Summary: I bought this laptop at best buy for around $700. I've had it for about a year now and I love it. I use it to game on and its pretty decent, I'm eventually going to upgrade to a gaming desktop but for now this does alright. I can play Diablo 3 high settings with decent FPS. It plays arma 3 on low settings every now and then the game will crash the drivers.
Summary: Got a refurbished Toshiba satellite of a slightly different model. Computer went to sleep automatically despite settings telling it not to go to sleep. After 3 months of sending it in for repairs (4X total), and sloppy repair jobs that ruined the keyboard Toshiba finally agreed to replace the laptop with a satellite P875-S7102. This computer worked fine for about a week, then the same problem appeared (going to sleep randomly).
Summary: Good laptop, extremely heavy. has good features, nice itched aluminum body and good looking design but there are better alternatives in the market. personally I like to have a 17 inch laptop like this on the sofa in the living room for guest use. but i tend to use the Sony Vaio Z3 everywhere with me as my personal, it is lighter in weight and has a 1080p screen with outstanding features.
Will add fifth star when I figure out how to use this thing.

Summary: I am a Mac user from way back. I used a Mac with no hard drive, just the 1.4 mg disks. Why? Because Apple appeals to my lack of engineering abilities. Macs are for lazy people who look forward to a world run by helpful, sexless robots. It is amazing so far, but the distance that remains between Apple and the PC world is less a real distinction of culture than' preventing customers from the ability to make choices as opposed to selections that are standardized and...
Summary: Got this laptop for around 500 new. Loving it, gobs of power, room to expand. If you want it to be ninja, get a SSD drive as the main and use the built in drive to hold your "stuff" I added 16 gb of ram, a 120gb SSD hdd, and a bluetooth dongle. Great machine, the screen is gorgeous and huge Cons: great huge screen. Very powerful backlit keyboard expansion room for 2nd hdd and another 24gb of ram good speakers Cons: Heavy... Like really heavy..
Summary: it is fast, really. nice screen. but the keyboard space bar require you to hit it in theexact middle and EXTRA hard for the space key to work. so get it repair under warranty? this is when you find out there is only one option to pack it up and send it into toshiba for service. no local authorized repair centers available. will notlet you payfor thepart, repalce and return defective keyboard for credit.
