Summary: Beyond all good features and quality screen, there is something I don't like. The battery is WEAK. I mean really weak. If you keep your laptop turned off for about 2 weeks you may discover that your laptop is not booting - not enough juice! Another paradox is the wireless card in the FTP mode: it is very-very slow. I have no explanation why it occurs but I see that the upload speed is about 70KB/sec, no more.
Summary: I brought this 3 years or more ago. It's an excellent computer no problems. Nice wide screen, comfortable keys while typing. It's fast, I purchase for use at home to complete jobs that I could not finish at work. my job is very demanding , not enough time in the work day to finsh and meet deadlines. I was able connect to work place system and finish jobs. The battery last maybe an hour now, but I just switch to AC outlet.
Summary: I have had this laptop for 2 1/2 years now. And it runs great as of today. But if you do not take care of it, it will slowly fall apart and crumble, software wise, of course. The Specs are middle of the line and theres nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. I have had issues with firefox and macaffe but after I unistalled both of them it runs like new. Overall, Toshiba is one of the companies that's a hit or miss, better than HP, worse off than a dell or an asus.
Summary: 4 GB of ram isn't bad, it can run most everyday programs. It can play games such as Happy Wheels, and is very good at multitasking. It will run hot from time to time due to the accelerator, which runs programs faster than the CPU can keep up with. It's a nice computer for general tasks.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in January of 2012. I thought the value for the price, at the time, was a good deal, and since I had purchased several Toshiba laptops in the past, and always had excellent performance, durability and longevity, I dove in. This laptop received very lite usage as it was my third PC, purchased to check email and general browsing while watching tv - thus not having to go to the tower PC or other laptop in the study.
Summary: I received this computer just over a year ago and I still love it. I was looking for a lightweight and compact computer that would hold all my writing as well as my photos. I was hoping for one that had great volume as well as an HDMI for connecting to the TV for streaming movies. The video quality is terrific as well as the sound. It travels well, as I am a missionary mom and have had to bring it with me on several trips. I truly love the fact that it is lightweight.
