works great. My only complaint is that my email opens automatically. I want to be able to go get a cup of tea without having to shut down my computer or worrying that my housemate will see my emails.

Extremely nice for the price!

Was looking for another laptop as the one I had was dying a slow death. I did a lot of research and found this Toshiba Model was the best bang for my buck. It has all the features I need. Very easy to setup and get working again.

I bought this to replace an older Toshiba that was just to slow to run newer software. The compact size and superb battery life make this notebook great for travel. It is exceptionally fast and was a great deal for the price.

Love It!

Took a while to catch on to Microsoft 8. Having a Windows phone did help. Knowing about APPS and how they work. Made using Laptop a lot easier.

Good Product

POSTED BY: Jane , St. George, Utah
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

lightweight, easy to use, and so far very reliable. No problems with speed, screen resolution, or battery life like I've had with other brands. My only criticism is the keyboard....some of the keys have always been significantly less responsive than others. It makes typing more of a challenge than necessary.

I bought this as a replacement for a Toshiba which I dropped. As far as I can tell after 5 weeks it works as well as the original, which an IT friend helped me choose. So I bought another based on my original.. Have no opinion on battery life.

POSTED BY: Uncreative Name , WI

Tha laptop is great, but it has an extremely deficient sound system. Even on the highest volume, I can barely hear anything. Disabling the add-ons somewhat remedied the issue.

I bought this laptop so I would have something lightweight to transport to customer homes for demonstrations for our home based business. It is great except for the sound and the cd/dvd drive is very noisy and sound is not real good. Otherwise, love the laptop.

POSTED BY: SudzL , Eau Claire, WI
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Affordable, good battery life & quick to boot up. For the most part I'm pretty happy with it. Just a few minor things I would change such as the textured pad for moving the curser. I prefer a smooth pad. Also, when typing on it I really have to push hard on the keys; otherwise, I miss letters, which slows me down.

Great value laptop !

POSTED BY: tech savvy , Homer, ny
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I like the laptop. It performs well, but the operating system is limited on customization as far as turning features on and off. You have no access to what I would consider a basic function of being able to edit Local user groups. You are forced to upgrade to the Pro version of 8.1,or at least I have not as of yet been able to find a patch to correct this short coming.

This is my second Toshiba and the quality is way less then my first one. The screen is such that it is hard to see anything on it even after I adjusted the brightness and contrast. The "charms" that are suppose to slide out from the right most of the time will not. Bought another Toshiba laptop believing I would get the same quality as my first one. Boy was I ever wrong.

Some of the apps loaded on the machine were not useful to me. The supposed free trial of office was unusable. Even after trying several times to get help from Microsoft, I could not sign in to use it. Therefore, I don' t know if it would be worthwhile purchasing it.

Bought this to work as a net access/word processor till I can afford a Mac again. The built in Toshiba software made the sound horrible and the speakers are ultra tiny. The viewing angle on the screen is tight and the backlight doesn't fill the entire screen. Those are the cons which everybody focuses on. Otherwise, for the cost it does what I bought it to do.

Hate windows 8

POSTED BY: dave
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

First of all, my overall rating and features evaluation is low only because of windows 8. I did say I would recommend this product because I like Toshiba and once again not windows 8. Windows 8 may be a good OS for touch screen but other than that I think it has problems that I run into many times during the day that annoy me. I have owned several Toshiba laptops and have been happy with them. This laptop is the same except I don't like windows 8 at all. For the price I think this is an excellent machine. For what I do, which is basically surfing the net and using Microsoft word and that sort, it does just fine. You get what you pay for. Don't expect this machine to be a speed daemon or play video games as well as other because it may not. Taking care of any computer is very important like keeping it clean and defragmented and keeping it safe from viruses.

It is a nice laptop for a beginner or for someone who just wants to surf the web, send emails and do some homework on. It even works for online gaming for the most part and for picture editing. But if your looking for something to stream movies on, then this isn't you cup of tea. The speakers are bad and video streaming is murky.

keyboard is not very sensitive, especially the A Z S area of the board. Ok for the money but frustrating to type on. Would not recommend to anyone. My daughter bought one and has to return it due to keyboard problems. Needs to be sent back no local repair, no loaner. Cheap is probably a good word. poor quality perhaps fit as well

Having owned another Toshisa computer for 6 years and being more than pleased with it, I decided to purchase a new one. All I can say is that the quality is not good at all and I have been more than disappointed. I have had trouble from day one. Sometimes, e-mail doesn't work. I have trouble with the display driver almost daily. The computer will just need to shut down and restart in the middle of my working. The keys have to be hit just right for the letters to print on the screen. I know the computer I bought isn't the most expensive, but it is suppose to be even better than the one I was using for 6 years and NEVER had a problem with until I ran out of RAM. I am considering just purchasing another computer by a different company soon. SUCH A LET DOWN FROM TOSHIBA!

awkward dark invisible nontactile keyboard

POSTED BY: Blue Heeler
Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

I'm a writer. Keyboard dark and flat. Requires lighting it up to see it. Too many apps to get through to get to Microsoft word. Apps interfere with running Microsoft word 2010. Unable to shut down all programs before shutting computer down. Does not show which apps are running until shutting it down. Apps result in "circle of death" in 2010 Microsoft word. This computer was a serious mistake I'm stuck with now. Should have purchased Dell with here dimensional keys and bright keyboard.

Overall rating: 2 out of 5 2 out of 5

The laptop it self is ok, but the keyboard is awful. When you are typing some of the keystrokes do not register on the screen, it tends to happen for often on the right side of the keyboard, but is not limited to that side. I even returned the first one I got , thinking it was defective, but the same issue happens with this one as well.

I just got it and the internet search is poor at best. It is already telling me high disk usage. I just got it. It is supposed to have 250 Gb more than my last Toshiba laptop. I liked it but not this one. I also do not use all the bull loaded onto it. Office would have been nice but you didn't give me that.
