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.
Summary: Have been using Toshiba products for a while and have had good success. but this Laptop has issues that Toshiba knows about. Had this 2months and Twice the video just suddenly blacked out. Today when I booted it up, it was working fine, then all of a sudden, the Keyboard stopped working. I can not type nothing and am using a USB Keyboard even now. Junk!
Excerpt: One of the first things that happened with this laptop was that the entire right side panel with connections got knocked out of line, and I haven't been able to use the connections on that side. I'm someone that's had laptops for a decade without a problem like that happening. The more annoying thing though was that I bought it with an upgraded battery and the best buy warranty.
Excerpt: This laptop has been the BEST laptop I have owned so far, really sturdy and great for all uses. I have not used it for intense games but the games I do play have good picture and sound and is really fast and amazing for all my daily uses. Would definitely recommend for college students and active home users.

Excerpt: This is a LOT of computer for the money. I love that the RAM is upgradeable even though it runs beautifully fast right out of the box. The screen is great and I like the non-shiny finish of the screen, so there is no glare at all. The keyboard is the perfect size (for my regular-sized girl hands) This is the 2nd Toshiba laptop in my household. We have absolutely loved all of them. This one is definitely incredible, and the best of the bunch.
