For the money a great power station for all around basic use
6 December 2014
Summary: My power station at work - replaces an XP desktop. Used for almost a year with heavy multitask. Zero issues with performance. One star off because every time I play music I have to go in the interface for the speaker settings and reset it to get decent sound quality. A minor pain in the neck. Wish list is they put more of the ports in the back so it's not such a mass of wires out the sides. Would require a major redesign of the hinge on the lid.
Summary: This laptop loses a star for poor sound quality. But I am able to get around that by attaching speakers when I watch movies, so it's ok. The picture is great. I am still getting used to the new version of windows that's included, which is more like the interface on a personal tablet. I spent the first hour after I received it, removing all of the pre-installed "apps" which were mostly random games, and programs I would never use.
Summary: I like this laptop a lot. It is easy to use and I love windows 7 (hate windows 8). Easy set up and use. I use it for work ( I work from home as a real estate agent) and it works great. Would recommend to anyone looking for easy work or school laptop.
Summary: The laptop seems to be fairly good so far. I went with Windows 7 instead of 8 so I would not have to buy all new software. Also I did not want a touch screen as it would not work well for the way I use my computer. I use it while sitting on my couch and I would have been having to reach as I have short arms. I think for the price it is probably a very good buy although a similar machine with Windows 8 on it would have been cheaper.
Summary: Okay, I had to get a new laptop for school because we do a lot of video conferencing and online collaboration etc, which for some reason we have to do with 3D avatars. I don't know. Anyway this seemed like an affordable option. I got mine off the Toshiba website. It starts somewhere around 350 and can be customized (that's why I got it from Toshiba and not Amazon, sorry guys.) I went with the Windows 7 instead of 8, Core i3 and Intel HD 4000 graphics.
