Summary: I purchased this laptop to replace an HP product. It is adequate overall, but much slower than my previous (3 year old) machine at roughly the same price point. Battery life is nothing to brag about, especially since you have to run it in "high performance" mode to do most things when unplugged. If you're ok with waiting for applications to load, you might be ok with it.
Summary: I was on vacation soon after I bought this product. When I came back, the returning time was expired. The problem is that when the battery is low, the laptop shut down immediately,and I can not restart it even I plug in the charger.The battery light is always red and blinking. I have to wait for a long time for restarting, and the battery last much shorter than the description. I contacted Toshiba, the changed battery for me.
Summary: I waited and waited for just the right laptop. Thought this would be it, but I am not impressed. The i5 processor? I thought it would be SUPER snappy and impressive. You know when you finally get a new computer and cannot BELIEVE how fast it moves? Not so with this one. Maybe there's too much bloatware and I don't really know what to delete so I haven't. The battery life is horrible for a new laptop also. 1-2 hours and the thing just shuts down w/ no warning whatsoever.
