Summary: There are numerous forums out there about how this laptops power button sticks in the off position and will randomly shut the computer down. Do not buy. Toshiba will not help you fix the problem.

Summary: I WOULDN'T BUY THIS BRAND LAPTOP FOR A DOG... check Google first..... google TOSHIBA WIRELESS ISSUES...... hadI not already PURCHASED MICROSOFT 2013......because it did NOT COME INSTALLED......I would have returned......no wonder the seller sold at such a "great" price.......
Summary: Stick with other mainline brands. Do not buy a Toshiba laptop.
Pros: When it worked, it was fast.
Cons: DO NOT BUY A TOSHIBA LAPTOP, end of story. I purchased the sister machine to this one (Satellite P755-S5390) 1 year ago (not from Newegg). At first, life was grand. I put in an ssd and life was even more grand. Then the unit started shutting down without warning and for no reason. I called Toshiba tech support. What a joke. They do NOT speak fluent english. I ended up getting nowhere with them. A total waste of my time. They sent me restore cd's ($30) but when trying ...
More problems within the first 3 days of any purchase...EVER

Summary: This computer has not functioned properly since I purchased it. Toshiba's customer service is the world's worst service - they put you on hold for hours, they say they will call back and do not, and they help with absolutely NOTHING unless you get to the supervisor of supervisors which will take a minimum of 48 hours. The keyboard on my computer locked sporadically and often which stopped me from being able to do ANYTHING involving the keyboard.
Summary: I do not recommend buying this computer. The backlit keyboard was a good idea, but the keyboard otherwise sucks in performance as it does not respond to normal keystrokes. Horrible. I've contacted Toshiba customer service as I've only owned it a month and we'll see how they respond. This was my 4th Toshiba laptop so i'm pretty disappointed.
Pros: back lit keyboard
Cons: Keyboard is unresponsive and therefore makes lots of errors
