Excerpt: I am enjoying this computer. I wish I had asked more questions about it's abilities, as I am stumbling in learning about the many things it can do. With each new step, I am seeing what new things this computer can do.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Low Power Consumption, Quality Construction
Excerpt: My previous laptop was XP. I dragged out the decision to upgrade because of fear. I am not very techy. But I had to move forward. This is so fast and I can navigate it pretty well. Even signed up for Skype. I watched some YouTube videos about Windows 8 and I was off and running. I now have Windows 8.1 and that is even easier. Made the right choice.
Excerpt: I bought a new Toshiba laptop (Satellite 55-A5284) sight unseen because the last Toshiba laptop I bought at Staples was great. Wrong move. The built-in "mouse" is a lot harder to work on the new laptop than it was on the old one.
Excerpt: Purchased my Toshiba L55TA5290 Satellite laptop on January 27th at the Staples in Lithonia, GA. The sales associate, Dillon, was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. My old Dell XP was on the way out and I was desperate for a new computer. I was looking for another Dell, but the one I wanted was not available. Dillon showed me the Toshiba and answered my questions satisfactorily. I have been very happy with this computer.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Excerpt: Overall nice light fast computer with really good battery life - a true 4-5hrs - with Outlook and multiple internet sites open. One thing I don't like is that the Touchpad has a mind of its own. The right and left click are real stiff to press down on - and the pad its self is too sensitive - so your mouse and cursor end up all over the place. Scrolling is hard to do. I use the up-down arrow keys. Also no hard drive light indicator to see when it is working/thinking.
Excerpt: We bought this laptop to replace our old one. This one has windows 8, for us is a little confusing most of the time, but I bought the windows 8 for dummies book. I think it is going to be a life saver for us when it comes to figure out what used to be easy with our windows 7. We are very happy with the size and weight of our laptop. My husband is having more problems than I am but I think if he uses the book it be much easier for him also.
