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.
Good, sturdy computer for the casual or business user.

Summary: To start, this is not a gaming laptop. Don't buy this if you are a hardcore gamer and need the latest computer games to run perfectly. You will be disappointed. But for the casual user, a student, or someone who uses their computer for business, this Toshiba Satellite is a great investment.
fantastic speed and performance, a few minor drawbacks

Summary: I've been using mine since january 2010, so about 1.5 years. I use arcinfo(arcgis), office 2007, and all of the usual media programs. I am amazed at how well this computer can handle everything I throw at it.
Summary: Pros: Massive CPU and RAM and a decent graphics card that will run pretty much all games on low (left for dead on high without lag) energy saver mode Cons: battery life no blueray or bluetooth This is a great computer over all id give it 5 starts but it has at most a 2 hour battery life(the more...
Summary: I really like this computer even though I am new to Windows 7. I love the sound system - so much better than my Sony Vaio. I like the screen size but its a little heavy due to the battery. Overall I think I will be very satisfied with this model.
Summary: I recently purchased this Toshiba to replace my A505-S6980 which is a great computer but not enough power to edit HD video. You can not go wrong with this laptop. I would have given 5 stars if it had bluetooth or blu-ray. Those are the only thing's this laptop is lacking.
Summary: I got this computer after my 3rd Gateway died. My Dad recommended it to me after he bought one. I researched it and asked a couple of Toshiba owners that I know and took the plunge. I love how fast it is.
Excerpt: I bought mine a few years ago from Best Buy for 700 USD at the time. At the time, it was a great deal. Now, looking back, it was still a great deal. Depending on how much it costs now (600-750 USD), I would still recommend buying it.
Pros: Reliable, fast, great price .
Cons: Fingerprints accumulate on the plastic material
