Summary: a lousy laptop - keyboards didnt work - fixed twice so out of action for several weeks - then charger stopped working/ melted - will never buy a toshiba laptop again - and never buy in currys again lousy service next time will spend £500 - £600 on a laptop without the name toshiba
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.
Summary: One word: Fragile. I bought this computer, largely because it had a reasonable price and seemingly generous RAM. Everything seemed well until I tried to gently lift the thing up by the corner, causing the screen to omit a disconcerting crack sound. Of course, it now no longer works. Further investigation revealed that there is a sizeable cavity behind the screen and the casing, which means that pretty much anything but the most gentle of handling will most likely to lead...
Summary: Bought this product and when it arrived it was not working unless i removed the battery, i contacted toshiba and they sent me a new battery as they thought this was the problem, this failed to solve the issue so i had to send the laptop off for repair. when it arrived back from toshiba 'repair' it was actually working even worse than before as it would no longer even turn on...
Summary: I recently purchased this particular Toshiba laptop ( not from Amazon, I should add) and have had nothing but trouble with the piece of junk. On reading recent feedback on various forums, I found that there are many, many people out there who have had similar experiences with Toshiba. Windows 8 is also absolute rubbish. You don't have to take my word for all this, purchase a Toshiba laptop with Windows 8 and you'll see for yourself.
Slow, mousepad has a mind of its own, speakers faulty.

Summary: Brought this had it for a day and the speakers decided to stop working for no apparent reason. The mouse freezes for ages and sometimes I had to turn the laptop off by the power button as a result. It is so slow my old Toshiba which I needed this model to replace because it is so old and slow is faster. For the price good size and windows 8 is Ok once you get used to it.
