Summary: I bought this laptop to replace a desktop. Best move I ever made. Wasn't sure about Win 8 . . . I love it, people who don't like 8 are just too lazy to learn. It is by far the best op system. If you do the reading of reviews and learn how to use the system, it end up being the best of two worlds . . . The only thing I changed was using a wireless mouse, since I found that this offers more and better control.
So far so good, is worth every penny I paid for it.

Summary: A nice laptop without paying too much, is pretty fast, with lots of space, a big HD display to enjoy any video, is not that thin but is ok also is not to heavy to carry around and does multitasking really great, no slows or delay when opening a file , explorer tabs or new windows, highly recommended!
Summary: Way overpriced, but if you want win7os you make the sacrifice. Battery life is another story must buy new battery look for a longer life battery, and be ready to remove alota junk that Toshiba slapped on this thing. Save yourself the trouble and don't try to pay for the microshaft office, they gladly try to download a newer version that guess what only work for win8os but they will give your money back.
Summary: Positive: 1.- The price. 2.- Performance is relatively OK on Windows 7. Enough for the purpose the laptop was intended for (home use). Negative: 1.- The AC/DC charger stop working after a small fall to the floor. 2.- The display is big, but the quality is bad. The colors are opaque and the video looks like being played on an old VGA monitor. The moral is you want a good product, pay the price. I can't recommend this producti.
Summary: Where to begin, I have never written a review that I can remember-although all experiences with Amazon before this issue were perfect.........(3-5 purchases over 12 mos) . This laptop purchase has been a nightmare!!!!!!!!!! First my budget was under $400-(credit limit) needed 17.3 screen,HDMI output,webcam,decent battery life-Windows 7 only-found what appered to be a great deal on refurbished Toshiba $375 -including shipping. SOLD..........I was excited.
Summary: So far the laptop performs as expected. I don't like the Norton it comes with as this is a memory hogg. Other than that the Windows 8 takes some getting used to. As I said though the laptop is performing as expected.
Summary: This is a pretty good laptop with a fairly big hard drive and plenty of RAM. The only thing i have to complain about so far is the keyboard. The keys are a little to far apart for me and the just feel weird. Other than that this laptop is a great buy for the the money. Also it has Windows 7, which was a selling point for me (I don't like Windows 8). The screen is plenty big and has a max resolution of 1600 x 900.
Summary: I have had no problems with this laptop at all and have found it a delight to use. I have yet to find anything I consider to be a negative. Runs fast with no errors or problems and everything works as expected.
