I have chosen “Extremely Likely” because I have been very happy with my new Toshiba laptop computer. I would highly recommend purchasing one to anyone who is looking towards the future and entering into the next generation of computers. My new computer is easy to use, and I am looking forward to many more weeks and years of service from this fantastic computing machine.

This is my first time owning a lap top computer and I must say the experience has been amazing. the Toshiba feels good and sturdy when you work on it and yet it is light weight. I love the way the keyboard feels as I type and the screen lets me see all of the details on a page. Good machine for a bargain price, I love it

This was a really great buy. It works well with all the programs I have to use in college. I would prefer this laptop to anyone 1: because of the great price, and 2: because of the life of the battery. On power save mode I can get up to 3.8 hours out of it. That's perfect for me escpically on plane trips

Upon opening my laptop I found a nice looking system easy functioning keys with system functions. Manuevering around the desktop was easy. The flaw that I found is a Microsoft issue with the screensaver becoming inoperative after logging into a wireless network. To date I have not found any work around solution for this problem. As an end user and a Tech Savvy user I would prefer to have the availability of a password when leaving my system unattended. Other than this flaw I find that the system is very easy to operate, the sound system is wonderful for the size. I recommend this laptop for average to above average users. High Tech users may find the screensaver problem and annoyance.

This computer was the best price I could find in its class. It works great and runs cool. It is faster than I expected, much faster than my wife's similarly configured HP laptop. I might even decide I like Vista! I have had this computer for one month and I am very happy so far. One reason I picked Toshiba was for the excellent display.

My daughter Just Loves her Laptop, even though within the first day of use on Her 13th Birthday the touchpad quite working. We gotten her a mouse. So all is well. NOW she is the happiest Teen in the WORLD. She is a Sims person. She can run any of them games on her system & go anywhere with her laptop. The only glitch now is that when she reboots the keyboard doesnt work. So after rebooting she closes the lid & when she reopens the lid to the laptop the keyboard works. Strange but true. Crazy ... At least my darught is happy & so thrilled with her laptop. She is able to play her music go online & play her games chat with her firends & so forth & That makes me happy.

I bought this Toshiba partly due to the ratings in Consumer Reports, and partly due to family member who has an old one that has performed very well. They also have new Toshiba's that are doing great for them. So far I have not used it a whole lot, but what I have has been very nice. I like the speed of it and the weight. It is a fraction of what my old laptop was and much faster. Even though I am having to learn a new operating system, it has gone very smoothly. I look forward to many years of service from this machine.

Great Computer. Suggestion: Place power cord and external monitor attachment at the rear of the computer. This will allow better (easier) connections, and less trouble when moving or detaching the computer. The USB port on the right side is OK, but if in the rear would causle less difficulty with the mouse.

POSTED BY: FA , San Diego, CA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Required to have Vista which is a poor system. Too confusing in layout with no logical pattern. Also, Vista is not compatible with compuserve and aol servers and there are no patches available. The placement of power cord, USB and other connections are poorly placed. Most should be in the back of the computer, the the sides. The boardband card is not compatible with a full card - required getting a new board band card when this computer should have been able to accept the standard cards currently used. Battery does not hold charge very long. Much less than as indicated in the instructions.

I'm a small business owner, and a writer. I type approx. 100 wpm, with an error count of less than 2%. Either the keyboard can't keep up with me or it's far too sensitive. Problems include constant and unexpected scrolling, unexpected switching windows, toolbars activated without request, etc. For this frustrating reason alone, I will probably not purchase another Toshiba.

For the price, you can't beat it....great memory, great speed, great space!!

I have had my Toshiba Laptop for about a couple of months now and I love it. It has great features and the batter life is amazing. However, the only issues I have is with the operating system. Windows Vista in my book is ok. Actually mine is in the shop right now due to a Windows Boot Error. If they could find a way to minimize that error and also make sure a recovery disk comes with the laptop, everything would be golden.

Well, when I first got it, I just thought it was very slick, it looks so nice, its not to thick just good enough & its not too heavy. The graphics are great, works amazing & fast. I LOVE the webcam with the built in mic, the special media keys above the keyboard & that it supports Skype voice and video calling. Also, very up to date & great customer support available at all times.

A Great Buy!!

This is the 3rd laptop for my wife and I. We just retired a 4year old Compaq that was failing more frequently. My wife bought a 14" HP that she loves because it is small and light. I bought this because I wasn't concerned about size and didn't want to spend $700. This is on the same performance level as the more expensive HP although less memory and a slower processor. You would never know it. My only fault so far after not quite one month of use is that I would like to see the speaker mute key lighted and the right/left mouse click keys a slightly different color so I can see them in poor light. Other than that, this is an extremely fast and responsive laptop that was surfing the net in less than 10 minutes out of the box.

I like it!

I had never used a lap top before and in general it's easy. I am still learning, but have had very few difficulties.

Overall it's an excellent computer. But there is a problem with the wireless Internet connection (I have two Wi-Fi networks in my house). Once in a while I get a message saying that Windows does not find any wireless connections, but my desk computer always recognizes them (I tried this with my Toshiba alongside my desk computer). Is this a common problem? Can you suggest a remedy? Many thanks, Roibeard

Quite Satisfied With What I Got!

I am almost completely happy with this computer. I have found very few problems, and the ones I have found I am confident can be easily remedied by competent computer professionals. The primary problem I have encountered is that the mousepad seems rather finicky: sometimes, without my finger even moving, the mouse on the screen will move all over the screen; other times, it won't respond very well to where my finger is moving. Other than that, I really have no complaints!

Love the feel of the keys under my fingers, bright picture and great clear sound from the speakers. The webcam carries a wonderful picture. For a newbie I find the toshiba easy to navigate.

Using this computer as a backup computer and for travel. Recently had a situation where I needed access to my bank when I was in a area where my bank did not have a local branch. Also, my desktop is in the shop with several problems and this is one way to mantain on line status.

Very nice machine. Great screen, somewhat fussy pointing device. Glossy finish shows fingerprints - would be better w/matte finish.

Good laptop

POSTED BY: sd
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This is a pretty good laptop. It does everything I need it to and it does so relatively quickly. I only have one complaint - the design of the mousepad and clickers is awful. There is little in the design to keep the user on track - the touch pad and the clickers are the same color and at the same level as the rest of the platform. There is a slight texture change on the pad and of course the clickers are pressable, but when you're staring at the screen for a while it's easy to get "lost" and click the wrong button. A little more design dollars here it this would be fixed.

Real Nice Laptop!

The laptop works very well in all aspects. We have 2 of them in our household. I don't think they are real workhorses (like for college, or business). I have not found any real issues except for all the junk they install on the laptop when you buy it (Worthless). I also must take issue with the power cord that is inserted into the computer to recharge the battery. The connectors on the MB break very easily and you have to be very careful with them. I would hope in the future that they would adapt something like the apple connection (MacBook) which work very well.

Volume too low

POSTED BY: Cats , Louisville, KY
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I like everything about this laptop except for the factory preset low volume.. at the 100% setting, it is way too low (and I have normal hearing). There is nothing that can be done to make it louder except to purchase speakers, which is what I did. Of course the speakers require current and a table top, so then the laptop becomes a desktop which sort of defeats the purpose of having a laptop. Had I known about the volume issue before purchase, I would not have chosen this one.

Mouse pad does not work worth beans. I hate Vista. Often can not print certain things. Need to get the old Toshiba fired up to do the print job. It is fast and with wireless mouse works fine other than all the Vista problems.
