Lot of pros for the price but with a few cons

Matt Stafford, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: A great laptop for the price (I got this for 499.00 on Cyber Monday) however, it's not without a few problems (I've owned this for about a year and a half at the time of this review). The bad news: (1) Casing is metal but not Macbook Air aluminum but rather some kind of fragile painted metal skin that I still can't tell what it is made of. Looks cool at first but the paint starts wearing off and you see spots (looks cheap) where the metal paint or metal skin wears off.

Purchased 2 of these and had to return each for different reasons. DO NOT BUY!

Rebecca Dulemba, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: The laptop is great in theory. Lightweight, very powerful, attractive, etc. However, I have now purchased 2 of these laptops (from the exact same vendor so maybe that has something to do with it, but who knows) and the first one had to be returned because the hard drive failed to boot. I then paid for a second one and now, after 6 months of normal, everyday use, has begun to overheat to the point that it started to shake and shut down without prompt.

Toshiba is great, but Windows 8 is bad

JGL, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I like this Toshiba, but initially I had a lot of trouble typing things. The touch pad was too sensitive to be useful. Every little motion made the cursor jump to random places for both Word and email typing. It was so frustrating. Eventually someone helped me get rid of hot keys and then all the mouse functions. I am fine now. My suggestion to you is to ask the customer if they want Windows 8; don't just install it blindly.

Toshiba U845 review

Rick Shaw, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: Everything is good except for one slight problem. The space bar on the keyboard doesn't register unless you push down with emphasis. If you don't, you will have words run together. Other than that, it's working just fine for my needs.

Died in two days

S. Baldridge "sbaldridge", Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: Had to send back to site I purchased it from. The SSD failed within two days of arrival at my house. Not the fault of the site I purchased from, this was a hardware issue on a brand new computer.
