Summary: What a superb price for this laptop , well made and very up to date ... sadly we experienced issues with it needing to re-configure taking 20 minutes each time. As we could not cure it we returned it .. great shame as we had purchased associated products for it.
Summary: I bought it for my 80 year old husband, who has been computer literate for several years.He is having terrible trouble with windows8, and would dearly like to go back to a simpler system where there are fewer hidden manouvers
Summary: the laptop came in lovely condition, boxed nicely, windows 8 installed nothing to complain about, it even came the next morning! the one problem i have is that the mouse does not work! i have even added a mouse through usb and it still does not work!
Summary: Hate hate hate Windows 8!!! EUCH. I find the mouse a bit plasticy and doesn't always respond. As i said in the heading it does the job but at the moment i am typing this on Mum-in-laws laptop, which is FAR easier and nicer to use!!!
Summary: Received this laptop today, noticed immediately that keyboard was defective as letter 'Q' appeared when key 'A' was pressed followed by letter 'A'. Soon became worse as a string of Q's appeared when 'A ' was pressed. Have had to return laptop, very poor quality control on the part of Toshiba.
Summary: just bought mine from ecom computers in Sydney. My second Satellite, this one is disappointing with the rough touchpad, power cord port on the LEFT - illogical to me - and the USB ports are tight, making it difficult to remove the USBs. DVD tray looks flimsy. Overall not as well made as my old Satellite 585. Feels lighter and not as solid.
Pros: familiar - used older Toshiba Satellite 585 prior to this one
Cons: power cord input on the left. USB ports tight. Flimsy DVD tray
Summary: I am a bit disappointed with this laptop. Firstly the top panel that surrounds the keyboard is very thin and when you use the touch pad I get a clicking noise all the time where this panel hits the disk drive draw. Also when using the keyboard it moves up and down. The other thing is the textured finger panel that would be ok if the touch pad was not textured also, This gives a slightly annoying feeling and not a smooth operation and dos not do what you want it to all of...
