    Durability

    Having owned several Toshiba laptops and other products over the years, the one thing I can say for Toshiba over some other brands is that they make a very durable product. Some of their laptops that are NOT classified as rugged have held up better than some other manufacturers 'ruggedized' hardware. For this reason, I think we own one of the longest lasting tablets on the market. Like someone already said, most of us will likely just upgrade to newer technology before the Thrive quits.

    Oh thank you! That makes me feel so confident. I hope it lasts at least a couple of years. That's the reason I'm not convinced about the Galaxy or the iPad, they look and feel like a fragile lady. The Thrive is definitively the macho of tablets xD

    On battery life I read a few comments said to check the screen setting and the brightness of your screen could be big hog use.. I stay plugged in while on. I haven't used the battery by it's self much. I soon will see we have a trip planned so will see how battery life works for us.

    The battery life with depend on which apps are running and which wireless services you have active (wifi, Bluetooth). It will also vary depending on how much of that time the screen if on and how bright you have it set.

    I've been amazed at the life of the battery. I keep both wifi and BT on all the time, have the screen set for ~75% on the slider with auto brightness checked on. I also have it set to turn off the screen after two minutes of inactivity. I have never fully discharged the battery, but have used it for hours and expected the battery to nearly discharge only to notice it's at ~50%.

    I bought a spare battery to use when I don't have access to AC power. I actually have not used it yet.

    Since you're new to the Thrive, check out the page I created with Amazon links to all the accessories I bought with mini-reviews of each. You can see it in my signature below.

    I agree toshiba makes good products. I've owned one of their laptops about 5 years now and it still runs great. I almost went with the Samsung Galaxy not knowing that Toshiba had a tablet in the market. Thank goodness I found this forum before making my purchase. We should get plenty of good years with our tt. Mine is protected with a moko case most of the time. I also have a bobj case with makes it feel really sturdy in the hands.

    March 2003 issue, maybe March 2004, Satelite A75 laptop. The best computer ever made. Actually there was some issue early on about bad ground connection and Toshiba replaced something at no charge. No bug fixes, they did it right the first time around. And it even has a parallel port which by now nobody even knows what it might be, yet it's so useful for various gadgets
    I think Thrive will survive a looooong, loooong time.

    I bought mine the day.......no, 10 minutes after it came out and it's only gotten better. No issues no damage no problems. It just works. I don't notice any loss in battery life yet and I use it every day. I did do a factory reset once after installing a few hundred apps, it started to get a bit sluggish after a few months and had a long boot time. But after that it's better than new with all the updates. After 4.0 it might even get better. I've had several toshiba laptops and never had an issue.

    Actually it does have slightly less battery life than some of the other "main" Android Tablets, but that by itself doesn't bother me when it couples with everything else.
