You get what you pay for

  • Summary: I was quite pleased with my Toshiba, I've been using it since May 2012 and didn't have too many problems. All the disadvantages such as flimsy screen etc. were negated by the excellent battery life, decent performance, and such nice features as back-lit keyboard and SSD.

Great ultrabook if you don't type a lot.

  • Summary: A lot of great things about this laptop. It's light, compact, powerful and dependable. I was warned against the flexible monitor but that has done well. The issue is the flexible keyboard and specifically the space key. I have had to edit this post 17 times so far.

motherboard quit!

S. Lewis, Amazon

  • Summary: Laptop worked fine, then became non-responsive. System repair wouldn't work; motherboard couldn't read hard drive. Paid $ 750 for the unit, and it was used very little. Lasted less than two years. I expect more for my money.

I've had this laptop for 2 years, and she's still kicking and fast!

Em Fox, Amazon

  • Summary: I've shopped around for laptops recently, and it's not worth it to me to replace my Toshiba. This girl is still the lightest, most portable workhorse I can find. She's sturdy, for her 2.5 pounds -- she's been lugged all over the country without a single problem to show for it.

You'll regret buying this laptop!

  • Summary: Purchased this laptop 15 months ago from Best Buy for $800. Worked well for nearly a year when it stopped working. Told BB thought the hard drive no longer worked. BB said they'd never had one with a hard drive issue.

Don't do it!

SMcD, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Toshiba Portege is flimsy. The keyboard begins to break up from underneath. I was experiencing stuck keys and strange problems (the control key was sticking). They needed to replace the keyboard because the original had cracked into powder and caused the keys to stick.

The SSD died in less than 2 years

  • Summary: Seriously!?? Doesn't the fact these things have no moving parts making them very, very dependable? Disappointed to say the least; Going to cost a buck and a half to replace it myself, plus the hassle of reloading software. Loved the laptop...fast, great screen, fast boot, ...

Exceptionally light weight, long battery life, great travel machine.

tunamooner, Ebay

  • Summary: This is the second one of these I've purchased. I love how light it is, how long the battery lasts, and the "instant on" effect due to the solid state drive. Given all those benefits, the performance and durability have been all I need. It also has a sleek, thin look. Think Mac Air for Windows.

Good, but issues down the road...

Ann, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this laptop in early 2012, so I've had it for nearly two years. It just started giving me trouble. When I attempt to turn it on after hibernation, it often freezes on the black "Toshiba" screen, or simply begins to turn on and then stops.
