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'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.
Summary: So, I bought this laptop several months back and love it. But, my only problem is that-from what I can tell in the pictures-it looks like this computer should be able to play Blu-Ray discs. But, this afternoon, I tried to watch my Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray on it and it just says there's no disc. I've checked the disc, itself, and it's fine. It plays on my blu-ray player for my TV but not on my computer. So, I'm not sure if it's the computer or I'm just reading the ad wrong.
Summary: I purchased this computer several months ago and I've avoided writing a review because I don't like writing negative reviews about a product. So I'm going to begin with the positives: This is a beautiful looking computer. It's sleek and stylish. I'm not even going to complain about having to get used to Windows 8. I've dealt with difficult programs before and I'll eventually master it.
Summary: Definitely a fast machine. I'm finding the battery life very adequate, it seems to run longer than it is rated. I don't like the fact, and perhaps I have not found out the way to do it, that I cannot turn off the touch pad. I like to use a mouse for some things. The keyboard is not backlit. Having said that, I would recommend this machine, I'm happy with the purchase. This is my third Toshiba Satellite laptop. Delivery was quick.
Summary: This product is everything is says it is, except that it does NOT have a four hour battery life. It dies within two hours every time I use it, starting with a full charge. I wish it had a keyboard backlight, but it's not listed in the description so I wasn't surprised by this. Overall, it's a great laptop for the price, but does not even compare to a MacBook. Even with this new laptop, I find myself using my husbands Mac all the time because it's so easy to use.
Summary: Product was delivered on top and was definitely as good as advertised. Beautiful appearance. Extremely light and lighting response for web search and downloads. WINDOWS 8 is crazy, but I'll get used to it. GREAT PRODUCT!!
Summary: I'd shopped around for several months and narrowed it down to this and another model that cost $400 more... for the same specs. The other model, you were literally paying for the manufacturer's name. I've owned two other Toshibas and both lasted me over four years each, so I'm pretty confident in the Toshiba brand. This thing has a better GPU than the two cards I have Crossfired in my desktop and handles everything I throw at it.
