Disappointing unit with bad internet connectivity.
18 January 2015
Summary: Looks flash but no dash. Wifi receiver sucks on this unit and I'm seriously considering returning it. Internet connectivity is a major issue. Heavy unit also. The only cool factor is the touch screen, however screen doesn't fold back so touch screen becomes a moot point. Processor is slow considering specs. Overall a real disappointment since it does not perform anywhere near the specs it provides.
Summary: I really like my new Toshiba. I had an HP with AMD processor and the fan was loud and it started overheating. Toshiba is my favorite for a laptop computer, because I had one before. I would recommend them to anyone.
Summary: This laptop replaced my HP Windows 8 laptop because I could not stand the new "metro" operating system. It took me a while to find a laptop with all the specs I wanted, and windows 7, but here it is. This laptop is excellent. Toshiba Satellite laptops are really superb. This will be my 2nd satellite. It's fast, the screen is great, the backlit keyboard helps a lot, the speakers sound great, and there's plenty of RAM and hard drive space to go around.
Decent laptop till it breaks, then terrible customer service!!

Summary: Laptop was great until the hard drive stopped working. I called customer support and they had me step through the process of restoring from the restore partition. After restoring from the partition, it would not longer boot and since the laptop was now blank they said it was a software problem and that they would not provide recovery media even though it was their idea to restore it. They charged $39 for the recovery and then $200 for the new hard drive.

Summary: A very nice machine with large screen of 17 inches. Great specs in terms of processor (latest quad-core i7), 16GB RAM and large capacity of HDD (1TB). A big bonus is the Win 7 pro operating system which alone is worth $150 on market. I've been sick of Windows 8. It runs my programs really fast. I haven't tested the battery life since it's always connected with power cord. The screen is crystal clear although it's not full HD.

Summary: It's beautiful. It's even better than it seems in the pictures. I'm loving it. It's been a bit slow on a tiny couple of things I've tried, but maybe it's my wifi or something. All and alla, I love my new pc.
