Summary: Purchased a refurbished one last year. and after a couple months, it is slow to a halt even when you just do some simple web surfing. It basically became totally unusable. Anyway, lesson learned. wont buy another refurbished laptop for the rest of my life.
Excerpt: When I decided to buy a laptop the Toshiba came highly recommended from a friend who had enjoyed his for several years. After doing some research on my own I felt this was the laptop for me. I sell things on an online auction site and the Toshiba M305-S4848 has all the speed and power I need to do the job. The operating system and software run smoothly. I haven't had any major problems with this little laptop. Everything works just as it should.
Excerpt: I love this laptop for multiple reasons, all the hardware that it is integrated in it and the reasonable prices. First of all for the security software that come with it it was great and still because I can always can have the children around me be safe while they surf the web, and also because it make everything easier, with the webcam its wire free, no more tangles and ready to use, also I can talk about the RAM and the hard drive, enough to do a lot of things, the...
This is the only brand that I have had no trouble with.

Excerpt: This is the second Toshiba laptop that I have purchased. I love the computer. It is easy to use, and I would buy another one if I needed to. Its easy to clean, its a beautiful shiny black sleek keyboard with screen. I like that it came packaged with the on board web cam and skype already installed into the software programs. I would recommend this brand to anyone friend/neighbor/associate. This is my second computer that is laptop by Toshiba.
Great, portable, versatile. Best pick for average user!

Excerpt: This Toshiba Satelitte laptop is a great one! It is really versatile and all around one of the best laptops I have come across. It really is the best laptop out there for the average computer user. It has 4 GB of RAM, which is plenty to hold lot of music, videos, documents, etc. The best thing I like about it is the speed. I can have a few pdfs open, music playing, a youtube video going and typing a word document at the same time and it doesnt lag.
Decent laptop, but if you have any issues, you're on your own - would not recommend.

Summary: Bought two of these at the same time. Didn't move them around much; his was mostly used to read the newspaper in the morning, check email, and watch an occasional movie, and mine was used to check email and fiddle around with Photoshop here and there. We also both use Skype once in awhile; the camera quality wasn't good, but it did the job.
Summary: Pros(1) lasted me 4 years. (2) never slowed down on me (3) easy to restore all info. Buttons and extra lights are convient. (4) fits right in my puma purse (5) plays games smoothly and quietly.....Sims.. (6) 3 usb ports & sd slot Cons (1) gets very hot (2) delicate laptop don't drop it. Good buy for student or kids or even grannxy.
Summary: I've had this laptop for over 3 years and its working great. I do not take care of it, and move it from different bedrooms, to and from work, etc, and I haven't had one problem with it. I'm very happy with the purchase.
Summary: I bought this Toshiba laptop 3 years ago. Since then, my screen started flickering then it just went completely white, now its doing a long flash that prevents me from doing my work properly or watch a movie in peace. My keyboard is not working anymore and it's just pushing off an odd heat now. Looking at other people's comments, we all have the same issues. This is an unreliable machine and I would NEVER buy another Toshiba device again. Horrible!
