Summary: The computer works great as long asI don't use the space bar while typing anything. The space bar sometimes takes a couple of tapsto work versus inserting one space per press. This really gets annoying when I type at my full speed when typing up my papers for the master's degree.
Summary: The same thing happens to me! EXCEPT my computer begins to act like it is possessed by demons. THe screen has ghost touch spots (bubbles) in several places- zooms in and out rapidly- and shakes like it has Parkinsons . (I have had this laptop for 36 days and it started this on day 3.) I have reset (factory defaults) with customer service, watched it in utility set up mode. Customer Service is horrible.
Summary: I'd like to share my experiences buying a touch screen Toshiba laptop. The screen is EXTREMELY fragile, and Toshiba will NOT cover it in their warranty for any reason. Two months after I bought it, it developed a crack in the screen. It had never fallen or had anything bad happen to it. I always put the pink foam pad in between the keyboard and screen when I closed the laptop. My laptop was used by me only and underwent NO trauma.
Summary: It's a really great computer for the price range. It is the first computer I have ever used Windows 8 on, and that was a bit of a challenge. It is compact, and very portable in form. It can run wordprocessing like Microsoft Office. It has no disk drive, but you can just look up "external disk drive" on Amazon, and buy a cheap one for 15 bucks that plugs into the USB ports. Most computers are being made to do this now.
Summary: I was not terribly impressed by this laptop, but at least I can use it. It’s just so disappointing in terms of specs and weight. Not only is it difficult to bring with you for things like class or conferences, it even freezes during very inconvenient times.
Summary: while the Toshiba is light and easy the keyboard is extremely frustrating. One cannot type quickly with the light touch. Spacebar frequently sticks causing words to run together. Very frustrating keyboard indeed. & I also do not like Windows 8. Help I need my old computer back love windows 7!!
Summary: Windows 8.1 is so different than any system that Microsoft but I love the 11.6 inch screen and the light weight of the laptop!! I did not realize how large my regular laptop was until recently traveling to a seminar and everyone had a Notebook or a small laptop like this one in size, This is well with the money Its great!!!
Summary: I received this laptop as a present for Christmas. After a month of having it the touchscreen glitched. Soon after that the computer froze on a black screen when the power symbol is on. Then soon after that the mouse pad stopped working so I thought maybe resetting the computer would help. Nope. I am now back to the same issues after only 6 months of having it. Don't waste your money.
