I am looking into a Toshiba Satellite A100-R007 (PSAARA-05R007), which I saw at Harvey Norman.
I have the basic specs:
Core 2 Duo T7400
GeForce Go 7600 256MB
DVD+RW Supermulti Drive
Vista Home Premium

But I have not been unable to find any specs at all on the net.  All I have found that it even exists is the model number on an australian site selling spare parts for it.  I have searched and the US and OZ subsites, but no mention of it whatsoever.  It could possibly be an Australian model, as I saw it at Harvey Norman.

I am wanting to find more detailed specs (ie 256MB dedicated or total shared video ram?, 533 or 667MHz RAM?, etc).

If anyone knows how I could find out more, or if anyone could shed some light on the model numbers (if there is any logical sequence) it would be much appreciated.

The R007 was a Harvey Norman customised model.  I went in there on thursday night, and the salesman couldn't find any more specs on it, nor could he tell me anything more about it.

But it didn't matter in the end, because Harvey Norman weren't willing to do any cash discounts for me, as they had an interest free deal on.

They were not even willing to match the lower price for another model, the A100/7007, that I was interested in.  They had it for 2699, but Noel Leeming and Bond and Bond both had a special just started bringing it down to 2299.

So I ended up buying the 7007 from Noel Leeming, and they even gave me a discount for paying cash, as well as big discounts on a RAM upgrade and external HDD.
