Really?  What kind of bad experiences?

If someone asked me for a laptop brand suggestion, my first choice
would be Toshiba, especially in Japan [they're rarer outside of
Japan].  I've owned or used 3 and none of them failed on me.  The two
that I still own still run, even the on I purchased in the late 90s.
Their batteries no longer charge and have long been recycled...but
that happens with any laptop.

I recall one Japanese person who questioned why I own a Toshiba laptop
because they supposedly break after the warranty.  So it seems many
others have also had bad experiences with Toshiba...
