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.
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. Its also pretty...
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!
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. It hobbled on for another 1.5 years then died completely. I think my experience with Toshiba's poor reliability is very common, judging from reading many others' similar experience.
Summary: i bought this laptop from my son for $300 and an old hp nc6000! this laptop is fast enough and looks pretty cool, but it is sub par in quality compared to hp and asus products! the keyboard feels flimsy and i think my o key is coming loose already? and the CPU runs at 55-58 degrees Celsius all the time at idle! i haven't tried any games on it cuz i don't dare with it running that hot! real temp says the thermal status is ok?
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. If you are a generic user that doesn't need to use the laptop for major use, it may not be that bad.
