Summary: While this laptop has been able to hold out for some time, it is quite incapable of running anything demanding a moderate amount of processing power, and seeing as it does not have a dedicated graphics card is is unable to actually run any games worth noting. The only thing I have been able to play after about a year of use is Rappelz (an online MMO RPG), and that is only if I am running absolutely nothing else at the same time (non Firefox or Internet Explorer guys!
A great product, but an early functional problem has soured the experience.

Summary: This lap-top has proved to be the best one I have purchased to date, for screen clarity, battery life, general portability and ease of use. However, after a short period of time following its delivery to me in Spain, the lap-top had to be returned to the manufacturer's repair agent in the UK (as it was a UK based purchase) due to a serious fault that rendered the machine completely in-operable. This was at my expense, by courier service.
Excerpt: Have had this laptop for around 6 months now. I find it to be speedy and reliable. It seems to perform better through chrome, although I am not sure that this is due to my internet or simply to the processor inside the laptop. The battery life is adequate, and mine lasts for around 3 hours with no power saving modes employed.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop over a year and a half ago and have had no problems with it. I bought the laptop because my desktop was ancient and did not work properly, i use it mainly for work yet i do treat my self to a game on it once in a while! The 4GB of RAM it has i more than enough for Microsoft word to run smoothly, yet after about a year the laptop started to slow down on start up.
Excerpt: This is a great laptop with good performance and great value and quality build for the money you pay. Really quick start up ,very quite can barely hear it when it is running. Positive:- solid build, good design, clear screen, very quiet operation, good to have a numeric keypad. The processor which is Intel Core i3-380M Processor and 4GB RAM make him very fast. Good wireless internet card. No issues with the computer hanging. Great webcam quality.
If you are looking for a good deal on a laptop, I would highly recommend this one.

Excerpt: I bought this laptop a few weeks ago and I have not had any problems so far. I think that it is a very affordable and efficient product. It is also pretty fast. The Toshiba Satellite also comes with a webcam attached. Mine came with Windows 8 installed on it, so it was also very up to date. I think that it was definitely worth the money. It is one of the most affordable laptops you will find.
Excerpt: This Laptop is the definition of Value for money, i managed to purchase it for the bargain price of £329, and when you consider it has a powerful 2.53ghz processor, 15.6" Screen, add to that it has 4GB of ram, and you have a super smooth computer, which can handle simultaneousness tasks, effortlessly, i won't bore you with the technical details as they can be seen above, they are all very impressive.
Excerpt: ive had this laptop almost 1 year, i purchased it second hand but it was like brand new. ive no complaints or anything bad to say about it. the weight of the laptop is good its not too heavy and is easy to carry around. the screen is 15.6" and is good for watching movies and online tv programmes etc. i found it easy to use and was able to get the hang of it straight away. its fast whilst surfing the net and good download speed.
