Summary: I wanted a Windows 7 laptop, and ended up ordering this one. The disc drive in the laptop was apparently defective. It made a raspy buzzing sound while spinning, and would repeatedly stall while I was trying to prepare a recovery disc. The plastic housing on the underside seemed thin and flimsy, I could feel it flex just from handling the computer. I might have kept it were it not for the defect, but as it was I sent it back for a refund. Amazon was very good about it.
Summary: I bought this laptop for my wife on Oct. 6th 2013 to replace her ancient Compaq that just died. This laptop itself is awesome, super performance at a great price, perfect for home office work. What's upsetting is the battery failure. I'm a geek and I know how to handle laptops, I let the laptop fully charge 100% overnight after initial setup... it was plugged in and fully charged overnight before the first time we attempted to use it on battery.
Summary: This is a terrific computer - our family actually has four of them - one for each member. I am not a computer expert just an on-going daily functional user. I especially like the speed. Toshiba has done a good job at removing the "junk" when you initially set it up. I only had to uninstall one programs, Norton, as we use webroot anti-virus software. Update: As I mentioned earlier we have 4 of these computers but now the hinges are breaking or coming loose on one.
Summary: I 100% do not recommend this laptop, it costs over £400 and the first day it came I've have had lots of problems. It came with a virus that would not let me connect to the internet which I had to get sorted out, which cost me over 40 pound. Another problem it came with was the pc watchdog violation error, basically at times it stopped my whole computer from working and having too restart it every time this happened at least 2 times each day.
Summary: After setting up the laptop with Windows 8 the system was very slow. The Toshiba was a replacement for my 6 years old laptop but was actually running slower. After having read the reviews on here I decided to return it and replace it with a more expensive Asus. which was not a problem at the store.
Summary: I was so disappointed! Unfortunately I had to return this laptop as soon as I opened the box. Let me just say that Amazon have been excellent with the delivery and return of the laptop. However my complete disappointment lies with the laptop itself. As we all know, there is plastic and plastic. This laptop has the feel and appearance of a cheap toy. It is so flimsy I was afraid to touch it. This laptop is not a patch on the old Satellite models.
Summary: I thought with a 4GB memory I will get a much faster laptop... It just proved me wrong as with Windows 8 and a 4GB memory the result was drastically un-acceptable and has caused me a real distress when using it especially watching the free videos from the internet and indeed dealing with Windows 8 that I am not yet very familiar with!!!!
