Summary: This computer is extremely powerful. The only thing I hear people say bad about it, is "it's ugly." For buyers: This product works great with Windows 8.1 pro- My start up time is 7 seconds with i5 processor. All apps work great with the touch screen: Such as Flappy Bird, Minion Rush. The touch pen(stylus) isn't necessary for this device. There isn't multi-touch on the touch screen so you can't pinch the screen zoom.
Summary: While it is stocky, it is lightweight laptop, it seems to be fast, boots up fast, works fine, it does have some issues with the Tablet functionality, namely that it is really hard to rotate the screen from laptop mode to tablet mode.
Summary: well I bought this laptop and I'm really surprise for a good product, good price, excellent condition of the item and a delivery on time. The only problem I have is the fan noise. Anyway, I'd recommend this laptop if you are looking for a decent laptop with a reasonable price.
Summary: Running Linux this machine is excellent. Fast boot time, responsive, works well. Running Windows 7 64-bit was horrible. The network card would shutdown every few minutes for no reason. It would take several tries to get it enabled again. Since the machine worked so well in Linux, I just kept running Fedora 18.
Toshiba Portege M780-10V: Tablet PCs are great, but this one is mediocre
25 September 2012
Summary: The build is not particularly good, after a year of (admittedly constant) use, there are obvious signs of wear. Anywhere my hands tend to rest has marks from the surface paint being rubbed off. The battery barely lasts 1.5 hours after a year and that is despite being plugged in the vast majority of the time it was in use. Having said this, the machine is not falling apart so I will not rate the quality as poor, its just not as good as some of it's competitors.
Cons: Build quality poor-ish, poor support for 64bit
