Summary: I owned several notebook (Acer, Asus, Packard Bell and Toshiba) and Toshiba has the worse quality I've ever experienced. After about one year I had to get rid of my Satellite L850-1PD (the standard guaranty expired and to extend it was too expensive). This because they don't care at all about the environment as they say to do[...]: the graphic card burned out and it was welded (!) to the motherboard (to be completely replaced and almost as expensive as a new laptop).
Summary: The whole laptop feels cheap (like it is I suppose) the graphics are dull and flat and the machine is noisy, stiff and so plastic. The mouse pad is too far back so it aches your hands typing, the windows 8 is a nightmare, pages close on their own and the set out is vulgar. I have one word to say if you are thinking of buying this Toshiba laptop ... AVOID!
Summary: Ordered the laptop as a Christmas present for my son. Its a good job i opened it to check it was ok. It had a french keyboard! totally useless, i am in the forces and had to have it delivered to my home address so by the time i had checked it it was too late to order a new replacement as they had none left in stock...!!! Thanks a lot.
