Summary: I have owned the excellent Toshiba Satellite Laptop with Windows 7 for several years and had no problems.This new Windows 8 user interface requires that you create a microsft account in order to be able to access your own e mail account.Probably the worst feature however is that Windows 8 no longer supports multiple windows on the screen.When you do your Christmas shopping, you will have to memorize information from one window as you activate another window, instead of...
Summary: Just bought this at staples for 250 bucks!!!!! is is so cheap that you should not complaint. Is is made from recycled electronic components and a very cheap keyboard, but it gets the job done, it may not be the fastest , but for browsing and paying bills on-line it is a no brainer.
Summary: I got this as a cheap travel laptop. It also was my first venture into Windows 8. If I had it to do over again, I would have opted for a laptop with a faster processor (it's a bit of a dog). This is after optimizing for performance to remove all of the sexy screen transition animations. As others have noted, the rough-surface touch pad is not very responsive, and can be frustrating, so I use a mouse. (I've also decided, after months of use, that I hate Windows 8.
I like it however not use to the new windows eight

Summary: I really like this computer except for windows 8 every time you do something it changes screen when you use the mouse pad, also the sound is very low and I mean really low quality. I do not like how you have to buy everything to put on a computer now days, they give you a week trial or a month free trial some apps have a 60-90 day free trial. I am referring to the larger programs such as word and spreadsheet.
Summary: I will never understand the allure of windows 8 on a non touch screen computer It's clunky, ugly, and a pain to get around on. The computer is nice and would have been a 4 star with windows 7.
Summary: This is a basic, good Toshiba laptop. This is my third Toshiba and have had no problems with any of them. But !!! Windows 8 Metro. Go find 10 thesauruses and look up all of the synonyms for"crap" and that is Metro. And, the sound on this laptop is worse than pathetic. It sounds likes noise coming from inside a rusty bucket.
