Summary: I am using this laptop to rate this purchase. I had a little difficult at first but amazon was brilliant with directing me to the right people and it was sorted out very quickly. Best bargain of my life.
Summary: I hate laptops and so it is amazing that I've given this one the score that I have. I don't like the track-pad - it feels cheap and 'plasticky' (if that is even a word). Same goes for the case. However, it is a relatively new computing device for me and came with Windows 7 64 Bit Pro, so it was able to run many XP apps. It also came with Windows 8 as an 'upgrade', but I may as well put the CD in the microwave right now, as I will never install that rubbish.
Summary: We Purchased this lap top in September 2013 It was always very slow to boot up and its performance did not compare with an old single core lap top we have. For some unknown reason the Many of the keyboard keys stopped working about one month ago. I returned the Laptop to the retailer (not Amazon) It took Toshiba UK 10 days to collect the Laptop from them to take it away from repair and they are now asking me to pay to remove a Bios Pass word I did not put on the Lap top...
Summary: This laptop is totally useless. It retains nothing, it clicks and clunks and will not download anything from a cd. Now for the best bit! I bought Microsoft Outlook and Office for an extra £200 ish and guess what? Every time this stupid machine upgrades I lose the lot. I then have to speak to someone on the other side of the planet for up to 2hours, yes 2 hours to reconfigure. Pathetic, awful and pants.
Summary: I have had this laptop for 3 weeks now. I have put 200 photos on it, 400 songs, downloaded java. It is now so slow, I can open a new tab in the browser...go away to make coffee and toast...Its still won't have loaded when I get back. I can't work on a word document as well as have a broswer open as the response time is ridiculously slow.
Summary: I brought this item for my Daughter who is doing GCSE's and needed a new laptop, the laptop arrived in the specified time and that is the only thing good about the buy. when my daughter turned the laptop it blanked out, so she allowed time for the machine to stay off whilst on the charger. but the problem was never corrected, i contacted Amazon who sent me to the seller as it appears the seller was a 3rd party.
