Summary: I bought this laptop 2 years ago. Since then, it's been slowly (quickly considering the timeframe) deteriorating. After about a year the trackpad started having issues; i could no longer use it to scroll down pages.
My computer is a lemon, but Toshiba offered no help after 30 days.

Summary: about every half hour (used to be less frequently) I lose my internet connection. it's the computer, not my internet, because my old HP continues to slog through while this piece of stuff Toshiba I bought myself for Christmas in 2013 has had this problem since about day 2.
