Good Laptop

POSTED BY: RK , Southaven, MS
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

It is a very good laptop. The Windows 8 takes some getting use to. I am working my way through it. Have never been a fan of the mouse pad, so I purchased a track ball. My Last laptop that I purchased was a Toshiba in 1999, so I am having a good time learning to use this one.

I like the computer, as a matter of fact I have 2 of them. What I don't like is the last one I bought has Windows 8 on it. I definitely do not like Windows 8. I like Windows 7 much better. Windows 8 is too hard to maneuver around and all those app blocks a pain in my butt. I will eventually have windows 7 put on it.

Very Good Entry Level Laptop

POSTED BY: Great Price for Starter Laptop
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

This is a very good laptop. It could use a better processor, but for the price who's complaining. This runs most of my 3rd Party Apps with no issues. It is a good "Scratch Pad" laptop for me, for the in-between of work and home. It's pretty much light weight at 15" and other than the casing seemingly feeling like it's all plastic, it is getting the job done. I threw in another 8gb or ram and this thing is good to go. The only throw back is don't expect to do any gaming on this thing, other than that enjoy.

I am very pleased

Very good laptop for the price

POSTED BY: Jorts
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

This laptop is a very good laptop, especially for the price. I was looking for a laptop that could perform basic tasks (which it can) for a reasonable price. I use this laptop for typing papers, surfing the internet, and even a little gaming. It can handle most stuff I do fairly well. The internet is not the best where I am (college) so that certainly plays a factor. The battery life is great. If I need to take it somewhere to type something up, the battery will last at least 2-3 hours minimum. The only problem I have with it is Windows 8, which is a little hard to use at first. Also, there are shortcuts on the touchpad which can get irritating. For instance, if you swipe your hand from the far left of the touchpad onto the center, it will open a new application (store, photos, etc). This can get quite annoying because it happens fairly often. There are ways that you can disable this (by downloading a program off the internet) but I was too wary to try it. Overall a very nice lightweight laptop that I would recommend to a friend, especially if he/she was looking for something fairly inexpensive.

To tell you the truth, I really dislike Windows 8. Plain and simple. It is VERY confusing, and with someone with little knowledge of computers, it all but irritates me when I get on, I wish I could have my old Windows XP or 7, at least I knew what I was getting with that, Otherwise this is a wonderful computer. I have no issues with the overall performance and others. Thank you for your time.

I was kind of afraid to buy this one because it looked pretty big and I was looking for a smaller sized laptop. But I've come to love this laptop because I like how it runs, and I have the 'Start' place, and 'Desktop' place, and I do have some problems with it now and then, but overall it's a very good laptop I don't regret getting. I'm just not sure about the Norton Security, where it says that in whatever day's I have left the product (my laptop) will no longer function..? I'm hoping it's not what I think it is.

This is a solid, budget-conscious laptop. Performance is more than enough for productivity applications and video streaming. This is obviously not a gaming laptop,, but it performs acceptably with many less demanding titles, even recent releases, provided you are willing to compromise on your graphics settings. I highly recommend this for school or business purposes, or as a secondary PC for someone that already has a solid desktop and needs the mobility.

This is the second Satellite I've owned. The first was a 2007 A385 model. It lasted five years through two owners. I'd really like this one a lot more if it weren't for that abomination, Windows 8. It takes a perfectly good machine and turns it into pure garbage from a usability standpoint. You absolutely MUST have a mouse to use this or it wastes about 3/4 of your time trying to undo all the mistakes that 8 interprets touch pad gestures incorrectly as. As with my first Satellite, it didn't come with enough RAM out of the box, but I've come to expect that from PC manufacturers. I've "bumped it up" to 8GB and everything I use runs nicely now.

POSTED BY: MBSS , Dallas, TX
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I am a huge Toshiba Satellite fan, but this particular laptop might prove problematic for the brand. I needed a backup with enough battery life to get me over the Atlantic, and this one didn't make it. I bought this model, only to find on initial start-up that the touchpad did not work. I was forced to return the laptop just 15 minutes before store closing and only hours before needing to catch a flight. I tested a replacement, before leaving the store. It seems too that one has to buy a long-life battery (not included) for more than 4-5 hours, and without being plugged in, the eco-level leaves a very dark screen which does not adjust well. The case is a bit flimsy, but for the price, the laptop is better than a back-up HD and has reasonable speed. Windows 8 takes some getting used to, and shut down is an extra step. All this said, the AMD performance is adequate for my travel needs, so I can say that for the price, this is a good travel companion if one needs a full key board and large screen from which to work.

We have only owned Toshiba Laptops and this purchase made it our FIFTH one. I caught the reasonable price online - bought it. What a dissapointment as it has no offers for Word products, no adobe, no java - nothing but Norton which we don't use. It does not permit user friendly people to do what they want as the past. I cannot stand the password on start-up. Don't like windows8 start menu and have absolutely NO use for APPS and they come standard. This Toshiba says DO WHAT I WANT - not what you'd like to do. It's a shame as Toshiba used to be the best.

until now my notebooks have always been Compaqs. I decided to try something else, I'm still making adjustments & discoveries. Windows 8 takes some getting use to. My Toshiba notebook & Windows 8, is still new to me and it is too early to tell how much I am going to like them down the road. The notebook itself is very nice, the software I'm still undecided on. Some of the new features are really cool, some I am not so sure if I like them. It's field test is only a couple of months old, but the longer I use my Toshiba notebook, the better I can tell if the change from Compaq to Toshiba was worth while.

This computer is horrid. I should take it back but I guess I'm stuck with it now. Windows 8 is the worst software ever. The font changes constantly while you are trying to move the mouse. The aps come in from the bottom, sides and top when they want to. The mouse cursor gets hung up and there is NO office software whatsoever. Computer may be ok but software makes it VERY difficult to use!

Good price on this laptop, but I'm not sure it's worth the frustration of Windows 8 and the intermittent mousepad. It also begs bogged down when more than one program is running.

Computer can't run Windows 8

POSTED BY: swtridemsu , Birmingham, AL

I bought this laptop a month ago and have had trouble since day one with the speed. It is very very slow and can't run Windows 8. When surfing the internet it is choppy and can't keep up as you scroll up and down. I owned the previous version of this laptop with Windows 7 and it was one of the best laptops I have had other than the speakers. The laptop itself is good, they have upgraded the speakers and you can actually hear thing now. The construction is about the same as my last one. The speed is about to make me throw it against a wall! If i wasn't one day over my return date i would have already returned and got something with a faster processor so it didn't feel like i have a computer from the 80s!

not too happy

First off, avoid any PC that has Windows 8 like the plague!! I can't convey in words how pathetically organized that operating system is. Is has no business being on a laptop/desktop. As for the computer, the key layout is a little inconvenient for me, but maybe all Toshibas are like that. First one I've had so it's taking lots of getting used to. I expected much faster performance too. But by far the worst part -- Win 8. It's the worst piece of software I've had to deal with to-date.

it's a pretty decent laptop, i personally love toshiba, my main problem is the price. for the price i paid i don't feel i received a great value. the graphics card is not even comparable to the one in my previous laptop that is 4 years old.

Not very user friendly

I don't really enjoy using this computer and probably should have had the husband return it. I don't find it user friendly. The side bars that pop out so that you can access the tablet like features, pop out randomly and it's very irritating. The user is supposed to move the cursor intro the upper right corner to access this but I find it happens often. The middle of the mouse pad does nothing and sometimes the screen will go to a tablet or app page (?) totally unexpectedly with no quick way to go back to the page you were on. Always frustrated with this computer.

We purchased a Toshiba a couple of years ago and loved it. We went to buy another one on 6/8/13 and had major problems so we returned it and they gave us a new one which we got on 6/29/13 which we had to return on 7/1/13. At that time we felt we had so many problems that we purchased another brand. Really hated to do it but having 2 faulty computers in less than a month we were afraid to stay with Toshiba.

This is the worst computer I have ever bought. It hangs up, closes out applications, flashes error all the time. I do not like this computer. I am not sure if it is the computer itself or the way it was loaded.

Don't buy

This is my second Toshiba. My first Toshiba is 10 years old. It is still running. I gave it to the grandkids because my husband cracked the screen. It was a great computer. I have had two others. When I saw the add for this computer I thought it was a great deal. I purchased it as a second laptop. I also told my daughter about it and she got one also. I am very disappointed with the speed on this computer and so is my daughter. I did a little research and found out there is not much I can do to update it to run faster. If you have a lot of patience then buy it otherwise forget it.

The battery life did not last more than 45 min. Screen would blackout and would have to restart. I lost a term paper because of this! I own a Toshiba tv that is great. I returned this computer.

Maybe it's me but I can't get used to having to search for stuff from the right side of my screen. I'm right handed and Don't like the way you have to scroll Down the apps or icons to get to something. I wind up making several attempts to get somewhere..because of being redirecteD. I hope this makes sense

I wouldn't recommend buying this computer unless you absolutely must. I mean it is inexpensive, but it definitely runs horribly. It's really really ridiculously slow.

Baffled

POSTED BY: Jelvis , Riverside CA
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

Why you abandoned the previous Toshiba version for this one baffles me. It took me a week to figure out the simple stuff such as navigating through photos and music. Underlying screens are always popping up when you don't want them and then are hard to change without more of the same. This version was ruined by an attempt to be novel. The apps on this version are stripped as well. You offer no games anymore and everything must be purchased as extra. The old adage: "If it ain't broke don't fix it." applies here.

I purchased this computer for office work, it is the worst computer I have ever bought. I have several Toshiba laptops and am very please with them, but NOT this one. Two days after we had it the blue screen and crashing started. My employee could not get any work done. I contacted the seller and they told me to revert to factory settings, that helped for 1 week and then the crashing started again. I don't think I will purchase another Toshiba.

we love(d) our Toshiba, it looked great and was a great buy. But it has Windows 8, which is a frikkin nightmare. Sorry, but after 2 weeks we returned it for a refund. And we went out and bought a refurbished laptop with W!indows 7. Doesn't matter how good the hardware is if the software stinks
