You don't need this pain. Not for computer amateurs.

Bruce Newman, Amazon

  • Summary: Unfortunately, Toshiba has seen fit to load up the startup with a host of backgrouind programs of their own. The result is more than half of the memory is used up at all times. You have to increase memory up to 8 Mb at least if you want reasonable performance.

  • Summary: my web surfing and internet usage on this computer is significantly slower than the last toshiba i had. my connection is the same and has nothing to do with it. my other computer, before it broke down, worked fine in terms of web surfing. this one i just bought now is slow and often lags.

  • Summary: UPDATE: Thing finally arrived. Wouldn't start, so took it to a local tech. Cost an additional $85 to get it to start. Seems to be running OK now. Warning: it doesn't come with any office function, and allows ads on both sides of screen. Not Toshiba's finest day, for sure.

Way underpowered

S. Kewley, Amazon
31 July 2015
  • Summary: Slow, slow, slow. Can't keep up with basic business functions. Takes 10 minutes to reboot, 10 minutes to wake up from slumber. It's just a way underpowered and I don't game or anything like that. A little shocked that a company would sell something this underperforming - looks bad for Toshiba.

  • Summary: This thing feels cheap and flimsy for a toshiba. This will be my third Toshiba laptop and probably now my last. The sound is horrible!!!! I mean really horrible, at 100% volume it can barely be heard and is is tinny and cheap sounding.

Handle with care

D. Schmidt, Amazon
21 July 2015
  • Summary: The laptop was running fine and fast until today. The frame had always felt kind of weak and flexible, but I picked it up by the front corner with one hand and it flexed enough that the screen cracked in several places.

  • Summary: For the price, the Toshiba Satellite is a nice laptop. It’s lightweight and thin, and due to its size, it feels like you are typing on a desktop sized keyboard. This laptop would be perfect for an older person that needs something with a bigger screen, and that is also lightweight.

Aleisia, Amazon

  • Summary: After reading previous reviews about this laptop I decided this would be a good, cheaper laptop to get me through one last year of school. However, this laptop is not all it's cracked up to be. It's very slow, it's constantly freezing and shows on netflix are often blurry.
