  • Excerpt: I just purchased my 3rd lab top. I must say this will be my first Toshiba. So far so good. I purchased it for my real estate business, it seams that I am very rough on my lap tops. Very difficult to carry around a desk top verison of a computer (HA HA). The keys are a nice size, not too small. Very user friendly. I would recommend it other agents as well.

  • Excerpt: Well, after my trusty dusty iBook finally bit the dust I decided to get a new one.  After doing some research, it turns out that Toshiba actually has a better track record for longevity that Apple!  I was shocked.  (and sad...still a Mac fan though ;) )  So, trying very hard to adjust to this new information, I went looking for a PC.  And this Satellite L500 is what I ended up with. Keep in mind that I haven't used a PC in about 7 years.  I find it very easy to use.

Toshiba Satellite is AWESOME!

  • Excerpt: I'm no expert on computers.  I'm not completely sure what an Intel Pentium Inside is or the significance of an Energy Star rating.  However, I know that I'm a student that needs a reliable and easy-to-use PC.  The Toshiba Satellite L500 Series is all of that and more. I'm an accounting major so the numeric 10-key pad is excellent for smoother data entry.  I'm almost always on-the-go and the connectivity of the WiFi is great at any wireless hotspot.

A lot of bang for the buck

  • Summary: Worthy of the money spent. Latest processor, memory, and operating system. Tried to build this computer from the Toshiba website, and could not match this price. Most laptops in this price range, offer out dated processors, and the ddr2 memory, or the old windows os. I3 processor, DDR3 memory, and Windows 7! Finding all that in a package as beautiful as this Toshiba for less than $600 is next to impossible (at the time of this writing). The 10 key is also a plus.

Toshiba Satellite L505-GS5035 TruBrite 15.6-Inch Laptop

  • Summary: My son asked me to select a laptop in his price range that would be suitable for college classwork. Toshiba has a better reputation than most for problems out of the box and frequency of repair. He doesn't plan to use it for intensive graphics work or for hi-fidelity sound reproduction, so nothing is lost with the absence of a discrete video card or high-end speakers. This computer is light, easy to carry, and has an excellent battery life due to its Intel i3 processor.

Good looking, reliable, but with so-so display and battery life

  • Summary: I never intended to buy this laptop. It was for a client, but it turned out to be ex=demo and had a scratch, so I bought it myself. And I have never for a moment regretted it. You will be lucky to get 90 minutes out of the battery, and the display can be made to look good, but only from a very restricted viewing angle.

  • Excerpt: "Using this piece of hardware I would say that it is vary user friendly. Very neat and tidy, and perfect for a user with limited computer skills. The speed that the system achieves is very impressive, and brings you a whole new computing experience. One of the main things that I like about this particular product is the colour, shape, and the comfort. However I would say that this product could be made better by adding a web cam to it. Other than it ...
  • Pros: Look, Feel, Comfortablity
  • Cons: No web cam

  • Excerpt: "How to extend the life of your battery Sometimes you just forget to put things on charge. And most of the time it doesn’t cause you too much bother. You just stick the device on charge and don’t give it a moments thought. And then there are the times when you’re out and about. You’re expecting a call from someone to meet you somewhere and you’re down to 1 bar of charge. Nightmare. Do you turn the phone off and wait for a missed call or leave it ...
  • Pros: Laptop is powerful and flexible
  • Cons: Expensive and not as mobile as a netbook
