The deal is between the government, the supplier of these laptops and the LEA/schools, Toshiba sold the laptops to them and we don't deal with them. They are very difficult to deal with. For example, a laptop wasn't charging so we did a quick fault find by swapping out the power brick from one which worked. Phoned them up to inform them, asked to put it in an email, did so, get a reply asking us to check out the power by using the lead from another machine which we know has worked (and which we've already done) they eventually agree that the power supply is faulty and send a replacement five weeks later.

It's a deep shame that you have been treated in this way ,

I have a very good contact from within Toshiba and will gladly pass on your feedback if you pm me your details so they can have the opportunity to mabye discount any further purchases or alike ?

I too had poor experiences with Toshiba laptops. We had some Sat A2100's i think they were. No end of problems with the batteries.
