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

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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Summary: The performance and battery life are very good. One annoying thing is that the mouse pad buttons are very loud when you click them, so your significant other might not have very happy if you try to use it in bad:)
Summary: Since I don't play game much, the notebook is competent for all that I am doing right now. Take into account its size, I apprechiate its capability to expand my work by facilities it is equiped, usb 2.0, esata, usb 3.0, vga, the CD rom, the card reader...while it is no heavier than some ultrabooks.
