Summary: I have had this model for a little over 2 years now and I could not be happier. I upgraded the RAM to 8gb shortly after purchasing so I can't comment too much on the stock speed. I have used this laptop for gaming (Skyrim with the HD patch and full render settings) with no problems. Under heavy graphics load it does run a little warm, but no where near some of the other laptops I have had and used in the past.
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 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.
Summary: whatever you do keep your virus software updated!! i didnt now my laptop has become victim to death..replacing the parts and software is going to cost more than the laptop is worth. other than that i love it! i miss it!
Summary: Got this as a desktop backup mainly. Some have said sound is too low, you can fix this for the most part by going into HD audio settings and sliding the EQ bars up, all of em, 10 or so. This helps greatly, but keep in mind these are still just laptop speakers with limited sound range. Battery life is medium at best, but at just under 4 hours that's plenty for me for my uses.
Summary: I picked mine up locally at an Office Depot for $380. It has many Pro's and few Con's PRO: I liked the screen resolution and while gaming everything looked great. CON: After having a 17in laptop before, this 15.6in screen seemed small but it's not a big issue. PRO: The ATI 6520 graphics card handled Skyrim on high settings and played Batman Arkham City very well. Both looked excellent and played very clean. PRO: It never seems to get very warm or hot.
Summary: For the price, this laptop has done everything I've asked of it for the past 7 months. I have it hooked up to the Toshiba Dynalock and that has worked great as I dock and undock it from my computer desk to working with it in other rooms. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that it simply is not a top of the line device, but I knew that when I bought it. In fact, my wife's 4-year-old laptop is ailing so I may end up buying another one of these for her.
Summary: I purchased this laptop as a replacement for one that died. Was a little scared to order one online but since it was after Christmas, all the stores were wiped out. Only had the cheap ones and most expensive ones that no one wanted. Ordered the laptop on Friday and it came on Wed. Got the free shipping through Amazon so was happy with the speed. Laptop was neatly shipped and everything worked fine. Had it up and running in minutes and I'm no computer genius.
Summary: As older folks my wife and I appreciate the ease of use and durability of the Toshiba Satellite. We have one about two years old as well as the one we purchased recently. I have had no trouble with it, except for one of the uhl plugs breaking. We really like the low cost and the appearance as well. The fast delivery was a pleasant surprise! I have never been disappointed with ordering from Amazon.
Summary: Its a really good start for a laptop. One thing i dont like is at the edges of your mousepad its like a scrolling bar and i tend to hit that alot when i dont want to. Overall it was a good purchase.
