Excerpt: Overall, I like this laptop a lot. I opted for the larger screen because I mostly use this at home. The screen clarity is excellent. The only complaint I have is the touchpad. I do not like the design of the touchpad. I prefer to have left and right buttons. With this design, I often accidentially move the mouse when trying to do a left or right click. The area of the mouse buttons is a bit too small and makes it harder to use.
Summary: The computer itself if awesome and worth the money with larger hard drive and memory. It is a little difficult learning and mastering Windows 8, it' nothing like Windows 7 or XP, but the challenge is going smoother everyday. I would suggest buying a Windows 8 book for dummies in an effort to obtain a better understanding of the operating system.
Summary: The computer seems to be doing everything I expect so far. The challenge is getting used to Windows 8. The touch screen is a nice feature, especially to zoom and change font sizes. But learning Windows 8 otherwise is interesting, since I don't like to read manuals.
Summary: I would recommend this computer to anyone. Easy to use, has the great name: Toshiba, which is very reliable and is a real powerful computer for this price. Highly recommend. Windows 8 is fine, just have to get use to it and my husband who is not computer savvy is learning on it and loves the speed of it.
Summary: If you study various laptop products and what is available it doesn't take long to see this package has great feratures for today but with a touch screen will also provide benefits in the future.
