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: Overall, for the price, this is a good product. However I am finding that it has slowed down a lot and can't seem to cope with tasks as well as other machines of a similar price. I am going to upgrade the RAM rather than change the machine, though, as I do really like it!
Excerpt: "...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. I have now been using it for around 6 months. ===Appearance and Aesthetics=== The laptop has a 15.6inch screen with an inch margin around it, so it is rather large, so would need a large bag for carrying. The laptop is heavy for a small person ...
Pros: Very reliable and good quality machine
Cons: Nothing fancy, and Windows 8 not to everyone's taste !
Summary: A basic laptop that goes further than the basics. My wife loves it, she can use it in the lounge etc. the screen is clear and the laptop well made, she has no reservations with it at all, if I did not prefer my Mac I would strongly consider this machine.
Summary: For it's price it's good with its core i3 (I bought this in January 2013, around the £350 mark I believe, not sure what it's like now). However, the whole thing is a little flimsy (granted I have had this for best part of a year and am quite rough with it). For example one of the keys on the keyboard on mine has come a bit loose and I can feel it starting to happen with others too, and I have broken the headphone jack, although that's my fault really for accidentally...

Summary: Although a good machine that is not only quick but I hope as reliable as I expect Toshiba to be, I am rather disappointed because days after purchasing it I start seeing adverts for faster and better spec machines for a lot cheaper than I have paid for this one. I would normally carry one complaining, but in this case I wont as I have found since looking at the other machines, I can see the difference is not only in speed of other the machines, which is not much...
