worry about anything. You can only install 64-bit programs on a 64-bit OS
