Problem with battery

Nargiz, Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: Nice design ultrabook, but battery is dead. It is not charging. I have had several battery issues with Toshiba in the past. SO probably will move away from Toshiba, and look for DELL or something else.

Good for the price

Haishan Xiong, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: The machine works smoothly and fast Enough for my everyday uses. I like the thinness and lightness, two of the main draws I bought it. I noticed that the keyboard is not what I like it to be. It feels very "hard" on the fingers. The touchpad is flush with the hand rest so it always gets in the way when I type. I learned to disable it when I type emails. It is inconvenient.

Decent Entry Level Ultrabook

R. Mareddy, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: I've always been skeptical about buying Toshiba's ultrabooks but decided to take a chance on this one as it was coming for $499 with a $100 Amazon GC. So effectively an ultrabook for $399. I am happy with the product but feel the display is a bit downer. It isn't bright enough. Except that everything else works really good. It is surprisingly light making it easier to lift with a single hand. It is very solidly built too. All the function keys work well.

Quality hardware, firmware is iffy

Travis Raines, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: Installed Linux on it. It may be possible to get it to work in UEFI mode, but it appears to be difficult and the firmware doesn't give much feedback as to what went wrong. Switching to BIOS-compatability worked, though it's not preferable. Not sure if the magic SSD cache technology is working. Other firmware oddities: - The F-keys default to their special functions, (because it's a Mac! really!
