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.
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: 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.
After 1 year it is still working perfectly, great machine.

Summary: This computer has been a God-send for me. It was this or go to Apple, and I made the right choice. I have 5 kids and they are on it constantly... including my 6 year old. I take it with me, it works. I spill a little coffee on it, it works. It's super light, very fast with the SSD drive, and you get a full keyboard. It's basically the size of a tablet but gives you all the features of a regular laptop. For me, it's the perfect portable computer.
Summary: You gotta love this laptop! I spilled a whole cup of coffee onto this and it went blank. I froze and put it aside for a week praying daily. Plugged it in 5 minutes ago sure it would need a new motherboard but-whoa- it booted right up. Wiped off the sticky and I'm running again. This is the coolest. It runs really fast. It never had given me any trouble in the past and I expect more of the same. Get this puppy. You won't regret it.
Summary: This is an incredible machine, fast, lightweight, ultra sleek, includes everything desirable in a laptop, love the lighted keyboard. Only 2 drawbacks (1) screen like most laptops is delicately fragile but this one even more so than most. (2) Harddrive is not very large. This laptop is so awesome that when my original was stolen, 3 months later I bought the same one to replace it.
Summary: I have been looking for a super thin laptop or netbook for work and grad school. I've been dragging around my Dell laptop which is great but it's quite big and heavy, and I'm always trying to remember to bring it to work or bring it back home. I need something that uses Word and PowerPoint, primarily, and that hooks to a projector. I leave all the fancy stuff to my main home computers. So I considerd a netbook, but they don't always have the capabilities I need.
Summary: I actually purchased both the Toshiba Z830 and the Asus UX31 so I could decide for myself which one I liked the best. Both come with a 128GB solid-state hard drive and 4GB RAM. The Asus has an i5 processor while the Toshiba (which costs $100-200 less) has an i3 processor. Here's what I liked and what I didn't like: Appearance The Asus with its spiral design is gorgeous. The Toshiba is boring gun-metal gray with sharp corners.
