Summary

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Works with addition of USB wireless LAN and wireless mouse but not able to support hardware virtualisation (e.g for VirtualBox) because of crippled BIOS. I wish I had researched Toshiba's attitude to Linux before buying one.

I bought a cheap Toshiba in about 2008 and it worked very well with Linux. Th C50D-C022 I bought seems to have decent hardware but it's let down by a crippled BIOS and driver compatibility issues.
