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.
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: 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.
Amazing product! This truly was gggreat value for the money!

Summary: I was looking for a new laptop to replace an old Sony... I had my old laptop for years, and loved it, so I was not ready to look for other brand names. However with my son being accepted in the Honors program I new I had to give. We have always tried to maintain ourselves on a budget and that goes for everything so finding a new laptop in our price range was a bit of a challenge. I was pleasantly surprised when my son who is a bit of a computer nerd...lol.
