Only specific models in the Toshiba Qosmio line support dual hard drives. See the recommendations below for two models, one with twin 500GB drives, and the other with 750GB and 1TB drives.

This model doesn't have a DVI output but does have HDMI. Simply use a cable like the one below to connect from the HDMI in the computer to a DVI device.

answer 2
The L875-S7208 uses Toshiba's Premium keyboard, which is not backlit.

When looking at the laptops on Best Buy's site, if you look at the left side of the screen, you'll see filters where you can choose many facets of your computer. Click on "Toshiba" and a little further down click "Backlit Keyboard", and you can check out the seven models Best Buy is currently selling with that feature.

Windows 8 is planned for release on October 26th.

Any Windows 7 PC purchased between June 2, 2012 and January 31, 2013 is eligible for a $14.99 Windows 8 upgrade, so you would be able to upgrade for minimal cost.

This is posted for the L875 series: "For high-resolution video chats, you'll appreciate the 1 megapixel HD webcam."

Source -- http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/series/Satellite-L875-series/1122223/

So, my assumption is that for the L875-S7208, the spec is the same. But if you need to know for certain I suggest you call Toshiba tech support at 1-800-457-7777. I think it is 24/7 and in the Philippines. Of course, you can always add an aftermarket webcam with the specs you like :)

This is a good question. The short answer is "not really." What you get is "MS Office 2010 Starter" a version with reduced functionality (clever marketing words). What this means is that when you start Office for the first time you will see 3 choices. 1) Activate a license, if you have one. 2) Go online to purchase a license. 3) Use the watered down version which continuously displays advertisement as you use it. I opted for installing my long ago purchased Office 2007 disc and called it good.

answer 2
The laptop comes with MS Office Starter installed. This gives you reduced functionality versions of Word and Excel that include advertising.

For Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, you can purchase the Product Key Card that will activate MS Office Professional 2010, or MS Office Home and Business 2010.

See below for the Product Key Cards.

Installing Memory has always been considered to be a user friendly task. If unfamiliar, just search a few youtube videos. Make sure you buy the right type, because that is generally where the confusion starts. Crucial.com has an excellent scanning tool.
