Summary: This beast is really quick. Libre-Office used to take overnight to compile on my old machine - now it's done in around an hour. Massive amounts of RAM (16GB), two 1TB hard discs with an SSD cache, and a Core i7 Gen 4 processor contributes to this. The screen is crisp and clear and a decent resolution - whatever is next up from 1400x900 (the unit isn't to hand). The blue Ray player, WiFi and LAN (1GBE) work nicely. For maintenance, it's really well designed for a laptop.
Summary: The blurb on the DSE website about this product says "Enjoy your DVD/Blu-ray™ player ". Well I just bought this machine and sat down to watch a Blu-Ray movie only to discover that my laptop DOES NOT HAVE A BLU-RAY drive!! It was not until I re-checked the specs on this website that I discovered in the fine print that under Optical Drive it says "DVD-SuperMulti Drive", despite what it says in blurb.
Summary: Does what it is supposed to (very fast, compared to my old computer) window’s 8.1 better than windows 8. down side speakers not all they are cracked up to be. The power lights on the front are very bright and rather distracting.
Summary: My last computer - a Lenovo G570 - died suddenly, and I wasn't going to spend to revive it. After shopping around and reading reviews online I realised that I needed something fairly powerful, with a large screen with good video, music and graphics capabilities. Online reviews on the Toshiba Satellite P70-A-11R hardly exist at the time of posting this. Similar computers are described but not many match the identical specification of this machine.
Summary: I have used this and it is decent for gaming but if you're into browsing the internet then this is what you're looking for. For gaming it can run the latest games on low-medium and high if you're lucky. The graphics card is not the best but it will run some games. If you want a computer for gaming then just get a desktop honestly.
Summary: Let's start from bad news about this laptop. bad news: i exchange this laptop 2 times and still i have this annoying/scartchy sound i guess it comes from the hard drive. always turning off the sound when playing youtube or whatever. the battery is poor after 2 days using the laptop which is sucks. the 1600x900 res. is not bad, but when making a 3d model!. dont get this resolution better get a 1080p res.
Summary: the computer is pretty good but i don't like the windows 8. i had windows xp on my old computer and found xp is more easier to use and less confusing. wish i could get rid of 8 and put xp on my new computer.
Summary: I bought this today, in the first four hours I've had it, it has crashed 6-7 times. Windows 8 is unimaginably goofy to use. I have been using windows home computers since 1993, I've never enjoyed apple products but this is going back tomorrow.
