Summary: I bought this laptop from Best Buy too. Initially I was going to order it online and pick it up at the store the same day (the website told me I could get it the same day), but after I had completed the order form it told me that the computer would be ready for pickup in a couple weeks.
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!
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.
Summary: Whatever you do DO NOT UPDATE THE BIOS! Toshiba products have a high rate of failure after attempting a BIOS UPDATE. I have to replace my bios chip, possibly the motherboard and have to pay the guy for labor.
Summary: I've had this laptop for about a year. It's the second laptop i've ever owned. That being said, I always treat all my devices, especially my computer, with care. I've never once dropped or thrown this laptop, or carried it around without it being in it's protective case.
Does the job - make sure you have some kind of warranty

Summary: I got this on a lightning deal right before Christmas. It's got plenty of memory and good speed and everything. Definitely does everything I wanted it to. However, the hard drive crashed 6 months after I got it, which was a total pain.
Summary: A month & a half old, my laptop stops working. After spending an hour trying to get someone to help me (the first two CSR's hung up on me), I find out Toshiba sent out an incorrect update via microsoft updater & that's what caused my laptop to shut down & not work & they will be happy to fix it for...
Summary: I bought this laptop in Oct of '11. I've been a fan of the Toshiba brand since my first laptop purchase(2007). I didn't know much about computers but knew the Toshiba brand name so I went based on that.
Summary: Is a fantastic computer, but be aware don't upgrade the bios (I did from ver. 2.20 to 2.90) when I did the program tell me "Verify error", I don't care about it, but after the reset my computer was dead.
