Good enough

  • Summary: It is compact, nice texture, solid and upgradable. I recommend it it all sorts of students. It would be better if it had microsoft office of windows 8.1 or pro.

Overall good value...

phil, Amazon

  • Summary: First thing I did was to get windows 8 removed - not very straightforward but nowhere near as difficult as you may have been led to believe! Using SSD drive as essentially a boot drive is a nice touch but I can't test it on my Linux Mint installation because in my haste to rid myself of Windows 8 (and get round it's so called "safe boot" and UEFI technologies) I installed the OS on the main hard drive instead of the SSD!

Great features but disappointing

  • Summary: I got this laptop initially because it hit all the sweet spots: Sub £400 price, SSD, 14'', backlit keyboard. But this is a simple case of one component unravelling the entire purchase - the hard drive. But first the pros of this laptop: Lightweight - doesn't feel heavy on your lap Backlit keyboard - no more squinting in the dark to see which letter you hit SSD - One of the only laptops at this price point which offer an SSD Windows 8 - Yes, I'm listing this as a big plus...

Don't have anything bad to say!

Sarah, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this laptop! It is the perfect weight and size as I am a student and so have to bring it to college a lot, my last laptop was a Toshiba as well and it lasted 5 years so I was keen on another Toshiba and this one didn't let me down! It is unbelievable quality for the price. A lot of people complain about windows 8 but I personally really like windows 8 and find the swipe options very useful and handy even on this non-touch screen.

I didn't think I would hate windows 8 this much (can't enjoying using the laptop yet)

CA, Amazon

  • Summary: Windows 8 is awful. There is no need for it. It makes everything so much more complicated and stupid. There was nothing wrong with the old format. It worked well and everyone knew how to use it. Then they decide to make it like a phone/tablet. God awful set up and seems to make everything so much slower. It is a shame because I think this laptop would be ok but using windows 8 is such a horrible experience.

  • Summary: I tried to start up this new pc and it failed several times with "major error" - obviously no quality control atall. I cannot give a review as it never worked?? Amazon return policy though very efficient.

Nice laptop but terrible sound quality

jennie cadd, Amazon

  • Summary: I decided to buy a Toshiba as I had a Toshiba Equium before which I was very happy with. However, I have to say that I am a little disappointed. My last Toshiba had excellent sound quality but i have to say this new Toshiba has possibly the worse speakers that I've come across on a laptop. I have had to buy exterior speakers in order to listen to anything at all.
