Summary: I purchased this laptop strictly for the purposes of going back to school and have regretted it ever since. I'm not going to get into all the details but I will say that the processor leaves a lot to be desired and the keyboard is not my favorite. I will be happy the day this thing finally dies and I can justify the expense of purchasing a new laptop to replace it. Do yourself a favor and purchase a better machine.
Summary: My first laptop was a Toshiba Satellite, and after several other brands, back to it. Relied on a consumer report for best trade-off of capabilities and price. It's noticeably heavier than last few laptops, but I use it in place, so not an issue for me. I like the its "touch"; took almost no adjusting to keyboard, on which the keys are perfectly flat. The case seems on the keyboard side of machine seems pretty thin ...

Summary: The machine is fine. A bit slow but adequate for internet, email and word processing. The case, however is dreadful. It has plastic hinges. and they crack! I'm writing this review on it and I cannot close the machine up. It is stuck open because of the broken hinges that caused the case to flex and crack.
