Summary: Like new! I previously reported that the "sleep-charge" feature & the 'hibernation' mode did not work but they just needed to be set up by me, which I was able to do using the online owners manual. All previous Toshiba laptops I have purchased had those functions already set.
Summary: I really loved this laptop, it was my pride and joy, that is while it worked. Started giving problems six months after its first use. I used it on an average of two hours per day. I had to press the on/off power button several times before anything would show on the screen.
Summary: Bought it from best buy over a year ago and still going strong. Haven't tested it for gaming yet but would love to. Anyone ever use it for gaming? Would love some Input on it. Only giving it 4 stars because of this fact and it doesn't handle blu ray.
Summary: This laptop continuously loses contact with the network, & for no reason Software generates a 'non responding' alert as the system takes a 'break'. We CAN'T run a business with this aggravation so after many years of Toshiba products & the current run of WIN7-8 junk s/w it's time to go exclusively...
Summary: A second battery (or a better quality one) is a must if you wish to use this computer for long periods of time. Just preference but if this computer had a touch pad that operated like the touch screen a smart phone has, it would be perfect. Not a fan of this one.
Pros: Great horsepower for the money. The keyboard keys have a nice finish unlike a lot of the laptops out there. Screen size and resolution are great for anything you may want to do. Larger then many other 17 inch laptops also.
Cons: THE BATTERY IS GARBAGE!!! There, I put it in capital letters just to illustrate just how bad it is. It's almost as if this thing came with a battery designed to die after 10 or so charges. Finally, as others have mentioned, you have another HD slot but alas, it's a fake.
Pros: I used this laptop for work. I was really abusive to its processing power and it took EVERYTHING I threw at it. I even played some video games on it. Like World of warcraft, League of Legends, etc.
Summary: I'd give this 5 stars, but I've only had 3 days. I love this computer. After having had a Dell, an HP, and a Sony Vaio that died after a year, I chose this based on reviews - here, Toshiba and Best Buy - and am so glad I did. So far, it's the best computer I've had.
