2nd Gen i3 with HD 3000 Graphics, not that Hot
If you're looking for a Notebook to bring around with you to like say School/Work/Trips, 17" is pretty heavy. Been there and done that, was not a great experience. If it's a Desktop Replacement and you'll be leaving it at home 17" won't matter but there should be better deals in the future, I wouldn't want to spend that much money on a Notebook with those Specs. If you're looking for Portable Notebook to bring around, I'd suggest 15" and lower, some people might even say 15" is heavy for them and go for 14" and smaller.
If you're in need of a Notebook right now, I'd take a look at this one from CC. No Online Stock but there are a few that can be found In Store. Intel 3rd Gen i5 with HD 4000 Graphics for $30 More, has the same amount of RAM and 140GB less HDD space, but ideally you'd want to invest in a SSD.
If you aren't in need of one right now, I'd wait for Boxing Day/Week and see what deals they have. Were some good deals this past Cyber Monday but they're either all Sold Out or back to normal price

At CC, the next closest 17" unit is $499 with.... a B950. $569 gets you a i3-3110 with less RAM, less HDD, etc. The 15" unit you link to is out of stock, and if weight is your issue, then 5.4 vs 5.95lbs really doesn't matter. That's about the difference of what an iPhone 4 with case weighs. If that really breaks your day, there's an issue.
So at $469 compared to $569 or more, it's a pretty good deal no? Just because YOU don't like 17" laptops, doesn't make it bad.

Let's take a look at what I said, I'll Bold the things I think you missed...
I suggested the 15" notebook to OP if he was looking for a Portable Notebook. I even took the extra step and linked one that was decently priced for the specs it had. Yes it's Sold Out Online but it's available for purchase In Store.
Again I'd like to point out that I said if OP wasn't looking or a notebook right now, it's better to wait for Boxing Day/Week to see what deals can be found...
PS. As a user of a 15" notebook for the past year, I don't care what the 17" market brings. If the OP isn't looking for a 15" unit, then it's a fact that it isn't a great deal. I've been keeping an eye out for people who want the same. Most things in this price point offer much more than the specs on this Toshiba. If you're looking for a "great multimedia machine", invest in an External Monitor or TV with a better resolution screen... Hope your day gets better~
