Summary: I just bought this computer last week to replace a Compaq I have. SO far it has been the best computer that I have purchased. After reading some of these reviews, I can tell that people don't ever RTFM. They say that their music and/or games skip...well here is why: This laptop has a built in HD protector that senses vibrations and automatically moves the HD head to a safe position in an effort to prevent damage that could be caused by head to disk contact.
Summary: Toshiba really hit a homerun with this thing! It out-performs all three of my PC's. I'm very happy with it's ability to do 5 things at once without getting bogged down or clogged up. It is win 7, much better than win 8.
