Summary: I have now had this laptop nearly twelve months and it does everything I want it to. Amazon customer service is first class and I have no complaints. Windows 8.1 is a big improvement on windows 8.
Summary: I bought this in December 2012 as a Christmas present. It worked well for a year but completely failed one year later, a week after it's guarantee ran out. Message "unable to find boot device". I suggest that anyone that is foolish enough like me to buy a Toshiba notebook, pays for a three year extra guarantee.
Summary: Bought this to replace a previous Toshiba Satellite (5 years excellent service).. What a disappointment - the Keyboard is very Flimsy feels like it will 'implode' with every Key Stroke. 'Windows' key failed to work after 3 weeks. Mouse Pad is not smooth as with the previous version and causes the Fingers to 'hesitate' and not give a smooth 'stroke'. Plus - is Windows 8 really the way 'Forward'?
Summary: Nice looking machine just a pity in this day and age you can't select an operating system. Windows 8 is the pits unresponsive one minute running away from you the next. And to make matters worse you can't change the operating system for a different one Toshiba have you like it or lump it
Summary: I gave this laptop a 4 star mark because I've bought Toshiba in the past and did'nt find this quite so easy to get around. However after playing about with the different scrolls to access the screens found it was'nt as bad as first thought. A lot different to windows 7 and I think it could be a little less cumbersome with the controls.
Summary: For those who use a laptop as a work tool Windows 8 is a step backwards as regards ease of use. The "apps" are of no use whatsoever and the version of Outlook is rubbish compared to Outlook Express. So Amazon, for the work user why is there no Windows 7 version?? Have looked at Umbuntu before and stuck with the familiarity of Windows but if I could buy a laptop now without Windows that would be my choice. So Amazon, do us all a favour and make that an option!!!
