Great laptop for a great price. Only downside is getting used to Windows 8 and all of the preloaded apps.

fast and full featured

this machine is fast and has an excellent display. I opted for a SSD drive and now its even faster. The only knock I have is the full keyboard (includes the 10 keypad) takes some getting used to. The machine comes with windows 8 which is annoying in itself but the touchpad makes to easy to accidently move to windows metro screen. Fortunately you can change settings to limit this travel. I do love the lighted keyboard! I'm happy so far.

Great laptop.

As an IT repair technician I look for particular features in any system. I am not as interested in the software which comes with the machine, other than the system utilities (which are excellent with this Toshiba) as I am in the performance and stability of the unit. This system meets, and surpasses, my best requirements. The Core i7 processor and 12GB RAM make it a powerhouse which can easily handle the 4 or 5 windows I have open at any given time. Boot time is particularly effective, as is the shutdown. I am similarly impressed with the sleep and charge USB mode for my iPod Touch and several other devices. I work on 4 to 5 computers a day and I am impressed with this model. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who demands high performance and stability. The unit has never once crashed, despite the heavy work load I submit it to. Windows 8.1 works extremely fast on this machine and I can switch between legacy "Programs" and newer Windows 8 "Apps" with ease and speed. Well done Toshiba !!!

I needed to upgrade to Windows 8. A lap top was recommended by my son. He specified a different brand. Toshiba was easier to find in this area.

Great 7.+ to 8.1 experience.

Something you HAVE to do, sooner or later. Better sooner!

I am very impressed with this computer. It meets my needs and was sold at a good price. My nephew is off to college this fall and I will consider a Toshiba for him.

The features this pc offers are excellent. The raised backlit keyboard is great and the touch screen is perfect. I use the touch alot and because I am very tactile it comes in handy as my hands are always on my monitor anyway. The speed of movement with the touch screen is very quick and gets you around very fast with little effort. Using Win 8 is a challenge and when you use the tutorial it becomes easier to use. You wont be sorry if you buy a touch screen if you are tactile. The backlit is great and you can use it in the dark and still do what you need. I recommend it highly.

Good for some things
