Summary: My Compaq Presario's hard drive crashed for good so I had to do a quick replacement with an inexpensive model. The Toshiba Satellite features an AMD A6 Quad Core processor with a 2.0 GHz speed. I selected this unit because my Presario had an AMD Athlon Dual Core processor with a 2.1 GHz speed and thought the performance would be very similar. Unfortunately, it seems a bit slower... my spreadsheets and Word documents load more slowly.
Summary: I've had this computer for a little over a year so far and I took it to college with me. Simply put, it does its job and you get what you pay for. I have had no big issues with it. As a note, I don't have many programs installed besides Microsoft Office and a few other small programs. The downsides: others have said the keyboard sucks. It really does. It's cheap and the keys feel super stiff.
Summary: I mainly use my laptop for work and surfing the web, so I'm not taxing it too much. As far as internal hardware functionality, it works fine for what I need. My big complaints are the physical design of the laptop. 1) It's poorly weighted. The plastic casing is very lightweight, leaving all the weight is in the monitor If you happen to actually use your laptop in your lap, you have to hold on to it for dear life, so it doesn't tip backwards.
Summary: its okay for what i wanted,you know basic stuff like e-mail and youtube and a few low end games and visual novels.the processor is rather weak and the speakerphones are kind of the low end spectrum of what you might want or expect from a laptop.despite of its weak processor this machine can handle HD in a breeze.the dvd player is not too shabby as well.overall,its not great but not too bad either
Summary: The Laptop is O.K. the good thing about it, if you do not use for about five minutes, it shuts off, that's energy saver power, however, it takes forever to power up, once you turn it on, it takes up to 10-15 minutes to power up. That's what I hate about it.
