Summary: First off I put in that I wanted a touch screen so I'm not sure why this was put in those search parameters, but I will take credit for that one. Now that I have had is for less than a year the fan makes so much noise that I can hardly here the sound coming out of it. I leave it only on hard surfaces and still it gets so hot that the fan kicks in and then I can't even pick it up sometimes its so hot on the bottom.
Summary: I bought this computer in February 2013 and the hinges broke by August 2013. Toshiba refused to repair the hinges until the legal route was taken. Having to get a lawyer involved on a 6 month old machine to get them to back the 1 year warranty was is joke.
Summary: I bought one in Aug 2013, 3 weeks later returned it to Best Buy where I got it, hard drive dead. After some intense verbal exchanges I got them to swap me a new laptop same model. It is now Dec 2013 and the hard drive is starting to crap out again, getting pending sector count issues and the system is getting erratic just like the last one before it totally died. I am looking for a non-Toshiba replacement drive now while I still can.
