I find it hard to believe how easy it was to become familiar with this laptop and all of the features it offers for such a good bargain.

This is my third Toshiba laptop and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I am still learning my way around the new Windows but the touchscreen feature is amazing. This laptop has improved on online learning experience.

I have purchased three Toshiba laptops over the years and all three are still running. The first one has the WINXP OS. They have all been reliable and great quality. This one is no exception. It wasn't top-of-the-line but I doubled the memory immediately which brought performance up a notch. The touch screen is very responsive and is a necessity if using the WIN8.1 side a lot. I uninstalled all programs I wouldn't use and had no problems installing my favorites. I would prefer to have the CAT5 port in the back instead of on the side and someday Toshiba will produce an elbowed power cord connector instead of the present straight connector that is easily broken if snagged while plugged into the socket. Having worked on these for years, I have seen this be a problem many times. It isn't a deal breaker but would be a nice improvement. The sound quality leaves something to be desired so if you listen to music frequently on your laptop, this won't be your choice. I use other sources so this isn't an issue. Overall, I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it for the price.

frst laptop, I love it

This is my first laptop I've owned. I'm retired and disabled. I reviewed almost every laptop on the market, this-by far is the best, (for the money) It makes me feel rich, like I paid well over a thousand or so. It lets me get out of the house, go to a park, write a short story, what ever. Thank you, Jerome Allen, the Dogbone,HA!

I have been purchasing the Toshiba brand since the mid 80's. I would not own any other brand. There just like my Toyota, they just are the best...

This is only my second laptop, my first Toshiba. I was able to become acquainted with this Laptop features very quickly although they were somewhat different to my previous one. The operation is very quiet and does not get as warm as my previous. It is fast and the display is very sharp, much sharper than others that I have looked at. It was good value for the money.

This is a good laptop. The sound quality is very poor. I bought some speakers to improve the sound. There were a lot of "junk" programs loaded that I did not want. I finally did a complete system re install and got rid of a lot or programs that I did not want. Did not care for windows 8.2 so I installed a free program called "classicshell" that makes it look like Windows 7 and it was better for me. Touch screen is nice although I only use it occasionally. If you aren't concerned about the sound this is a great computer. The performance is great. The DVD drive takes some getting used to. It is a bit tricky but works fine when you get used to it.

Very nice computer

All around good computer. Speakers sounded 'tinny' at first but I found the equalizer app and now they sound much better. My only real problem is the lack of a light indicating that the drive is working. I've always had one on every computer and laptop I've owned and got very used to it. Otherwise, I'm very happy so far.

My specific c55t shipped with the Intel i3 4000 processor and 4gb of 1600mhz ram. After upgrading to a solid state drive, 8gb ram, and swapping my dvd drive for a platter based storage hard drive this is the most capable computer that I have ever owned. The only thing to watch for is that this laptop only accepts 1600mhz ram so far as I can tell and in my specific laptop, the hard drive that shipped with it seemed to be lacking in performance. It's definitely worth it to upgrade to a solid state drive as I am now getting somewhere near 7 second "cold boot" times.

Very happy

I did not think I would like a computer with Windows 8 but the touch screen has made it easier to navigate. The long battery life has been super.

I really like this Laptop, although I am going to put at least 4 or more Gigs of Ram. I do wish that it had a scrolling function on the keyboard. My Gateway had one and it saved so much time and inconvenience. It is very fast and reliable.

This is the third Toshiba I have had over the years (the other two having been passed down to other family members). It seems like Toshiba laptops keep getting better and better, with steadily decreasing costs! I love the touch screen, and am delighted that the designers have ditched the integrated all-in-one touch pad, and resumed use of a touch pad with two button controls. Graphics and speed are great! I am very impressed with my new laptop!

It does not have the quality like my last Toshiba. And it was a lower end computer. Sound system is on the new laptop is not very good. For a computer is the lastest processor I was expecting a beter, faster computer.

I like it but : 1- the speakers are too weak 2- it is too difficult to work the eject button manually 3- I don't type that fast, but sometimes the keys don't seem to keep up with me. On my last Toshiba, the keys had to be hit hard to register. I do like the durability. They survive many drop tests. Also, it's nice to have a big company to come to if something is wrong and to find parts.

a lot of computer for the money

pros: price, touch screen is great!, fast, fully featured, Win8 is interesting, especially the touch user interface cons: heavy, win8 application do not close properly (they stay in memory, and require Windows taskmaster or a reset to close completely and free up RAM), speakers/sound quality are very weak!, display contrast is not great, screen reflection is terrible. don't care for the touchpad (too small) or mouse buttons.

Nice one!

The battery life is long enough about 3 to 4 hours and charging time about an hour or two at a time. Only if the price was cheaper, including the contract and protection, would be better :)

Very Slow out of the box.

POSTED BY: Watchman , Savannah, GA
Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

I am very disappointing with the speed of this laptop out of the box. There are too many programs pre-loaded that really kill the performance. I removed most of them and it was better for a short time, but it is still much slower than I believe it should be. I spend so much time waiting for things to load that don't want to waste my time with it anymore. Unfortunately, I bought it for my wife and she feels the same way. Toshiba should sell it with minimal programs loaded and provide a disk or links to "recommended" programs that the user can choose to upload. Out of the box the laptop is pretty horrible...
