Great computer

ampcrank, Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: I think this computer is great. It's lightweight, portable, battery life is good, screen resolution is good. It rarely freezes up, it's super-quick, has good video handling. The only thing I don't like about it is the sound quality coming from the speakers and the touchpad is a little unresponsive...

Lightweight, Great Portability

Jeffrey A. Vanderhoff "jkvand", Amazon
28 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to upgrade from my Dell Mini 9, which I liked for its portability but disliked for its lack of a CD drive. The Toshiba Portege 705 is wonderful because it is small and easily portable, but also has a CD/DVD drive, making it not only ultraportable but also ultrafunctional for my needs.

Broken screen in a month...but still a fast and light laptop 2 yrs later

J. Cammarano, Amazon
17 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop for travel. It has great features and is very light. I was happy for the first 28 days and then the screen cracked. I called Toshiba customer support, and the person was polite, but tried to suggest that I was responsible for it cracking.

No problem laptop

Mudge Malog "ghostofandy", Amazon

  • Summary: I used to go with the cheap HP/Dell laptops. But this time I decided to chance it and go with a nicer model and I couldn't be happier. I was hesitant to spend so much on a laptop, but Consumer Reports & cnet.com both rank this Toshiba as the best laptop on the market (excluding Macs).

Great lil 'puter

Seeqer, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: Has exactly what you want and none of what you don't. Light, compact, and powerful. Not loaded up with bloat-ware either. Not a computer to get if you're really into gaming, but has all the power you need for pretty much anything else you need and is only a little bigger & heavier than a net-book.

Size matters

Ian M. Sheffield "Eener3000", Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: I agree with those who say the keyboard is a little weird at first, but it took me little time to get used to it. I also agree that you should not buy this machine here since I just picked mine up at Best Buy for $699.99 with the added convenience of being able to take it back to them should...

watch the price

Amazon Customer "atomicvolcano", Amazon
9 November 2010
  • Summary: This looks like a great laptop and is on my list to possibly buy soon. What I don't understand is, Why does Best Buy has this exact laptop for almost 300 dollars less than Amazon? Watch out for the sticker price.
