Summary: Cheap, fast and decent storage. Windows 8 is terrible to use, I run a Windows 7 shell. But my DVD drive doesn't open any more unless I use a probe after 2 years. Very disappointing, especially since I haven't used the DVD drive very much.
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.
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.
Summary: I liked the computer but I received a bad battery with my purchase. Never heard of that before but it was quickly replaced by Toshiba. I received my new battery within days of ordering the replacement.
