I loved it for two years: then it died

Dan Bear "Dan", Amazon

  • 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.

Cool laptop with a few minor issues

B. Le, Amazon
14 March 2012
  • Summary: what initially got me into the portege series was the aesthetic. it has a very simple and clean look.

Nice laptop with a few key features missing

TheCADman99, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: No bluetooth? Really? A BT dongle is the size of your thumbnail, and less than $10, and they couldn't include it internally? Come on Toshiba, $15 phones have bluetooth! Going from my goliath Vostro 1700 was a big change.

Would be a 5 star review but for dishonesty on Toshiba's part

GojiraST, Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a great laptop, thin, light, powerful. Sure it's missing a few higher end features like built-in bluetooth (I would rather have had that than the useless "wireless HDMI" feature), but overall the feature set is good. HOWEVER...

USB Problem

R. Youngquist, Amazon
8 May 2011
  • Summary: Has some of the best specs for a i5 2nd gen. laptop. Very light weight. Fast in all operations. After a couple of days use the usb port on the right side would go to sleep and was inoperative until computer was rebooted.
