Summary: I ordered this knowing it was refurbished, but it never booted. Damaged hard drive or something. The seller refunded me without hassle as quickly as possible, and I ended up going with a netbook instead. Here is the simple rule kids: when it comes to electronics, avoid 'refurbished'...
Summary: I would not recommend buying this computer. While it is fine for general internet browsing, the computer tends to freeze up which can be annoying. Additionally, the screws fell out of the bottom leaving the screen to flop and need to be propped up at times. I have had to use a 6 year old Sony laptop because of the challenges posed by attempting to do anything more than general internet browsing on the Toshiba.
Summary: I bought a one-year warranty with this laptop. After 6 months the hard drive died. When I called Toshiba, I was told that my warranty was expired. I contacted the seller, who said they would contact Toshiba. A few days later I asked for an update, and the seller said they would contact Amazon (not sure why). Still no response a week later, so I asked for an update within 24 hours.
Summary: On March 18,2013 I brought a computer from T-supply. It stopped working three weeks later I took it to a business that works on computers in my area. They talked to Ben at T-Supply he told us to send computer back. So we did. Then they only wanted to give me $279.00 When I paid $475.00 They are hard to work with and very unfair.
Summary: I previously had a positive attitude about Toshiba, this purchase changed all that. The plastic is extremely cheap and have broken around the components. The computer itself is functional but the plastic casing has slowly broken piece by piece. Looking for another laptop but not a Toshiba!
Summary: I bought this computer Nov 5, 2012, and now, 3 months later, it is dead. It has crashed multilple times, and now it won't turn on at all. I do believe that the life of a computer should be longer than THREE MONTHS!!! If I could rate it lower than one star, I would. This is the second Toshiba computer that has been a piece of crap and I will NEVER buy Toshiba again.
Summary: I purchased this computer for around $400 thinking that it was great value for the money. I have been generally satisfied with the software element of this laptop. But I must ask what sort of engineers designed such a shoddy excuse for a consumer product. I have taken great care of the laptop and most of its life has been spent on a desk where I open and close the cover.
