Summary: Never had any issues with Toshiba and it seems never will. Perfect machine. And it starts as soon as i open the lid. Awsome!! However the windows 8 OS is a big mistake. Certainly it cannot be user friendly when it takes almost 10 minuts to find the shut down button.
Summary: Perfect for the price I paid, but to say it's perfect in general would unfortunately be a lie. I'll start with the positives. The laptop is still running with virtually no damage aside from HDD issue that I'll get to later. I bought it last year in August for school, so it's impressive to see no real issue from then to now.
Summary: Runs great, no problems. Easy setup and went right to work. The only complaint is no touch-screen and if we had looked closer when we bought it, we would have realized it. Just wish that with a Windows 8 computer, a fairly critical feature like touch-screen was more prominently identified as either present or NOT present in the sales materials online.
