Summary: The speed of this machine is much faster than my previous one, probably thanks in large part to the i5 processor. I can open multiple programs quickly, and run them without any hitches (in general). Unfortunately, there are some programs that seem to suffer from what I call a "mini-freeze", in which the activity suddenly freezes for several seconds and then resumes. One example is FL Studio 9, which did not have this issue in my previous laptop.
Pros: fast in general, opens programs quickly, multiple programs open at once without slowdown
Cons: fickle internet connectivity, glitchy keyboard, freezes periodically in certain programs, weird clicking sound
Summary: A horrible product. Biggest waste of 600 bucks ever. A year and a half later and it's crashed once and the constant overheating makes it difficult to even run facebook games. Flat out ridiculous. Buy anything else than this piece of trash.
Summary: A very stable configuration which , at this price range , handles most applications beautifully , including intense 3D ones like video games or video editing . It's more than a year since i own it , and i had no issues with it , everything works like a charm . Comes pre-installed with a 64 bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium , which is great for every day use , and also it packs intresting and usefull software from Toshiba .
Pros: Great build-in quality , good looking , confortable keyboard and a nice numerical pad , powerfull cpu and decent videocard , does not overheat .
Cons: build in speaker audio quality is a bit disappointing , no bluetooth conectivity , only 2 usb ports and one e-sata port .
Excerpt: I bought my Toshiba laptop second hand, but it still works really well. I chose this because it was offered with 4GB RAM and 500GB Hard Drive and a full size keyboard with separate numberpad for just £310. The screen is clear and easy to read. The keyboard is full size with a separate number pad, so no need to plug in a separate keyboard in order to avoid cramping when typing. The mouse pad is really simple to use.
Pros: Separate number pad . Full size keyboard . HD Screen 4GB RAM 500GB HDD
Summary: This Laptop is brilliant for everyday use. It is powerful to run programs such as Photoshop, MS Visio etc. The amount of HDD space you get is great alongside the RAM! It's a really great Laptop however the sound on it isn't as powerful as expected but usable. Need speakers! All in all: 9/10!
Summary: All round it's a very good laptop. It was the first laptop I had ever bought so I might be a bit biased. They keyboard really lets it down. You spend £700 on something you expect it to work properly. Aparently it was known to have this random typing glitch by Toshiba who did nothing about it. They aren't sure how to fix it..
Pros: Light, good for gaming if you turn settings down
Cons: Keyboard has issues, can get really hot, screen is lame.
Summary: Quiet heavy laptop , very strong and great quality all around the laptop . I play Counter Strike on it and its works quiet good . I like the fan all the heat comes out from left side and not underneath . The keyboard is nice and soft to type on . I have had it for 3 month now and so far i havnt seen any problem with it . i like the shiny design to .
Pros: solid laptop , good graf . quiet good for gaming .
Summary: I am using model number -L650-I5310. Had purchased in Nov-2010, Have been using it on average basis of 3hrs. daily. Overall performance is good. But a major problem i suffered is HardDisk got corrupt due to which had to lose all the data. Battery life usage is average.
Pros: Overall Functioning is good.
Cons: Missing HDMI port, Battery life not so great, HardDisk crashed within 1yr.
