    Toshiba NB series

    During our move back we lost 7 brand new netbooks leaving us with just a trolley of 13. I've been given the go ahead to replace them but am having difficulty sourcing any!

    Anyone recommend somewhere that a school can use that would maybe have a bit of stock left? Suppliers i've asked are struggling to find any!!

    Good riddance to the horrid little things,

    We have Toshiba in next week to fix the hinges on all 300 of ours despite the fact they supposed to be RTB. They agreed that the logistics of collecting, packing, shipping, fixing, shipping, unpacking and re-distributing was a bit stupid and unworkable in a reasonable time frame.

    Not going to fix the crap mouse buttons that have fallen off a large number of them though.

    I've got 3 different models of that range. They get used daily and we haven't had any of those issues! O.o

    Oh did he indeed? ;-)

    Haha. They are a nice netbook. I liked them as for us (when in a school) they were rock solid.
