This laptop has lasted all day without plugging it in on wireless (though it was not in constant use) out of the box. I have been able to extend that by using the ECO settings for my battery. The touch screen makes Windows 8.1 very easy to use and I liked Windows XP a lot. I usually run Linux on my systems but I do like this unit with Windows 8 on it. I find it easy to navigate with the touch screen it is like having a tablet with a keboard permenantly attached (in my office that is what I see people doing with thier iPad's) This is great I love it

For the price it's hard to beat! Combination of touchscreen and keyboard using Windows 8.1 is very handy. Computer works great with hardly ever a delay even with several programs running at the same time. Don't know how it would hold up under rough handling as the case is plastic but I haven't had any problems whatsoever. I have it hooked to a USB 3.0 docking station and hooked to the dock functions as a desktop with multiple monitors and printers attached with no issues.

This is the first laptop that I actually went shopping for others that I've had were hand me downs. Last hand me down was a Toshiba Satellite laptop older model but I loved the performance of it. So went for a newer Toshiba and its awesome!

Very good buy

I am very happy with this computer. My only request would be to be able to 'turn off' the touchpad. I am a senior, and much prefer the mouse to the touchpad.

Great laptop for the money. Lots of features and above average performance. The battery life is above average and a pleasant surprise for average use under normal conditions. The touch screen is an added bonus for me.

Good laptop and very fast indeed

I bought one recently it so I cant say much but all the same i think its a good laptop. The touch feature is very fast and responsive. To the user who says the sound quality is poor, I wil advice u to run the DTS app (I mean turn it on) and ur sound quality will improve drastically.

awsome laptop

POSTED BY: sam , Spokane WA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I love the fact that i can do apps as well as programs so its like my phone and a laptop. I dont like the fact that ive owned it 2 weeks and it already had an issue with one of the programs and i had to report a problem to fix it when it wasnt my fault. However it was a quick and easy fix which was nice. I have heard alot of complaints about windows 8 so I waited till i couldnt wait any longer for a new laptop because i WAS HANGING ONTO MY XP. but windows 8 took me 5 min to understand and start zooming through it without useing the how too guid. but it took my spouce 3 days to learn because he had it 1st after i explained it he was good to go because he disnt understand that the app page was basectly the start up window. now hes thinng about getting one too.

Love It

So far I really like this pc. Im having a hard time adjusting to windows 8.1 but overall it's nice. The touchscreen is a great feature but I do still enjoy the regular mouse and keyboard. The battery does pretty well but per usual windows there's some freezing or crashing. It's not noisy, thank God! The keys tend to stick a little. Some times it takes a couple hits to get a letter to come up. For what I spent I couldn't ask for much more!

Great machine, but "Toshiba Start" aggravates me.

POSTED BY: Tony in Houston , Houston, TX
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This really is a great, fast laptop. My only complaint is that the "Toshiba Start" program interferes every time I move the mouse--and there's no way to disable this feature. I'm referring to the menu bar that appears on the right side of the screen every time I move the mouse cursor. This is a very frustrating feature, and I NEVER use it.

Love it's quickness!

My only complaint is that the keyboard is poor to the touch. VERY often I have to go back over a piece to insert letters not typed, even though I know I have hit the key. Otherwise, I love it!!

Very happy with this laptop, was apprehensive going from my desktop to a laptop and I'm very satisfied with this product. Easy to use, and I like the app style home screen.

1 major flaw

POSTED BY: cowboy , St Paul, MN
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This laptop would be perfectly acceptable except for one HUGE flaw. The sound chip functions about as well as a tin can on a string. It literally sounds about that bad. It's tempting to think the speakers or the driver are the issue, but after finding some other reviews, reloading the drivers, and trying an external USB sound device, it's clear the problem is inside the machine and specific to the sound chip. It's actually difficult to listen to any sound output, either from the speakers or the sound jack. It is literally the WORST sound I've ever gotten from any digital device I've ever owned. Otherwise, the performance is fine for web surfing, general tasks, etc. The touch screen works perfectly. Any issues are more related to Windows 8 and its limitations (that it imposes on how you access things). Battery life is good, even better if you use power saver settings. I really want to like the machine and recommend it but the sound issue is too big a hurdle. For an extra $5, why couldn't they put in a functional chip!?

Looking for a solid laptop...look no further..

We used our NEW computer for exactly one day before it quit working. Had to take it for service and found it CAME with malware. Unfortunately malware isn't covered under the warranty. You would think a new computer that comes preloaded with a anti-virus software wouldn't have a virus. After the computer was fixed, we are very pleased.

sound quality when hooked to external speakers has no bass and sounds like a phones sound recorder. thought that was a standard feature. I bought the laptop for music related purposes, now I cant enjoy it

After using the product for sometime i realized one screw was not in place. And I bought the product brand new, out of its box. Also if a provision was made so that the touch screen can be turned off, would have been better because sometimes i wished it could be turned off.

While the fat that the computer is a touch-screen is cool, it gets very annoying when I'm on the internet using the touch-screen and it suddenly switches me to the home screen for no apparent reason. It is also AWFUL to type on and I have to hit the letters several times for it to show up which does not work well for writing papers.

Huge disappointment

POSTED BY: Nykole , Chicago, IL
Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

After reading other reviews, I'm wondering if I got a defective product. This is the first time I have bought a new laptop that was slower than my 4-year old laptop. There is frequently a delay when the computer responds as if it is trying to decide if it is receiving a touch command or a keyboard/mouse command. If I have 2 apps running at once, the machine runs very slow and often freezes. The internet feels very sluggish and runs much faster on a different laptop on the same network. Wishing I had opted for a faster processor rather than a touch screen.

Less than reliable

This is my second Toshiba Laptop. The first one failed about 2 weeks out of warranty. This one failed after 5 weeks. When working they were very nice. I would recomend finding a computer with Win 7 Pro instead of the horrible joke that Microsoft is pushing in Win 8. Got to be worst experiance ever!

Worst piece of equipment ever in 40 years

I have been extremely disappointed with this product. Getting this with windows 8 after using the ease of using windows 7 was beyond frustration. Hours of trying to find what you wanted compared to how it was done is unbelievable. Although I had called to have it sent back, I am by nature not letting this beat me......sooo I am going to PAY someone to show me how to navigate on this horrid thing. I don't think it can be done but here goes.........
