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: Very good computer, it does the work and it's fast enough. In the beginning I wasn't happy with windows 8, but once you get into it, you love it. I like also the size of the screen and that it has a numeric pad.
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: For the price of $660 new, this is well worth it. The i7 is blazing fast, the radeon card kicks and plays games like Skyrim. Everything on it is great. Trackpad is great too. The only thing it could use is a backlit keyboard. Nice!
