Summary: My daughter has this model and is very pleased with it. When I bought a Lenovo that had Windows 8, I hated it...Windows 8, that is. I wanted a faster computer and still with Windows 7, so I decided to purchased a refurbished Toshiba Portege. After I put the correct Windows 7 for Toshiba computers, it has worked really well. I love the long battery life and lightweight, feels almost like my tablet!
Summary: I have this laptop for one year and it's working great. I would have given this 5 starts if it have a keyboard that light up. The sound that fan makes is kind of loud compare to other laptops but it stills does the job. I bought this laptop for everyday use and because it's not as heavy as other laptops.
Summary: I bought this because I was looking for a computer that I could tuck into a diaper bag and take to the cafe while my baby enjoyed a stroller nap. As such, my technical needs are minimal - I require a light machine with superb battery life for browsing the web, video chatting, and using a few consumer applications. This machine has met all of those needs commendably.
Summary: My wife loves the easy carry, light weight of this laptop. In addition the features make it a great deal for the price. It might not stand up to the heavy, constant abuse that a college student might inflict, but for 8 to 10 airline flights a year it is perfect. Great picture, quick start-up, and more features than my more expensive Sony. Con: Terrible speakers.
Summary: I purchased this computer for my wife about a year ago. We have been using Toshiba laptops for about 5 years, and since her computer was a little out of date for want she needed to do we decided to buy a new one. I looked at several options and finally came across this Toshiba. Actually, I didn't buy it from Amazon - but found a floor model at a local chain which they wanted to give me a great discount on, so I bought it.
Summary: This laptop is great in all the specs, works very fast, but I didn't like the build quality of it. It wasn't blue either. The downfall was that it doesn't have backlit keaboard. So I went with sony vaio instead. Amazon was great like always.
Summary: This is quite a good laptop - not top end but good enough for most things. I haven't quite figured out the USB charging gizmo which seems to conflict with sleep mode - so I pull out the USB cable to the externals. I did the BIOS update but that did not seem to help. Other than that - it's not too bulky for travel and does not weigh that much more than my netbook!
Summary: I've had my new Toshiba for about 3 weeks now and am enjoying it, similar to the way I enjoyed my last Toshiba. This computer is light and quick, and the battery life is great, at least so far. My one complaint is the keyboard- the mouse is kind of sticky and very loud when clicked. Of course, you can use more a touch-click method, but that took some getting used to for me. Plus, certain keys get stuck at times. Other than that, though, I like it so far!
