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: this is my second purchase of Toshiba laptops and simply the best--I cannot fault the item in any way--it is used every day-allday we are very pleased with ease to purchase the items on amazon
Summary: Windows 8 takes some getting used to, but I hear they are going to re-introduce the START button. The laptop is fabulous, though. Fast, good screen. Only down side is poor sounds, but a pair of speakers sorts that out. For £300 it is superb.
Summary: memory, processing, graphics and sound are great. i use it to watch media, listen to music and play games. the only downside is the headphone connection was damaged by my dog, wasnt covered in the warranty and repair would cost €300.
Summary: I have been running an older version and it was faster than an i5 for general use, so stays roughly 40C - obviously the i5 will out perform for gaming etc. I deleted everything on the hard drive on arrival, I hate W8 and installed W7. To do this go to BIOS and select dvd drive, and then select CSM boot, and it will boot the W7 or Ubuntu OS.
Summary: I selected this laptop because of its large screen size and my need to display maps and other graphical documents, I also required windows 7 rather than the latest jazzed up incarnation, both to 'home group' with my desktop and undertake serious research on a tried and tested operating system.
