Summary: I purchased this model in September 2011 from a big box store. Pros: It is pretty The sound is excellent The i5 processor is okay Battery life okay - about 3-4 hours Nice size Cons: Extremely sensitive touchpad that needs to be disabled in order to input text more than 2 words From the beginning, I've had issues with the keyboard, especially Left shift key to get upper case text; this has deteriorated and finally in early May, the keyboard just plain died.
Summary: Bought this laptop about 4 weeks ag and am THRILLED with it! The speakers are fabulous, the keys are very easy to work with. Love the compact design. It has lightning speed with connections. Would highly recommend!!
Summary: COMPUTER IS USED AND WORKS TO SPEC INDICATIONS, THE SOFTWARE IS SMOOTH AND CONTROLED. THE PROCESSOR IS MODERATELY FAST, AND IT MULTITASKS APPROPRIATELY AS DESIRED. I HAVE INSTALLED A BUNCH OF EDITING SOFTWARE FOR MUSIC AND VIDEO ON THIS LITTLE LAPTOP AND IT SEEMS TO SHARE THE SPACE WITH ALL THE OTHER SOFTWARE INSTALLATIONS FOR OFFICE VERY WELL. GOOD LITE WEIGHT COMPACT 14" LAPTOP.. ITS THE SECOND ONE LIKE THIS FOR TOSHIBA I HAVE OWNED AND BOTH ARE A GOOD DEAL.
Summary: I have had three or four Toshiba laptops, all of which I have been extremely happy with, with the exception of this model, for just one reason - the hinge on the lid broke and I can't close the top any longer. I did some research to find out what it would cost to fix and its around $300+. My research also revealed that this is a very common problem with this model. Toshiba should fix these for free because it is a manufacturing defect, but it won't do that.
Fast Shipping, Excellent Value for the Price. Thanks!

Summary: My daughter's older MacBook screen died and she needed a low cost replacement for her overseas work - under $300. This vendor sent us a virtually new Toshiba with 6GB of memory, an i5 processor, 14" inch display, 640 Gbyte HD. Sweet! So far everything works as if it's brand new. Thanks!
Summary: I ordered the computer on Wednesday and received it the following Monday. The computer was exactly what the vender said it would be. He said it was missing one rubber foot and it was and that was all that was wrong with it. He was very honest. I would buy from this vendor again. The computer it's self is very nice. It's fast and has a great feel and a good sound. I have always been pleased with all of the Toshiba products I have owned. Too bad they don't make cars.
Summary: I have had this for a few years. This was by far one of the *best* laptops I have ever owned. Battery just needs to be replaced. Dies after an hour but that it s typical fix for a computer with several year usage. Battery packs also come pretty cheap on Amazon so if you have that problem, it is a cheap fix. I mainly used it for school. Being a college student, I need a good working computer.
