Summary: This Toshiba laptop is pretty fast, but it is got one of the most troubling battery meter. It can show 29% left and in the next blink of an eye, it shuts itself off because it has run out of power in the battery.
Excerpt: This was not my first choice - what I really wanted was sold out at Staples. The first day started out well, it was fast both in running programs and in burning DVDs. But the keys of the keyboard have a glossy, slippery finish and are very flat (like most laptop keys today) making touch typing...
Pros: Fast, Fast i7 mobile processor, reasonably priced
Cons: Bad monitor glare, Case feels cheap, Finish is too glossy, Keyboard keys slippery
Summary: I bought this laptop 2 weeks back. I have started using it and tested it for most basic features. First for display. Toshiba's are not that great but ok . When you look at laptop from a angle in such a way that screen is above the eye level then we see the ghost image on the laptop.
Summary: I bought one of these at Staples for $650 plus tax, and ever since leaving the store with it have had nothing but bad experience. Here is a Compare & Contrast about the pros and cons of this item. PROS: Stylish,attractive Fusion X2 design Intel "Sandy Bridge" Core i7 processor.
Summary: Sent mine back within two weeks, apparently with a faulty hard drive. Did like the keyboard. Also think the feature set is nice. I'd get another if I though the quality was high enough, but don't. This because the feature package it comes with is what I needed.
Excerpt: I decided to return mine within an hour, and within two hours I bought an HP for less. Fortunantly Staples pricematched it, so I got a better computer for less. Not that all Toshibas are bad, but mine was really noisy, (hard drive, fan and some other weird sound even with the speakers off), grainy...
Summary: Wife got this for the daughter going off to school. We never had a Toshiba laptop before but I heard they were good. Was really surprised at the poor quality of the monitor. I asked her why she got one with such low resolution and she said it was the one thing she didnt check, she just assumed it...
Pros: fast, not too much bloatware
Cons: Worst screen I've ever seen on a laptop. Almost no angular view at all, you either have the monitor set perfectly perpendicular to your eyeball or image quality deteriorates.. fast. My 4 year old ASUS laptop has a much higher quality and resolution monitor
