Good cheap laptop
28 January 2015
Excerpt: I needed a reasonably priced mid range laptop to replace mine that had a broken screen. The Toshiba satellite c850 seemed to fit the bill nicely for what I needed, something with good speed, and good memory, but not too expensive. I use the laptop regularly but not for anything 'hardcore' as such, just mainly for browsing the internet, email, storing pictures and watching youtube videos. This is brilliant for all of that and more.
Summary: After having owned a Toshiba Satellite P200-IK8 I am disappointed with the build quality of this rebuild, model, especially as a new one was advertised at £800.00. This model, is made from cheaper materials, the screen/lid does not have a lock and there are less ports, than I am used to. Furthermore, I found that the battery hatch door was not closed properly, because one of the plastic recess points, that receive the lugs on the door was distorted and broken.
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.
Excerpt: Halfway through last year, my Dell had finally reached the end of its useful life. I sought help from my University for problems affecting my course and discovered I was eligible for Disabled Students Allowance. Included within this, I managed to get my computer replaced, with the Toshiba Satellite Pro. My dad has a Toshiba and I’ve generally thought it to be a reliable brand, so I was pleased. The price was just under £400 at the time I received it.
Pros: Very reliable and good quality machine
Cons: Nothing fancy, and Windows 8 not to everyone's taste !
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!
