very happy with the machine, windows 8 is frustrating

Carol NYC, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Just like others have said, the machine is great: the keyboard feels comfortable, screen looks great, sound is good. But windows 8 is just confusing. Hopefully the updates will help. But I highly recommend this laptop!

Last years model. Not the S5166

Brian Buck, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: Did not actually receive an S5166. I received an S5373, which by all research is a year older model. It performs well but it seems I should have at least gotten a reply from the retailer when I sent him notification of this minor detail. Other than that the computer has worked for everything we needed it to.

Nice laptop, just needs a few things.

gel, Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: I have been using this laptop for over a month now, and so far I really like it. It's very fast, has a nice look, and the screen is the perfect size. I only wish the battery life was longer, had back-lit keys, and didn't heat up so quickly. A laptop fan is a must!

Buy it, but beware when comparing CPU clock speeds. And a few Win8 tips.

C. Eastman "privacyisaright", Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: Love it so far. Would have been 5 stars, but read on.... I found this item on Amazon but bought it directly from Adorama, only because I called to be sure it was in stock and they offered me free next day shipping at the same price. One caution: Adorama advertises this with the correct CPU clock speed - 1.7 GHz; Amazon deceptively uses the "max turbo speed" of 2.6 GHz. I was a little disappointed when I went into the system properties and saw the lower number.

Very solid stats at this price

dh999 "dhaue", Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: I chose this as a very solid system (processor, memory, hard drive) for its price, not as the lightest or coolest. It fits that very well and works well as a general utility system (ie, NOT a gaming system). With all that said, it is fairly light with the downside that it FEELS light.... not sure if this would work well carrying it every day, not sure how it'd hold up. I would also like to point out that "Blue Brushed Aluminum" refers to the color and pattern.

Great laptop very useful!!

Jose Pablo Valverde, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I believe that laptop is very versatile and works great. Windows 7 applications, works well with Windows 8. It has a cool design, and it's quite light and thinner than many others. The screen has a very good resolution, and is generally very useful for home or work. For the price, design and quality, highly recommended. Case of video games emulators, as PSP2, the video card isn't works well.

Knocking off a star for crapware, Toshiba :(

T. Pritchett, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: Lots of crapware, Toshiba. Not appreciated. Why are WildTangent games "system apps" that are nearly iimpossible to uninstall (not in Add/Remove Programs! I used Revo Uninstaller to find that these "games" were "system drivers", which is tricky of you, Toshiba!). I got the WildTangent games forcibly removed (msg me to find out how), but it was an unpleasant experience. Worth the effort, though, since WIldTangent now includes whoppers like World of Warcraft!!

  • Summary: I want you to know, that I brought it to Argentine, and that I have to get yous to it. Mean while, I'm practicing Win 8, that I didn''t know nothing about it.
