Summary: I bought this laptop for college so my spouse and I don't have to fight over using the desk PC when we have to do our school work. I was under the impression that the laptop would start-up on the fast side and load programs even faster. I was disappointed to see that everything seems to load on the sluggish side. Since this will not be my main computer it should be OK.
Summary: A lower/mid-range laptop that performs decently, without excessive "bloatware" but did have interesting and useful Toshiba software pre-installed. Sharp display; touchpad is a bit quirky in responding to gestures and, being off-center, may be a little uncomfortable for left-handed users. Recommended for beginner -to- intermediate users.
Summary: Bought this for my mom. She didn't need a fast computer or one with a large amount of storage space. Just something to go on FB and web surf. It serves its purpose, but this is too slow for my liking.
Summary: Computer runs fine easy to set up out of the box....but it has a cheap flimsy case not near as sturdy as my last Toshiba which lasted 6 years till the motherboard shorted out. Computer is only 6 months old and screen hinge pops when you open it , will probably break any-day now.
Excerpt: This is a good laptop for under $ 500 . It is very light , even lighter than my lenovo with the same size screen. I was always hoping for a toshiba and then I found this one ( I heard that toshiba is a good and reliable brand for laptops) , mostly because it 's cheap. I does have a webcam , good for video chat . I use it most of the time for school work so I can not comment on other complicated functions like playing games or editing movies.
Summary: It's a good laptop, nothing great but average for surf the web, read documents and download music or files. Not good to play or do multitasking work because it's very slow and the ram doesn't help. The quality of the laptop are good, but the materials looks like cheaper plastic, I think that ASUS provides a better laptops for a low or similar price, but if you like toshiba and don't wanna spend to much money this laptop it's for you.
