Summary: Firstly I did not buy this laptop from amazon, my unit was purchased at best buy in atlanta. I don't think it slow it runs quit well actually. It doesn't over heat or make loud fan noises. Th screen is crystal clear and most of my Windows 7 programs work well or better in windows 8 environment.
Summary: I'd first like to mention that I didn't purchase this laptop on Amazon; I bought it on eBay, brand new, in box for $500. Totally worth it. I'm upgrading from an old Toshiba Satellite from 2009 and honestly this laptop isn't all that bad.
Summary: The computer itself is excellent! I think it should have more memory but that can be fixed.I can't say the same for the pre-loaded windows 8 is a real pain. I tried to load windows 7 butthenew system won't allow it.
This Toshiba laptop is pretty nice and easy to use with a reasonable price ...

Summary: This Toshiba laptop is pretty nice and easy to use with a reasonable price People have written bad reviews for the laptop blaming Windows 8 but this is obviously irrelevant. Pros: -Lightweight for a 14'' laptop with a DVD drive - Decent battery life of 4-5 hours at least - Backlit keyboard - Good...
Summary: I brought this for my daughter in May ........ the hard drive has crashed, so its being returned for replacement. Otherwise, my daughter was really happy with the computer itself, guess we were just unlucky on this occasion??
