Summary: We are really enjoying this new laptop...it was a gift for my daughter!! We have a great time playing the games without it running slow or kicking us off completely like our old laptop would!! Still figuring out the New Windows 8.1 & how to navigate everything properly!! Overall, I am very pleased with it and would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a laptop that has great speed/ storage & functionality!!
Summary: I bought this laptop a week ago, Started it up logged in. looked around through it since this is my first windows 8.1 64 bit. Started to do the updates for enhancements and security but when I selected the updates it wouldn't download them, Instead you had to down load max. of 10 updates each time. Took forever to do it that way, but right in the middle of installing them, the system restarted itself out of the blue. No bsod or black screen.
Summary: I have had so many problems with this computer I just don't want to go through the list. Even tried two system re-writes and installing everything again, twice. Blue screens and shuts off sporadically. Think it might be the bios. Toshiba has two options on their website for it but unsure if I know which one to pick. Probably will give them a call and see if they will answer my question as to which one.
Summary: It's been just one month since I purchased this laptop new, and it's already blue-screened twice. (For those who don't know, that's an instant shutdown without warning, indicating a very serious problem.) The computer has seen light use, and I've installed no new software except Spotify. I guess I'm about to find out whether Toshiba's warranty service is any good.
Summary: This is day 3 for me using this laptop and I really like it. The 17" sure makes a difference. And the keyboard buttons seem bigger than other laptops as well. It's a little hard getting used to the 10-key pad on the right-hand side, but I'll adjust fine. It does come loaded with many programs I will not use, so a lot of my time has been spent uninstalling them. However, I was disappointed in how this was shipped to me.
