Summary: I purchased this laptop Feb. 4, 2010 after my HP died. I was looking for something with a large screen because I am a photographer who uses PS and LR and needed the extra space because of the palettes. I bought it the day it came out at Best Buy for under $400. I have had no issues with it.
Absolutely amazing POWERHOUSE notbook (refurbished model) - cheap and Feature-Packed!!

Summary: This is just an absolute powerhouse, monster of a notebook which is definitely the definition of DESKTOP-replacement!! I have bought a few of these allready for both - me and my relatives and everyone's been nothing but absolutely amazed at these great notebooks.
Summary: This is one bad boy! The screen is bright and crisp (Samsung) The keyboard has no flex and the keys are tight and the whole keyboard is backlit. The speakers are the best sounding on any laptop, period, as long as you uninstall the Conexant Audio driver and use the windows default one.
Pros: Battery life, screen, keyboard, speakers
Cons: Touchpad, media buttons on the left side of the keyboard.
Summary: My desktop crashed and my wife and I wanted to replace it with a laptop since we travel and use Skype with photo editing and video editing. My wife also watches Hulu and wanted a fairly decent screen. We were not disappointed. Toshiba won us over and we will continue to buy their products.
Summary: I wanted a large screen laptop that I could use around the house. This computer satisfied my requirement. The screen is very large and sharp. My best photos come up large and crisp. Beautiful colors. The speakers are wonderful and were an unexpected surprise.
Pros: Very fast machine. I like the finish much beter than my other Fusion finish. The keyboard lights up to the touch and is beautiful. Can't put the thing down! My Desktop is getting jealous of this Laptop. WEI=5.5 right out of the box.
Cons: I like to run at full power and in this mode, the underside of the laptop gets quite warm. VERY small SSD drive which boots quickly, but need to purge back old files often along with old restore points. Would advise to do custom installs of all programs and install on the spindle hard drive.
Summary: When it arrives, dump the bloatware AFTER the windows update is done, and it does take awhile. Fingerprint magnet, eh, just clean it once in a while. Still looking to turn down the screen's brightness, blinding in low light conditions. It's a desktopy kind of laptop with it being a whopping 9.7 lbs.
Pros: It is a huge laptop. The specs speak for themselves. Sounds good, looks good, great graphics capabilities. Mouse pad texture is nice, responsive. Battery life is surprisingly good for the size of this laptop.
Cons: The two hard drives are good except everything is loaded on the small one, bloatware and OS leaves little room for games and such on the solid state drive. Having a hard time finding a case for this monster. Camera is miserable in low light.
