Summary: Pro-fast Con: Spacebar worked about 15% of the time. I have to backspace to add spaces all the time. I learned a way to whack the spacebar to get it to work up to 50% of the time. WiFi adapter would constantly drop its connection to the router at every place I used it. It drops connections in 15 min to 2 hours. It doesn't always want to reset its connection, making a reboot necessary.
Summary: Having always been an HP guy, I thought I would give Toshiba a chance. I am a photographer and use my laptop at least 8 hours a day. Ive been using this comouter for about two weeks now, but have already ordered another HP and when it comes in , the Toshiba is going back. The problms I have had: There is a slight yellow tint given to the display in order to warm things up a bit for the viewer, but that does not allow for true colors to come through, and I need to it to...
Summary: I just bought this and my family were so excited only to be disappointed that this laptop can't connect to our home wifi. I contacted Toshiba and the device was reset for 5 hours but still have same problem. I'll s return this to warehouse & switch to a same model and hope the wireless card for the new laptop will work.
Summary: This Toshiba laptop would appear to push all the right buttons when It come to specifications, but realistically I would not consider this laptop for anyone who does content creation or even regular multimedia consumption for one simple reason; the screen is horrendous!

Great computer but takes an eternity to boot up UGH!!
14 November 2013
Summary: The computer it self is awesome super fast, touchscreen, runs windows 8. BUT since the first day I had it it took 5 minutes to boot up. My 8 year old computer that it was replacing takes less time then that!!! Also it is 5 or 6lbs but that is my fault because I needed a CD drive and wasn't willing to pay extra for a light weight computer. (Don't judge me too harshly!
Pros: Very fast, lots of cool new features, touch screen, 3 usb ports, cd/dvd drive
Cons: OH MY GOD did I just die waiting for this computer to start-up?
Not as good as the T-Sat., s75-A7222 at Costco for 999
10 August 2013
Summary: There is a much better laptop offer that no one is reporting nor is there any reviews on. Toshiba offers a Satellite s75-A7222 for $999 at cost-co that has 16GB RAM and 1TB HDD. I don't understand why no one is raving about it.
