so light it is hard to believe

alelo, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this about two years ago and it is still going just fine (even with intense use). I still cannot believe how light this thing is. When I was pulling it out of the box it actually almost slipped out of my hand because I used way too much force (expecting something much heavier). Overall a good buy for someone that feels the need to bring his/her laptop everywhere.

I loved it for two years: then it died

Dan Bear "Dan", Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: This was a great laptop for the money but it died after 23 months. It only had a one year warranty. I bought something to replace it that had a much longer warranty but costs about 75% more. Given that my job depends on my computer and it takes so long to get all my software installed, I felt like it was worth it. If this laptop had lasted 3 years or so ( the average replacement rate for me) this would have been the best buy laptop I had ever bought.

Light but NOT durable

sbaer, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: I mostly use this computer at home rarely take it with me to a class, presentations etc. The computer leaves my house 1-2 times per month and otherwise doesn't get moved around much. Despite light use, the screen broke within a year- turned it on and the screen was solid white. Luckily it was still under warranty so the repair was free. However, it just broke again. The replacement screen is $150 plus labor.

Light and very portable.

Siale, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: My wife takes this everywhere with her, we have now had it for two years and it is still running powerful and yours can too with the right/regular maintenance. The battery life is good and the charger does not over heat like some of the other Toshiba chargers.

Very disappointed...

Tiffany D. Martin, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: I had this laptop for 23 months and it quit working altogether. I didn't receive any warning so I'm not sure if it was the battery or power adapter. It always ran slow and usually took an extremely to connect to the internet. I had a Dell prior to this laptop so I have learned my lesson never to get a Toshiba again. I had heard good things about Toshiba laptops so maybe I just got a bad one, but it was an expensive lesson.

Nothing but problems

  • Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this product. The power source did not stay connected, the battery dies quickly for no reason, and the customer service is extremely disappointing when it comes to fixing this.

Why can't more manufacturers make a notebook like Toshiba?

Renbutsu, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: To me this Toshiba has more positives than negatives. I know many complain about the reflective screen, and I've seen reviews about the less than ideal heatsink and heat removal, but I have owned this model for a while now and I haven't had much issues with it. I love the weight of it, hard to find another that is in the same weight category AND has a built-in dvd writer.
