The best computer I have ever owned, a Toshiba Satellite Pro!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Back when I was beginning college, I had the hardest trouble finding a computer. I looked everywhere for the perfect laptop( I was very picky). I found this laptop online and could not have picked a better computer. I can open so many programs at once without worrying about it crashing. Yes, it has only had one virus in the past year I have owned it, but in my opinion that is not bad. It was quite expensive when I bought it too, but the price was really worth it.
Excerpt: I received this laptop as a gift 2 years ago. Since I had been using a desktop all along, I was hesitated to use it. I am not a computer pro and I am not good at reading instruction. I was like,"What am I going to do with this laptop?" So with my limited patience, I started reading the step to step instruction. Amazingly, the instruction was very easy to follow.
Excerpt: This computer is new and is easy to use.The processor is quick. It was purchased for both travel and home use. It includes wireless internet and three separate USB ports which is great for us since we use flash drives for a lot of our computer programs we save. This computer has a larger screen than our last laptop which makes it mush easier to use. We are able to conect and check email even in the hotals on our travels for free.
Excerpt: The design is simple with a combination of silver-gray and black color. It almost appears unattractive. I also feel that it is not as strong as old laptops, although my opinion is based on hunches only. Perhaps I feel like that because the cover seems to be made of some kind of plastic and the laptop itself feels light. However, in general I am satisfied with its performance. This is a perfect choice if you have limited budget.
Excerpt: What I really need is a personal computer to bring around with me all the time. I do think desktop computers are becoming an old fad, and laptop’s perform way better than desktop computers nowadays. When I’m finally living on my own, I plan on buying a Toshiba L300 rather than a desktop computer. It seems more convenient because it doesn’t consume too much electricity and it’s smaller compared to a desktop PC.
Summary: I personally give this little machine a 4.5 star ratting because i have ben using it for 5 yeas now and i havent encountered any problems with it until recently, with the graphics ship overloading the motherboard, and a few plaws when i used Windows as my OS. The case is sturdy and thick it protects the interior nicely. It's a low buget laptop, but the configuration is nice if you're using it for work and not for games.
Summary: Honestly, this was a great laptop. I got it brand new back in 2008 when they first came out. It has very little gaming capabilities, but holy crap can this thing take a beating. When i first got it, i was about 12. Back then, i was reckless. I dropped it, hit it, and even stepped on it sometimes. I accidentally killed the screen , which was replaced for free (thanks to warranties). It has never crashed on me, although it gets BURNING hot to the touch sometimes.
Pros: durable, long overall life
Cons: gets up to 200 degrees to the touch (measured),
Summary: I've had one of these since 2008, and still like it very much. It's running 3GB RAM, a 160GB HDD, and Win 7. In fact I still enjoy using it, moreso than a more recent HP Entertainment laptop I have, with a bigger screen. The screen is superior, (I have a glossy overlay, which I prefer), the keyboard more clearly marked, and the size is better for carting around. Battery life is (still) around 2.5 hours. I'm thinking of installing a SSD.
Pros: Ergonomically good, excellent screen. Fast enough.
