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: 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: 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!
Summary: I ordered the laptop because I was having problems with my laptop that had XP on it. I couldn't upgrade anything on it so decided I would bite the bullet and order a new one. I first tried a refurbished one that wasn't the S800 series. Of course I didn't order it through Amazon which was my first mistake.
Summary: I love this computer especially how solid it feels and how beautifully it operates. I really do not like the desigh of Windows 8 and believe that once again Microsoft truly dropped the ball by not allowing the user to chose between the standard desktop environment or the new Windows 8 Ipad environment as if they are trying to force people to use what they created no matter how inconvenient or innappropriate it is for a laptop computer environment.
