Summary: I ordered this laptop specifically due to its use of the Windows 7 operating system, as opposed to the dire Windows 8. It seems Microsoft alternate between good OS and bad OS. When I opened the packaging of the laptop I set it up then checked the DVDs that accompanied it - Windows 8 recovery discs - i double-checked, yes the laptop had the ordered Win-7 professional installed, but the wrong recovery discs.
Summary: For my first laptop, it was a special buy and does every thing I need it to do. Instructions were limited which is why it gets four stars and not five. Had to spend a lot of time working out where things were and how to operate various windows. Overall, no regrets.
Summary: This laptop is just adorable and fantastic with all the mind blowing features at this amazing price. It is a competitor to the Apple Macbook in the market and is fantastic in looks, shape, size and features. Toshiba Service Centre is also moderately good. Over all at this price this lappy makes wonders!!!
Summary: never ever seen laptop like this really BEST!!! if u r looking 4 i7 then this is the best 1 Out of which you can achieve great amount of multitasking and high performance but if you intend to play games like (bf3, farcry 2 and max payne 3 / or any upcoming 2012-2013 game) don't expect a flawless performance and FPS.
Summary: My requirement for a laptop was pretty simple : 1) Blazing fast speed 2) To play any game on ultra resolution. And this laptop has satisfied me to the core till now i have tried Dirt 3 , Most wanted 2 both at maximum setting for graphics and this laptop played those games with buttery smoothness giving away amazing frame rates. I was considering buying a macbook but saved more than 60,000 by buying this.
Summary: As many others have said it is a beast in performance. Very slim considering other models. Only 4mm more than MacBook pro in thickness!! It's the best in the price range except on comparing with the Asus k55m. There are some reports of heating issues with the asus.. So I'd advise u to get this one. Pros: Solid package of i7 3rd gen 8gb ram and 2gb ati graphics. Relatively slim built. Great cooling. Cons: Battery life is not great. Does not last a full HD movie.
Summary: I bought it from flipkart and have been using it for 10 to 15 days. It really rocks. Its a best buy at this price. If you compare with the other 3rd gen I7 processor lappys you cant find these many features like 2.0 MP webcam,battery life ,graphics card ,light weight etc. If you need a fighter machine .. you can blindly go for it.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the Laptop. There was a surprise for me. I expected the video card to be Radeon 7610M, but i got a 7670M instead. Very happy. The Windows (W7 HP) rating is 5.9 (lowest for the hard disk, since it is 5400rpm). Processor 7.6, RAM 7.8, Graphics and gaming graphics 6.8. What else do you need. I trust toshiba and toshiba only. I have used model Satellite A300 extensively for four and half years, during my Masters till now.
Summary: I totally agree with the views of Binoy. This is a good laptop with configuration that will last for long in today's rapidly enhancing technology environment. Good graphics, sturdy processor, fine sound, etc. makes it worth the price. I purchased this laptop from elsewhere due to pricing difference. Sorry Flipkart, you do not offer bargains ;-)!
