Summary: I like the large monitor, and the solid feel of this laptop, though it is a bit heavy to carry around. I have had it nearly two years now and a few issues have arisen: 1. The screen is highly reflective and using it in a bright room, even when adjusting the brightness, is a problem. 2. I have a reasonably good touch typing technique, but often manage to touch the CTRL key and/or the left of the touchpad when going for the left shift key.
Summary: First the positives. This is a relatively slim laptop that offers impressive build quality, decent performance for general tasks and a good battery life (which can be further extended by utilising Toshiba's "Eco Utility" to optimise all Windows settings to maximise efficiency). Connectivity is excellent with just about everything you could wish for; HDMI, eSATA and USB 3.0 ports, not to mention Bluetooth.
Summary: This laptop performs well, there are 2 things that let it down. the first is the sound system which is very poor, the worst ive heard on a laptop. The second is the face recognition software which worked when i put my cat in front of the screen !
Summary: I've read the other three reviews and can't disagree with the negative reviews enough. The speed of the machine is above average for what the laptop is designed for and who it is targeted to. Business users and IT professionals. Being an IT pro, the first thing I did when I received the laptop was take an image of the hard disk as it was shipped (with all the bloatware) before wiping it and installing a retail copy of Windows 7 x64 Professional.
Summary: Despite what sounded like great spec (i5 Sandy Bridge, 6Gb RAM, USB 3.0, Bluetooth, hard-drive protection and new cooling) this laptop can best be described as 'average'. Apart from lacking a graphics card, it seemed to have everything I was looking for in a new laptop, including a (temporarily) low price. The battery life is very good (I've used it for at least 4-5 hours without plugging in) and it is certainly very quiet in use.
Summary: having got this laptop for uni work(programming and other programs that require heavy use of the processor) I've found its battery life is quite impressive, its keyboard could be better but i've not reli had a problem with it so far, it looks quite dull on the outside but the screen is nice and bright and crystal clear. the processor is good and upto anything you throw at it, aswell as its graphics card etc.
Pros: battery lifes good, powerful, plenty of memory and its light
Cons: keyboard could be a little bit better for the price, looks are dull

Summary: What can I say about this Laptop other than I love it. Oh let me count the ways, its fast, it has huge amounts of memory and it has some unique features that really make this item special. It's lightweight (weighing in at 2.5 kilos) has an 8 hour battery lifespan and really is a wonderful piece of kit as its wireless.
Excerpt: Приобрела этот ноутбук в 2012 году.Очень достойные характеристики.Жесткий диск вместителен,тактовая частота достойная.Служит мне верой и правдой.Водонепроницаемая клавиатура,хороший дизайн.Если нет вирусов и система охлаждения в нормальном состоянии буквально летает.Хорош для игр и работы.Разбирать непрофессионалам не следует-очень сложная схема разборки.Пожалуй,это единственный минус.
