Had to have this replaced twice!

  • Excerpt: I was really excited when Toshiba came out with this mini notebook. We have had Toshiba televisions and have always been very impressed with the quality, but had never tried a computer. I was extremely disappointed in this notebook. I was working on a slide show for my daughter's graduation and the computer froze up and wouldn't let me do anything. I returned it to the place I bought it and was told that to fix it would cost me nearly as much as to purchase another one.

Came w/Wrong Windows Version

Walmart
13 June 2010
  • Summary: I specifically purchased this mini because it came with Windows XP, along with other things I was looking for. Price was decent, but when I opened it I discovered it actually came with the new Windows 7 version. I was furious! I am disabled and can't get out of my house at times so was unable to return this to the store, but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have had any laptop with an older vesion of windows anyway.

Too slow!

  • Summary: I wanted to like it SO badly...its such a good looking machine but its a little SLOW! Plus with the small screen it doesnt just decrease the size of your screen it actually cuts part of your screen off. Its SO frustrating to try and read your email because you can only view like 2 inches of the screen to read a message. The whole top half of the screen is taken up by the google toolbar & ads from internet explorer! Also..

User Review

  • Summary: While the machine itself is better than my first netbook, it falls short in performance with Windows 7 Starter. Being unable to customise my background was something I thought I wouldn't mind as long as it's performance isn't hindered too much. Lets start with a few things: General Performance: This machine can run games such as Aion and the rumours of Starter limiting the number of open programs isn't true.
  • Pros: Hardware for it's time was good and the battery life is great. Looks good too.
  • Cons: The good is outweighed by the laggy performance of Windows 7 Starter. Also had problems with the sound playback, typing lag not to mention it's loaded with Toshiba bloat ware.
