6 years and still going

m9999, Amazon
16 January 2015
  • Summary: I have owned my Toshiba Satellite for 6 years now. It's still working well after ~very~ heavy usage. I've used it throughout college where I carried it back and forth for 4 years and used it daily with graphics programs (i.e. Photoshop & the rest of the Adobe Suite, Maya, etc.) I am an artist by profession, and I use a Wacom tablet on it regularly. It has also survived traveling 8-10 times a year for 4 years on a plane.

Toshiba stinks

michael casey, Amazon
4 January 2015
  • Summary: I have had this thing for 4 years. I spent like $800 on it. It cannot keep itself from over heating. I cannot stream a movie and surf the web without it over heating. I have a fan below it and a fan behind it and it still over heats and shuts off. I will NEVER buy another Toshiba product. Save yourself head ache and money and buy an HP laptop.

  • Summary: The price was reasonable and the service was excellent but I've had issues with the graphics card - it has trouble handling the multitude of pop-up ads I encounter when moving from page to page.

  • Summary: The computer wasn't a 100 percent. One usb port doesn't work, the cd doesn't eject by its self. Disappointed with the inaccurate description.

nice computer

Travis Filzen, Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: I've had this laptop since 2010. I have used it for countless hours of web surfing and it has worked great and loads fast. I've used big programs like Ableton Live to record and produce music and I've used photo editing software and it has never had problems handling large programs. The only issue I've had with it is the battery is starting to go, but that's also expected after 3 years, I'll just get a new battery and I'll be good to go.

It's not that bad in late 2013

Kevin Childress, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: I don't know if this computer will ever be back in stock, but I'm writing this for anyone who may buy a used one. For me, it's a great laptop. I've had it since April 2010 and it is still going strong. Back then it was going for $1000. For something that existed before the ultrabook world, the laptop size wasn't a negative. As we approach the end of 2013, this laptop is really starting to show its age.

Terrible, Terrible laptop. Don't buy Toshiba.

Nader, Amazon
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I've had this laptop since March 2010, and I have regretted ever since. This laptop has a very well-known and well documented overheating problem. If you're lucky, you won't start feeling it until a year and a half. I have read my reports of that issue propping up much earlier though. This thing has a terrible cooling system for a massive heat producing GPU and i7 intel processor. You will get crashes. You will get thermal shut downs.
