Summary: There are quite a few reviews here trashing this product, usually because of crashing and slow processing speed. Being a low end computer three years ago when it was released, this isn't all that surprising, but it is not a valid representation of EVERY unit out there.
May be new but you will hsve to update a lot of programs.

Summary: I received a new pc but everything was put on it in 2012 so I'm having to update it before I can even use it. I got it before Christmas but have not been able to use it yet. I don't have that much time to down load the new programs.
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.
Summary: Other than for the windows 8 to get used to, this computer runs great! It can play games pretty well, for me the sims 3 series. I really like it. It also showed up a week early and packaged very nicely.
