Summary: There are a lot of reviews here speaking to the nuts and bolts of this laptop's function but there's something you should be prepared for before buying this machine. The hinge bracket has an inherent flaw in any of the Satellite computers.
Summary: I found a used mint condition Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7332 Laptop with 16GB of ram for a $150 at a pawn shop. I overclocked it to 3.2GHZ and now it's way faster then the original 2.7GHZ. It's a great looking laptop with a 17.3" screen. Using it to record music mostly.
Summary: i bought this for light duty gaming and it's just perfect! 100-120 fps on mine craft I had a spare 8 gb of ram and the laptop comes with a 2gb and 4gb stick adding up to 6gb so I took the 2gb stick out and put 8gb ram and now I have 12gb of RAM.
Toshibia Hardware is great, win 8.1 slow, Linux Super fast

Summary: Outstanding machine, but WIN 8.1 stinks. My minor complaints with the hardware are, the fn keys are black tiny decals on black keys (you need a magnified glass to read them) and require holding down the fn key. However I found you can change to not hold down the fn key in the BIOS.
Summary: I love my this laptop! By far the best machine I ever purchased, I STILL HATE WINDOWS 8 CONFUSING AS HECK! It easy to use and was purchased for a elderly man who loved it. Great weight and screen size. Enjoy.
