Summary: only after about 5 months of usage the hard drive crashed ...........seemed like a really nice computer at first, only issue was getting use to windows 8 ........but then about 2 weeks ago it started running really slow, It would take 5 minutes to even write something in Microsoft word and that was just trying to write one word. You could not get it to shut down on its own .......so after about all day of dealing with this ...we rebooted the computer and guess what?????
Summary: My husband and I are not onboard with the Microsoft 8 change. This computer is fast, the offset touchpad is nice, but super sensitive....in a sometimes frustrating kind of way. Makes me miss the conventional mouse on a wire on a daily basis.
Summary: At the price I paid? I'm satisfied. The battery life isn't as wondrous as I'd hoped....the display is really good most of the time....some angles aren't grand....but still high quality.....though the sound is MUCH better than I'd hope it would be. Lightweight for the size. Great look to the entire device.
Summary: I was looking for a window's 8 computer for a while and then I saw this Toshiba laptop. It was the right price with the features I was looking for, specifically quad core. It takes time getting used to the new windows. It definitely is different to previous windows, but once you get the hang of it, you'll enjoy working with it. One thing: There is no mention of it on the product, but according to Intel, it is a quad core.
