It's floppy drive is an external USB drive, but it is included with the laptop, you do not have to buy it separately. Check out Toshiba's site for more details. (www.toshiba.com)
But if i were you i would try to see about getting a Latitiude instead of an Inspiron, they are built sturdier
though they are a bit more expensive! Aslo check out thier factory outlet, decent deals there!
<< Tahnks Jejunum I am debating wether to build an XP 2000+ system or get a laptop, since i am going ot collage nect year i think the laptop will be the best solution.
if you're going to college next year, buy your laptop in the summer/fall. you don't need the portability right now, and you'll just be kicking yourself when you could've gotten a much better system for less. anyway if you're a gamer you'll need the latest hardware when you get into the dorms...he he
Yea but if i wait thinking i could save money then i will just get something better then. I think the only reason i am even thinking about a 2000+ setup is i am afaird i am not gonna be able to do stuff on the laptop that i cna on my desktop. Are there any AMD laptops with a good video card in them??
