Summary: I have this given laptop and yes i have replaced the hard drive BUT I am not going to bash it has fairly decent battery life for a midsize notebook I can only give it 4 stars due to the sound quality with out an audio enhancer is far less then other computers i have had. This laptop goes 4 days a week to Suny Broome and home and has had my 4 and 2 year olds playing with it and it seems to hold up for a student granted not a perfect laptop after i replaced the hard drive...
Summary: I really liked this laptop until it started having overheating problems. I imagine this is because of it being a refurbished model. There are nice features on this, such as a facial recognition sign on screen and backlit keys which is a nice touch in my opinion. If another of these had been available from the seller, I would have taken it with no doubts.
Summary: I bought a refurbished model of this laptop for my husband and it just arrived a few days ago. So far it seems great. It was very easy to set up, and works fast. Didn't come with any type of word processor installed though, so we'll have to do that on our own.
Summary: i was given this laptop as a gift when i turned 15 i am almost 17(less than a week) now. afew months after i got the laptop it crashed completely so i thought itwas a pos but i then installed ubuntu 13.04 a yr after. i then heard of the ubuntu program downloaded it on to my usb and after a few hours of running between pc's to get the files correct (i suggest to burn the iso NOT the usb way) i finally got the laptop up and running like new, If you buy this pc i highly...
Summary: I bought this computer about a month ago, and I didn't expect it to be much since it's been used, but I got it anyway because it seemed like the best computer in my price range that runs on windows 7. Although there are some things that need to be fixed/dealt with like the battery needs replacement and the left clicker sticks (this was solved by getting a wireless mouse), but overall, this machine runs fantastically. It's fast and can play multimedia perfectly.
Summary: I got this laptop from a friend that came to me from his workplace, I have upgraded to 8GB of RAM and a 240GB Intel SATA III SSD. After that this laptop became magic. I render fractals in Apophysis, songs in Fruity Loops Studio, and videos in Microsoft Movie Maker and can multitask between rendering fractals and a song OR a video and running flash and other processes. I don't have any hiccups in performance and I leave almost everything open.
Summary: got this computer in February also, from Best Buy... it did crash four months after I got it, but I'm really starting to believe its what Best Buy did when they up load software ,( that way Geek squad is always bring in the dough! Lol)on it such as my Microsoft Office suite. I don't think that's a coincidence we all got our laptops from Best Buy around the same time and had the same problem.
Summary: I bought this Laptop in January 2010 from Best-Buy. At the time this laptop was about $800, so at Amazons price this laptops a steal. Yes its a few years old, but it still performs great, and it holds up to the everyday wear and tear. I'm in need of a newer computer, but after owning a Toshiba I couldn't buy any other brand.
Excellent quality, sound, screen, but side usb port not good idea

Summary: Hi! I've had my Toshiba Satellite for a year now. There are many things I love about this laptop, and in fact I think Jesse's review was spot on so I suggest reading it. I too love the brilliant screen, but I bought an anti-glare film because I couldn't see it in the sunshine. The battery lasts 4-5 hours and that's terrific, except it makes this laptop a monster to carry around, which I do a lot.
