Excerpt: I have two of these Toshiba Satellite laptops at home, and both of them work really well. I find that the laptop is perfect for commuting to and from work with as it's fairly compact and isn't incredibly fragile like a lot of other laptops. In terms of performance, I've been really pleased.
Summary: I've had this laptop for a year and a half now and it's preforming just as it did when I first purchased it. It is mostly used by my daughter for music, social networking, education and art purposes, it runs beautifully, wonderful at multitasking.
Summary: Bought this over 2 years ago for my daughter who was going abroad. Now home and she is still using it without any problems. Robust, has been all over the world. Possibly a bit out of date now, but really seviceable.
