Question about Toshiba Portege 7100 Notebook
I just orderd a Toshiba Portege 7100 off ebay for a friend and tryed to look for the information on Toshiba.com but they don't have the model number 7100. The only one close to it was a 7200, and I did a google image search and they both look the same. Does the 7100 have WiFi built in and what is the Max RAM limit for it? All it said on ebay was a Intel Pentium III. I don't know what year it was made but I guess in 2000 or 2001. IBM's 2001 ThinkPad T23 Pentium III laptop has WiFi built in and woundering if this 7100 does aswell. I was also going to install Windows Vista Home Basic on it. Im sure it could run under a Pentium III since I got Windows XP Home running on a 1996 IBM ThinkPad 560 Pentium I 120MHz and it ran pretty fast. And No I have not gotten the laptop in from the mail yet, So I can't tell what the year and Processor speed is. Should come in tomorrow.
The Tobshiba Portege 7100 does not have a wifi. Here are the spec's.
If you install vista the notebook it will not run.
There is not support through Toshiba as you have all ready noticed. No manual. The Portege 7100 was designed to run windows 98. You might get away with installing Win XP but not Vista. Sorry!

They should be the same the close number just means that they revised something... most laptops have builtin wi fi but if it doesnt just buy a cheapie usb or pc slot card! I would NOT reccomend that you install windows vista on your pc.....there are still yet too many problems with them and you will have A VERY hard time getting drivers that are compatible
as far as the rest of the specs... ask the seller! they should know or see if it says on the ebay auction page
