Summary: I very much love this computer. I've never had a Toshiba product before, but my father upgraded his computer from a Dell to a Toshiba and he has had it for a couple of years now and it's been working fantastically. So, I was expecting the same with mine. I was not disappointed.
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.
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.
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.
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...
