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.
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.
Summary: The laptop itself is great! Super fast, tons of memory, and great features. Toshiba makes great laptops. Had HP before this and it was garbage. Unfortunately the preloaded programs are not so great. Can't get used to Windows 8. Been working with it a few weeks and it's just way too confusing.
