Summary: I am very disappointed in the quality of this lap top. Had it for little over a year or so and the screen lid literally broke off, had all kinds of wires falling out. It was beyond repair. Opened it one day and it made awful crack sound and broke off.
Summary: windows 8 is not a good program, 7 was better. The computer freezes on line a lot. If you watch a DVD without an external hard drive be ready to hear a lot of noise. I definitely wouldn't recommend this computer.
Summary: I have had this laptop for a while now an i am to say, not very impressed. To start off, it comes with a TON of crap-ware. If you try and uninstall it disables all of the functionality for the hot-keys. The HDD is supposed to be 320GB (Usually formatted to about 300) but I was only able to use about 250. Great for a tweenager for there first laptop. But not for somebody that wants to be able to play at best browser games.
Summary: Of the two Toshiba laptops (c55d, cs55d) I tried, BOTH had battery issues. Google "Toshiba laptop + plugged in, not charging" It is apparently a VERY common issue. While there are approximately two physical workarounds, and one software, if you prefer a hassle free experience, take this into consideration. Fortunately for me, My local Best Buy has worked tirelessly to provide me a perfectly satisfactory customer experience.
Summary: In less than FIVE MONTHS, this laptop suffered a complete hardware failure and I lost EVERYTHING!!!!!! Very upset! I lost photos, resumes, cover letters, personal information. I am very disappointed.
