I love my new laptop. It has everything I need, great speed, wonderful wide screen and large key board buttons that makes spending long hours on the laptop easier. The price was an even better deal. I love it so much I am thinking of buying one for my daughter for Christmas!

Very Good Product

I have had this laptop for a little over a month and I am very impressed. This computer is fast, with plenty of RAM and Storage for all of my needs. I have 2 small minor complaints; 1 the trackpad isn't as good as some of the other machines I looked at and 2 this laptop really shows up fingerprints.

Outstanding Laptop

I've had the S5990 for 1 month. Very technically sound machine - fast and excellent Wi-FI connectivity. I am very happy with this laptop, was going to get an HP but this machine has way more bang for the buck.

Great laptop!

I bought this laptop mid-October, 2009. My only complaint is the speaker volume isn't very loud. I have been able to upload Office 2007, and it took next to no time and works great with Windows 7. The internet connection is SO quick and easy. Tons of storage space on the laptop itself, is compatible with the WD external harddrives...great for student, great for travel (not all that heavy compared to older laptops that I have had to travel with), webcam and microphone work great, works well with Skype.

It's perfect!!

We like the computer very much, works well, and does what I need. Problem is with astetics (looks). The finished is so smooth that finger prints are a problem, makes it look dirty. Reccommend a mate type finish for future products. Also Micrsoft asks for a key when accessing micrsoft work. I received weekly information from work in the old Excel format. If I could have a key number would be nice. Or ;least know how to obtain one.

Nice Machine UNLESS you live in a very rural area with no broadband available (due to forest area) There is NO Dial Up Modem in this machine, therefore, if you live in an area where all you can have is dial up, you're stuck, unless you can find some way to hook up an External Modem.

very good Choice

Overall this Laptop contains all the features which are useful to me. It's easy to navigate through the features. I was interested in using it more-so for my photography..I found that it's easy to upload pictures but does not contain a program in which I can edit them..

Toshiba was recommended after taking back my Gateway I got for x-mas. I have enjoyed it very much. It has everything I need on a computer. So far I have not had any problems and do not anticipate any.

Great laptop!

I am a college student and I purchased my (first) TOSHIBA laptop about a month ago. Apart from it's sleek design, it's very functional and it works great for me. I love that the keyboard comes with the number pad, and the interior is all black. The battery life is good (thus far) for the most I get 3 hrs when it's not charging. The only downsides are; the speakers aren't that loud, and the fingerprints marks - but that's minor. Overall, it works well for me & I absolutely love it.

A great media center laptop

The Toshiba Satellite L505-S5990 is a great product. It's sleek design will get your attention and its dual core processing will keep you hooked. Easy Wi-FI connection is included and the screen is nice and large, for watching a movie without straining. A 200+GB hard drive will keep you from running out of space anytime soon and with Windows 7 as the OS, you'll be up to date in the ever-changing computer world. My only gripe is only having two USB ports.

Very pleased overall, with the exception of the speakers, and, the location of the ubs slots. If you use a wired mouse and a broadband card, they are to close.

Great value

It works acceptably for everything I wish to do at this time - I am a first time owner of a laptop so I am still learning the variables.

Great value but poor speakers

Nice size screen. I especially like the tactile feel of the touch pad, the grooves allow greater precision when moving the cursor, compared to conventional touch pads. Only con is the Speakers, way too low volume, you will definitely need to purchase external speakers.

The 10 key is great.

POSTED BY: Milehighboater , Denver Colorado

I write many papers requiring the input of many numbers. I used a standard keyboard on past laptops for years, the 10 key makes input much faster. The design is user friendly and functional. The full size keyboard makes long papers much easier to write. This is the only laptop I have owned I am comfortable replacing my desktop with.

Very fast, can't beat the price for this entry level laptop. my only complaints are the weight, and the speakers. my 8 year old laptop has better speakers than this one.

This is a good value for money type laptop for basic home usage. The only disapointment is very low sound level of speakers, no phone modem, no bluetooth, no infrared and 32 bit windows-7 instead of 64 bt.

First, I did not realize that the finish would retain fingerprints as it does. Next, it has been very slow in loading, I specifically went to a 3gb & 320gb because I thought it would load quickly. I have been very limited in the number of programs that I can have uploaded at one time. Usually I work in and out of 4 screens at once. With this Toshiba I am forced to close down programs and re-up in order to get it to work. I must admit I am not a technoid so that I must learn as I go, however, this Toshiba product does not allow me to do even those things that I have been doing on a regular basis on other computers. I am disgusted.
