Summary: I've been so overall please with this laptop that I wanted to write a review. I bought it in the spring of 2009 and it is now 5 years old. I do NOT regret the purchase! I used it all through grad school and I am still using it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this Toshiba laptop 3 years ago and it worked great for 1.5 years. At the 1.5 year mark, the screen started to flicker and died not long after that. I had to hook it up to an external monitor and used it as a 'desktop' because I figured the repair cost was too much.
Summary: I bought one of these 'devices' from a Best Buy because another laptop required repair and I needed it to use a computer immediately for travel. I will say that Toshiba will not receive business from me again, although it takes two to tango. In this case, the partner is Windows Vista.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in March 2009. It was fast, had good video and sound--for a month, then we had video problems. The faulty hard drive and defective LCD cable harness were replaced in warranty. Today, 11/02/2010, it would not power up. I will have to pay $425 for a motherboard replacement.
