Comment: Toshiba Qosmio (Score 0) 300

If you're looking at the Toshiba Qosmio, stop. It is a great, nice laptop.. but it is bulky and heavy. It does have a dedicated numeric keypad but as you noticed -- it's very plastic-y feeling and definitely wouldn't hold up to any amount of daily usage..

So yeah, heads up -- avoid the Qosmio line!

In the study, two rhesus macaque monkeys learned to put up to 18 photos on an ATM-like touch screen in a row. 'The monkeys did much better on the first three days when they had the help than when they didn't, but on the test day, it completely reversed.'"
