Summary: I can't help but notice the thing most people are complaining about are unrelated to Toshiba, or this computer in particular. Most of them are actually complaints about Windows 8, or because they can't operate a computer.
Summary: This laptop has a high quality screen, a rather fast processor and excellent operational software via the new Windows 8 os. It is a fast and effective laptop that has met the essential needs expected.
Summary: Really like the lightweight of this particular 17" laptop. Also seems to have very quick processor and hard drive performance compared to earlier Intel dual core processors. The screen is sharp and bright as well.
Summary: I got this laptop as a Christmas present and I love it. Windows 8 takes some getting used to but that's to be expected. I love the big screen. My mom has a Sony laptop with the same size screen but is much heavier. The webcam is a little ehhhh.....but other than that I'm happy with my gift.
