Excerpt: Maybe the computer is, but for sure not Staples customer care. One star for them. They keep sending me these on line servers but when I rank them one star no one cares enough to bother to call me, so sad for them. If a customer drops $1000.00 all they want to know is what else they can sell u and if you have one of there rewards cards so that they can utterly pound your email each and everyday. They just want to sell not support.
Excerpt: Haven't had the Toshiba too long but, so far, very pleased. It has the feel and look of a quality product. Fast and quiet. Can handle multiple tasks at the same time. The non-touch screen with a wireless mouse is working just fine. And, no reason to be concerned about Windows 8. I really have not learned that yet but am doing well with what seems to be very much like the old Windows 7. If you can get it at a good sale price and need the power, go for it.
Excerpt: We picked the Toshiba because we have an older Satellite that has been very reliable. Also, this model was nicely priced and loaded with features. Only downside is having to learn Windows 8 but with time this should be ok. Also, the power cord from the old Satellite is same as the new one, so it makes it easy to share power from location to location. Very happy with this product and its features.
Pros: Good Value, I7 Processor For Good, Professional Weight
Excerpt: I've tried to like this lap top. The mouse locks up, should you accidently touch the mouse pad in the wrong spot your page changes and disrupts what you're doing. I'm typing this on my old Gateway and will be returning the Toshiba to Staples today. It's been the most frustrating computer I've encountered, even had my IT guy give it a go and he agreed that the mouse pad is a terrible design.
Excerpt: This laptop replaces a 7 year old laptop running on win XP. This one runs on win8.1. I am still getting used to 8.1 but it is OK. As I said, it is very fast and boots up in seconds, unlike the old one. The only complaint has to do with the display, which by the way, is quite good for most things. That said, I will probably do most of my photography on the old machine because its display is better. Small movements of the head cause image quality on the Toshiba to vary.
Pros: Doesn't Jam, Good display, light weight, Lots Of Memory, Very Fast
