Summary: Well, it has taken me a long time to review this, but I really don't like to rate a laptop until it has actually lasted more than two years with me. Overall, I like it, the only problem I have is that the fan and venting system is not large enough to do a good job of keeping it cool, so I have to prop it up at an angle so it gets better ventilation or use a cooling fun under it so I don't get the occasional shutdown from it being too hot.
Excerpt: When I got to college, the macs were just becoming popular so naturally I had one. I loved the 2-point touchpad, the visually stunning screen, the user friendly features and I swore I would never go back to PC. However, when I started dental school, we were required to get a laptop with a high level of specs. My old mac wasn’t going to cut it so I was on the market for a new computer.
Excerpt: I bought this product when I was a senior in high school going to college. It was during one of Best Buy's 4th of July sale and it cost a little over $600 so I figured why not. Right away I loved it! The computer was fast, it was super quiet and never overheated. A good feature of this laptop is that they have USB ports on both sides of the laptop. So I can have my external harddrive plugged in on one side and my ipod plugged in the other.
Excerpt: In general, Toshiba laptops are very high quality. I own the Toshiba satelitte laptop and I found it very reliable. The laptop had a good quality screen (the resolution was bright and sharp) and the processor was good. The computer was fast. The computer I have has 4GB, therefore I can multitask pretty easlily. I would suggest deleting or uninstalling some of the promotional or limited time offer softwares. I find them quite useless. The battery power is decent.
The notebook looks great, but broke down 13 months after purchas
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Toshiba Satellite notebook has pros and two cons. It works well but the webcam does not work that well . The speakers are not loud enough. The price is right. The notebook stopped working 13 months after I bought it. Of course, the warranty was up and I took it to the Geek Squad at Best Buy for repair. $199.00 later, they said it was a software problem, which was not covered by the extra warranty from my credit card.
Excerpt: I love this computer. There are a couple of things I would probably improve on, but for the price it is perfect. On the cons, the screen gets dirty a little easy, and I have had to replace one stick of memory since purchasing it in October. On the pros, it has a super wide screen but is also extremely light weight and very easy to tote any where I need to go. It has the 10-key on the side, which is not the easiest thing to find on a laptop. The hardware it comes with...
Excerpt: This is a nice lap top for the price. It was considerably cheaper than most and has been pretty good. We bought this lap top for work at a dairy. It had several extra programs on it and it had most everything we need except for some specific dairy programs. It does not have a seperate number key on the side and I would have really liked to have that. When you type lots of numbers it sure it nice to have that extra.
Excerpt: My work requires me to have a graphic computer with a little bit higher resolution. I stumbled around the internet for quite sometimes because most of the graphic computer with higher resolution usually run at least about $1000 up. I found Toshiba Satellite L675 notebook for $611.xx plus tax which has 1600x 900 resolution and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 with shared graphic, even though it is not the perfect computer for graphic but it does the job quite nicely.
