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

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. Despite dozens upon dozens of work and personal programs installed without a wipe since I bought her, she's still fast.
Summary: I bought one of these new from Best Buy almost two years ago when it was a new model after deciding that I couldn't get the level of productivity [for university] that I wanted from an Android tablet. I went to Best Buy because I was looking for a particular feel and experience from a laptop so I wanted to be able to put my hands on it before I bought it.
Summary: People who want faster, better, portable and extra durable, this laptop is not for you!! But again, the price doesn't justify what you're asking for. This laptop fulfills all its commitment for the price it sells for. It is ultra portable, faster for I3 processor, and great SSD. Yes, it is little flimsy but then what do you expect for the price??? You want portability with reasonable price. Here you go!! Toshiba has really got the concept here.
Summary: After 3 1/2 years -- I absolutely love this computer! I have worked with computers for nearly 30 years and I have high expectations regarding performance. My Ultrabook has not disappointed me. I have replaced the solid state hard drive for a larger one. I am not a gamer. I use the computer for administrative work and surfing the internet. I am not "rough" on a computer and I have found this one is plenty durable! I take it on the road often.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in Feb of 2012. I need the lightweight for work as I carry it on a daily basis. It is always in my briefcase with some manila file folders and on occasion with my portable printer. It has unfortunately been dropped at least once and I toss my briefcase into the car. I have never had an issue with the screen cracking or any other problems. I have even taken this on my numerous trips to Jamaica and Mexico.
Lightweight and powerful, battery life not as advertised but could be worse

Summary: I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase of my Z835-P370. I was hesitant about the screen due to the reviews online complaining about it being flimsy, but honestly it's not too bad. One peeve the screen does have is that the hinges are loose, so picking the notebook up swiftly will cause it to shut or open accordingly based on the current position of the hinges. Another less than stellar point is the keyboard.
Summary: At a fraction of a Macbook Air's price, this slim baby does all what I need to do on a laptop. It's so light and the fan noise issue has been fixed with new version of BIOS. The keyboard sucks but so what? I only paid 600 bucks for this! Although after upgrading to Windows 8 some of the original Toshiba software does not function properly but still, I love my Protege Z835.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in January and I must say it was the best money I ever spent on a laptop. As a full time college student it has gone in and out of my backpack, been dropped in my living room a couple times, and mishandled a few times even. Now granted I am treating it way better than I would say a tough book, but for how light it is and minimal materials for construction I am happy with the durability.
