Summary: I have owned 4 Toshiba laptops and this one went to my wife. It is light for it's size and has an impressive 17" screen. All new computers have windows 8 which I hate but if you don't buy an Apple you have no choice. It was shipped quickly and packaged well.
Summary: i like it for its big screen. it's also fast, which is good enough reason for this product to earn 3 stars from me. i don't like the keyboard, it's hard to type. the buttons at the touchpad is small, sometimes it's confusing if you're on the button or already at the edge of the laptop. the downside of the big screen is that the laptop is heavy, it's clunky. battery life i think is just 1 to 2 hours.
Summary: the computer cord get very hot to the touch and the sticker on the charger bubbled up so i got worried about it and have not used it since i got it i would like to have a refund of some sort but not the whole amount of the computer i really like the computer i bought it for my family use like i said i would like some kind of refund ok thankyou sincerely james williams and again thanks
I have had this laptop 7 months and it was a good perfomer except...

Summary: Great laptop because it has Win 7 on it. But after I read that the NSA was installing spying malware on every laptop sold online. I reformatted mine and all seemed fine except a by the 7th month my hard drive died. Since this was a refurbished unit I was not able to get a replacement HD. Now 2 weeks later the screen is flickering badly and I cant seem able to stop the flickering on and off. Time to take it back for a repair.
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.
