Summary: I bought it, waited a week, was told they were out of stock, and got my money back three days later. If it wasn't a third party seller, I'd be done with amazon. As it is, I'm going to go take a look over to take a look at Ebay.
Summary: I bought this laptop a year ago at office depot, it is a great laptop, preforms at very high speeds, it says 2.3 ghz but it boosts to 3.3 Ghz. It is incredibly fast and I would recommend personally if it already isn't to update it to windows 8. It does even better on windows 8. The only problem I have is that the hard drive well broke, it was declared as a defect at office depot. Toshiba helped me on the phone, get it registered, and get it shipped off for repairs.
Summary: URBANTEKKA SOLD ME THIS LAPTOP ON NOVEMBER 15, TWO MONTHS LATER THE OS WINDOWS 8 FAILED, I E MAILED THEM FOR HELP SEVERAL TIMES TO NO AVAIL, THEY DID NOT REPLIED MY E MAILS. I TOOK THE LAPTOP TO A LOCAL COMPUTER SHOP AND THEY DIAGNOSED IT AS HAVING A BAD HARD DRIVE... SHAME ON YOU URBANTEKKA FOR SELLING A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT WHICH I'M SURE YOU KNEW ABOUT IT!!!
Summary: 1. There are scratches on the laptop body and screen. 2. The laptop didn't do any application clean when it was sold. There are many games in it. It is difficult to clean them unless re-install the OS.
Over heat and DVD player noise issue - Dont buy!! WORST customer service and Repair center
6 February 2014
Summary: It has over heat and very noise issue... Since I have a warranty I called customer service and explained about my issue. They asked me to Ship my laptop on my own expenses then they will take care of these issues without any cost. Once I shipped they sent one email saying that I have to pay $ 308 including labor charge and taxes. Again I called them asked about this, for that they are telling after 6 days some of the parts will not cover under warranty.
Summary: I got this as a refurbished unit. It was packed well, and the price was excellent savings over a brand new model. This is an update and replacement for an older HP ProBook, who gave up the ghost just days after I got the unit. The I-7 chip and 8GB memory give me good speed and the performance of the laptop meets my expectations. This is my first Toshiba. Time will tell how good this laptop is, but I have been using it for 6 weeks now, and I am happy with my purchase.
Summary: And this is not the only model with heat issues I checked online and a lot of people have the same message about problem with cooling system, shudown comuputer and send in to service center. You would think that a company this large would address issues that are not isolated to one product and fix them before sending out models using the same type of cooling system. I am sending in this laptop for service hope it doesn't take for ever to get fixed.
Pros: Fast, good Graphics
Cons: over heats, especially when playing games it shutdown unexpectedly.
