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.
Summary: Pro's - light weight, good battery life, can carry it easily in a bag. Worth for the price. Con's - doesn't have a CD drive,but that's the reason it's light weight, the speakers are not all that great, keyboard isn't with a back light. If you want a light weight laptop then this is a good product if the cons don't matter much to you.
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.
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.
Excellent Computer but ethernet port is only running at100 speed
28 January 2013
Summary: Purchased from Amazon July 2012. Enjoyed Traveling with computer light weight and good battery life. Miss the numeric key pad and the mouse pad buttons do not work if you are touching the other mouse pad button. Only surprise was the slow ethernet port. 100 speed is ok, but seems like it should be 1000 speed.
Summary: I've just used it for a few days but so far very happy. The greatest thing about this computer is it's weight. It is very light and easy to carry around. I had a netbook before but decided to go for something bigger but still wanted something very portable. I don't need the dvd so I don't miss it. We use it mostly for Word and internet and it's pretty fast. Easy to set up. Only thing I don't like is the mouse buttons. They are hard to click - especially right click.
