Summary: Switched over from HP to Toshiba for the first time.Will not recommend this laptop to anyone.Frames keeps on freezing and then I need to restart the computer. Will definitely not go Toshiba again.
Summary: I got this this laptop for (business) travel, and with the quad-core i7 Intel processor it's faster and more powerful than my desktop. The 17" display is easy to see, even with my aging eyes! And the with 750Gb hard drive I will (probably) never run out of room. This should be the last laptop I have to buy before I retire in 4-years!
Summary: Prior to my alienware i had a Sony Laptop. Wife needed a new laptop and she wanted to get a Toshiba. With my sony, i had a fan break. Sony had a technician come out to my home, clean laptop and replace fan free of charge. Now, wife's laptop is less than a year old and one of the screws on the hinge that connects the screen to the keyboard came off and it sags.
Summary: Great laptop. They have upgraded the keys so that you don't have to press so hard while typing. Only flaw is Windows 8. But I downloaded Start Menu 8 by IOBIT and that solved a lot of problems.
Summary: I really have enjoyed this laptop. The battery would not charge when I first received it---it worked just fine with the power cord plugged in. I called Toshiba about this issue and in no time I had a brand new battery shipped to me and it works like a charm now. I love the keyboard on this---I am very particular about keyboards and this one is great! I did a lot of research about laptops before purchasing and I don't think that there is a better laptop for the money.
Summary: I've been using this laptop for 9 months now. My favorite thing about it is the battery life, it lasts a long time for a pc. The things I don't like are: 1) the touchpad - it has a griddy texture on it, so if you use the touchpad a lot, you will eventually get a callous on your finger. It's uncomfortable so I had to get a wireless mouse and I have to carry it around with me. (My previous laptop did not have this texture and I used it for 8 years no problem.
