Summary: Good laptop, however there are KNOWN issues with this line regarding poor soldering jobs that cause massive issues. This computer itself was running wonderfully without a single problem until last night (I bought it late in the year last year), then suddenly - problems.
Summary: After purchasing Dell computers for years and unhappy about the decrease in quality, I decided to switch computer manufacturers. After a lot of research, I originally purchased an HP but due to a variety of problems on HP's side, eventually canceled that order and went with this Toshiba model.
Summary: I'm only giving this product 3 stars because it just didn't have the features I needed. It does not have a back-lit keyboard, which I think a laptop at that price range should. In addition, there was no bluetooth capability.
Good laptop, but don't install the AMD Graphics update from Windows!

Summary: I've had this laptop for about a month, my third Toshiba in the last 8 years. The HD graphics are amazing, but Windows Update keeps installing a Graphics Adapter update that is not compatible with this laptop.
love the machine, a little less thrilled with windows 8

Summary: I love this computer,the speakers are loud enough to watch shows (unlike my old laptop) and the keyboard is comfortable.I also like the placement of the mouse, I am not accidentally hitting it every 5 seconds.
Summary: I owned a Toshiba and an HP laptop in recent years (my son adopted my HP). The performance of this Toshiba is good, the style is fine, the touchpad is smooth - although I use an extra monitor and wireless keyboard and mouse, and the price was great.
