YMMV but its a good deal if you're willing to compromise

Kamel, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: I've owned this laptop for ~18 months and I'd probably buy an identical model today if it were to get lost/stolen/damaged. However, what floats my boat probably won't float yours so I'll give you the good, the bad, and the ugly so that you can make your own decision. Good: For what I paid ($650) the internals were an absolute steal.

Good Ultrabook, but Wifi Sucks....

Sebastian B., Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Using an ultrabook and windows 8 OS for the first time. The ultrabook is fast. It opens folders, transfer files, and every web page with just a click of seconds. I even upgraded it to Windows 8.1. I'm getting used to this windows 8.1 and it works fine. The only issue right now I'm facing is WIFI. It sucks... I tried all possibilities to get my wifi connected but failed. If anyone can help me with this is highly appreciated.

  • Summary: Ok. Wish it had touch screen. A longer battery life would be nice. Other than that it serves my purpose .

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.

Good for the price

Haishan Xiong, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • 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.

Quality hardware, firmware is iffy

Travis Raines, Amazon
29 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!

Problem with battery

Nargiz, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • 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.

A slightly above average laptop for a good price

E. Hodes, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this laptop about a week ago to replace a rapidly aging 1st generation Macbook Pro. I would have preferred to replace it with a Macbook Air, but the superior performance of excel on windows & my rather small checkbook balance forced me to seek alternatives. Pros i5 processor Backlit Keyboard Ports (HDMI & 2 USB 3.0) Cons Weight - feels heavier than I was expecting Thickness - just as thick as my macbookpro which had an optical drive Battery - last me around 4-5...
