Question

Is the Toshiba Protege's heat sink made of copper?

I have seen disassemblys which show an aluminium heat sink not a copper one which Toshiba states on their website. Please answer truthfully since it's either this laptop or a comparable Sony laptop.

The heat sink and piping have changed to copper (from R700). But, the cooling fins have remained aluminum.

You would need to purchase two 4GB chips and replace the two 2GB chips that come in the laptop. Make sure you get DDR3 memory. You can use the Best Buy memory finder to find memory they have available:

Question

extended warranty

Can I purchase an extended warranty from Toshiba if I buy R835-P70 from Best Buy? I'd prefer that over Geek Squad protection.
