Excerpt: As far as the performance of the laptop, I love my Toshiba. That being said, I had had it less than a yr and the charger quit on me. I have since purchased several replacement charges, and none worked. I have spoken to several other Toshiba Laptop owners, and they all had the same problem. In order to replace the laptop cord on most Toshiba laptops, you have to buy the replacement cord through Toshiba, which is around $65.
Summary: I enjoy this laptop very much. It's larger than my netbook and it has the DVD/CD drive so I can watch movies and download software, which the netbook doesn't have, and it's smaller than my Toshiba Qosmio, which makes it easy to carry.
Toshiba Satellite C650 - Beware of their Tech Support
22 August 2011
Excerpt: 2/9/12 - **Please see update under "Support & Service". I have downgraded my rating on this item. I was spending as many as 10 hours per day at my desktop computer; and physically it was starting to take a toll. I decided that if I could work in my recliner chair on a laptop with my feet up, I would be much more comfortable.
Excerpt: I just got my new Toshiba. Ths is my second laptop, and I like it much better than my first. I would compare it to my old on which is a dell laptop. I think this one is definitely worth while. APPEARANCE: The one I have is black. The color looks so beautiful because it is shiny (not shimmery). It is very sleek and goes for all age groups and genders. It measures 13"x10" which is normal yet a little bigger compared to macbooks and mini laptops.
Excerpt: Not only is this computer priced reasonably, but it works very well and runs smoothly even with mulitple applications opened at one time. It is easy to transport and would highly recommend this to anyone working in a corporate office for business or just to play with. There may be a big hype about mac computers these days but I would prefer a PC over any other computer because they are much easier to use, and are great for small or large projects.
Summary: Amazing Computer. Suits all your needs, as mentiod, it is not a gaming laptop/computer. Surfing, Word etc, is perfect for this laptop because of it's i3 processor and 4gb Ram. Got it as a gift, and Loving it. Haven't said, it is a great computer for everday tasks and probably even some light gaming. Runs Skyrim on low, but it runs!
Excerpt: "...all. So we rang up Toshiba and because it was still in warranty, they were happy to have a look at it and they took it away for a while and it came back with a new harddrive. I did lose all my files on the laptop including over 10,000 songs. But as I had a lot of them on CD anyway, I was able to recover them. As far as I'm concerned I think Toshiba gave us great support and they also advised us to make a recovery disk to prevent it from happening ...
Pros: Easy to customise and great manufacturer support .
Cons: Not so good for gaming and can't play blu - rays on it .
Toshiba Satellite Pro C650-13D: It Got The Balance Right
18 December 2012
Summary: My Laptop This is a laptop that runs windows 7. It has Skype pre-installed and a free trial of McAfee anti-virus. I've had this laptop for nearly two or three years and it's still in good working condition. The only downside to the laptop is that the screen is a bit wobbly at times. But other than that, the laptop still works very well. I use the laptop for a lot of things in my life and I've found it very useful.
Pros: Easy to customise and great manufacturer support.
Cons: Not so good for gaming and can't play blu-rays on it.
