The Toshiba Satellite M30-S730

The S730 is Toshiba's basic M30 model over here in Malaysia. From what I can tell, it is the same as the American S309 model. The other M30 model available here is the S731 which is equivalent to the M35.

Of course, as mentioned earlier, there is very little difference between the top model and the basic model in Toshiba's M30/35 line. In the local line-up, the S731 differs only in its more powerful 1.6GHz Pentium M processor, a larger 60GB hard disk and 64MB of graphics memory. Other than that, it is indistinguishable from the S730.

We will explore each and every facet of this notebook in the following pages but first, let's check out its specifications.
