Summary: Reading through all the preceding excellent reviews, I find nothing that I seriously disagree with among any of the positive or negative comments. However, all must be taken in context. Your impression of this laptop will depend entirely on your expectations and your application.
Summary: I've been working on a 12" Dell XPS, which actually feels about the right size, especially for a touch screen, so I was initially overwhelmed by the size of this laptop. This beast has a 17" screen!! That's small TV size.
Summary: I wanted to really like this laptop, but it is really not that great. It does fall into a low end pricing category but it is just not up to todays standards even for an entry level computer. The trackpad has a terrible texture that rubs on your fingers.
Summary: Don't own this particular Toshiba PC but, have bought and owned a few for family and self. I've always praised and loved them. They were great in my opinion except for the fan (s) or cooling system and the hard drive (not known for great hard drives). They also looked great (then ).
