Summary: I bought the Toshiba C70D for my Mum One or two problems.... Firstly it kept freezing, Secondly the speed of this laptop is beyond a joke (that was before I loaded anything on. The Processor Speed 1 GHz (If you don't know much about processor speeds it is really really slow). Look at other laptops. Speeds of 2.5 GHz are common place. I have a Toshiba I3 satellite, that is great. but with this AMD processor is below standard.
Windows 8 Operating system IS NOT COMPATIBLE with this laptop! DO NOT BUY

Summary: Was desperate to buy new laptop as struggling with previous old acer. When I turned this on it took an age to boot windows 8 and when it finally did the system was incredibly slow and none of the programs would load. After 30 minutes of quite fruitless button bashing and mouse tapping I could not resolve the issue and the "new" laptop is now re-packaged and ready to return...and I am back on the old acer!
Summary: Nice laptop rubbish operating system windows eight is clearly concieved for use on pads and tactile screen machines. Good for people who play and facebook but nigh on useless for anyone who actually wants to work withe the computer. i shall remove this monster and install either Win seven as a compromise or go to Linux. This will be my last PC purchase next time I shall go to Apple.
Summary: Parcel delivered early GREAT!!!!! Love the laptops larger screen, great for watching films. Not touch screen thank goodness. Problem with windows 8.1 is the bottom task bar is not very good but there is a download that enables you to replace it with the traditional bar. Apart from this the laptop is excellent and really enjoying it after dumping my 9 year old one.
Summary: In itself, I like this laptop. Nice wide screen and good build. However, after about 3 months it just stopped working, got the Welcome Screen and then nothing else. Amazon, with its usual excellent customer service soon returned my money and I bought another, exactly the same.
Summary: Lovely to use and look but terrible to stream anything online. I am not sure if this is AMD thing or wifi adapter problem but broadband down load speed is incredibly temperamental. It some time went down as bad as less than 1M download speed on a 30M broadband size. I even tested along with my other laptop which ran perfectly fine on the same condition. It's a lovely big screen but can't watch anything on it so what's the point. In the end I had to return the product.
