Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

Replaced 8 y/o desktop, because of XP demise looked at laptops because of space I had available, repair person said TOSHIBA was a good, reliable brand, (just bought 2 Toshiba TV's) decided what I actually needed, looked at several, found this one, called customer service a few times regarding features, now I LOVE IT.

This is my second Toshiba laptop. Only complaint about the first was the battery life. This one one has twice the batter life and am loving it. Have used on battery for over 2 hrs and it still says 1/2 full. Would recommend to anyone!!

So far so good

Still converting brain from Vista/HP to Windows8/Toshiba

Very nice laptop!

The laptop is really nice quality. It runs quiet, easy to use, and navigate. The mouse is a little sensitive when dragging fast , causing you to back log to your most recent page which is annoying. Other than that is great. Battery last quite long too!

works great!

Going to have to get used to windows 8, but other than that toshiba is the BEST.

Great Laptop!

The speed of the processor makes it great to use for both fun and business as does the fact that the keys click giving the feedback that I need as a touch-typist. Also, the battery lasts forever unless I'm playing games which use more power. The value we received for the price was fantastic! Only downside was the extra trial software loaded on the machine.

Replacement Lap Top

POSTED BY: Mr Snowball , Buffalo NY
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I am a Senior Citizen, 75 Years Old, whose one activity is working on the Computer. February 4,2014 my lap top was stolen. I found myself without anything to do so my son bought me a Toshiba Lap Top to replace the stolen one. I was not happy with Windows 8 and had it replaced with Windows 7. I am very happy with my new Lap Top. While I know that the Buffalo NY Police will never recover my old computer and what I had on there is gone forever but it will be fun using the new computer and trying to remember what I had on the Old Computer.

Would prefer that a Microsoft program were installed instead of a trial version. Seems to me that paying enough for the computer, that could and should be provided!

Poor registration process

My wife's HP registered automatically. The Toshiba process was difficult to understand.

Good except the arrow sticks from time to time

I'm still getting use to the keyboard. Sometimes when I hit the letter nothing happens and the arrow sticks and I have to wait for it. Outside of that I like the laptop.

This is the second Toshiba Laptop that I have owned, I am happy with the decision to purchase this product. Seems to be user friendly and does all that I personally need from a laptop.

The biggest problem is windows 8.1 I would not recommend it to anyone. If I had to have it I should have gotten a touch screen. Also the laptop has some sharp edges on it.

side bar pop in drives me crazy

POSTED BY: Reddpups , Lehigh Valley PA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I'm really not to sure how I feel about this computer. The side bar constantly makes an unwanted entrance, & when I want it I can't get it to pop. While typing the 'zoom' constantly changes, smaller, larger, don't know why it does that either. I also had difficulty uploading pictures, with my old computer, I inserted the disc, & pics were uploaded, not so with this computer.

Good instructions; fast response time

Laptop is fine. Win8 is a loser.

POSTED BY: RJR , Itasaca, IL
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Laptop is fine. Nothing exceptional. Purchased because my old Toshiba lasted a long time with no problems. Win8.1 is a pain. Cannot perform a drive image, spend time trying to resolve other issues with software. Should not be. Should buy and use without fiddling around with software, etc.

First Disappointment

POSTED BY: Builder , South Carolina
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

We have used Toshibas for years in my business. They have always performed well. The most recent one was for me. It works well most of the time. Then it will start restarting for no reason. If I walk away from my desk for a few minutes, it goes into sleep mode. Then it goes into a restart error once I return. Wish I had gone another direction.

NOT HAPPY!

I have always had an HP but thought I would try a Toshiba....Bad idea! Will never have another one! Didn't come with any programs, keyboard is not good, keys are harder to hit. Just don't care for it compared to an HP
