Excerpt: The saying you get what you pay for definately applies to this product. We were shopping at walmart for groceries about 6 months and happened to see a toshiba satellite laptop that was a special deal. We paid about 350 dollards for it. Well, ever since we brought it home it has given us problems. First the laptop froze and we had to find a toshiba approved laptop repair shop which was not that easy.
Excerpt: When I first bought the laptop it was one of the new types and it was the best kind on the market. The computer had Windows Vista installed on it which is quite possibly one of the most useless programs ever and because of it I have had more problems with my laptop computer over 3 years than I have had wiht any of my other computers combined. The laptop takes too long to start up after a complete shutdown and it also takes too long to actually shut down.
