    It's here!!!

    Toshiba just today made public their new dothan-based notebook, the Tecra M2-S730. The S-730 features the new dothan 725 chip rated at 1.6 mhz, and the L2 cache is doubled to 2mb as compared to the Pentium M chips.

    I've been waiting for the "perfect laptop" for a year or so now, and the new S-730 fills that bill very well. Basics are: 60GB hard drive, 512mb RAM, DVD/CD combo drive, firewire, USB 2.0, 802.11 g intelpro wireless, 64bit graphics, gigabite ethernet, etc.

    This week the Toshiba website is offering free shipping on all laptops, as well as a free Epson color printer (after rebate). Also on sale is their wonderful "System Guard" package, which covers the original owner from any accidental damage for the length of the warranty!! The S-730 already comes with a 3 year international factory warranty, and for $99 you can add the System Guard coverage for the full 3 years--a very, very wise investment for a fragile mobile computer!!

    All in all, this machine has everything that I wanted, and after several months of indecision between the IBM Thinkpad T-41/42, the Fujitsu S series, and the Toshiba Tecra, this new model made my decision very easy, and I ordered mine today!!
