This has been a very easy computer to operate , I haven't had any freeze ups or slow starts . It has many great features , and for an older person who eirgrew up using a pen and paper it has been a breeze to learn. Well when the children let me use it , two college and one senior level , it is fast enough for their games , movies and music , and even sometimes their homework, I really enjoy it compared to some of the top name brands, it is a great computer with a great price

I have bought 4 Toshiba laptops of the last 5 years. All have performed very well, and reliable products. The price for such a quality product is superior to most on the market.

Great Laptop.

The Toshiba computer is very nice with a large screen, good battery life and lightweight. The only thing I don't like is the Windows 8 programming. I personally think it is hard to navigate from program to program, but I like the computer itself.

I love the computer and the only problem I am having is getting used to Window 8. I will accomplish that and then all will be well.

It is hard to beat this computer for price and processor as well as the ability to upgrade the RAM. I upgraded this laptop to a full 16 Gigabytes of RAM. Performance is excellent. I would recommend this computer to anyone. I would suggest to anyone compare the price plus adding the extra RAM to off the shelf computers with 16 GB RAM

It took me a while to get used to a laptop keyboard as I've never had one before, but as the days go by I'm getting better at it! This is a nice little laptop and quick. Overall I'm quite please with it and would purchase it again.

I am enjoying my new laptop. The only problem is getting used to Windows 8. Have not had any problems with the computer itself.

has a lot of features that make it fast not really a fan of windows 8 but i'm sure that it is because it is so different than other windows programs not a fan of no document applications without purchasing separately but that is not toshiba's fault but microsoft's way of getting more money out of the consumer

Great Laptop...

Overall, I am satisfied with my new laptop. The only complaint I might list is the cheap plastic keyboard.

For the money it's what I expected. Have been having problems with the keyboard, sometimes the key doesn't push down. Will have to contact Toshiba to have this fixed. Will also have to get used to Windows 8 --- but that Is just new technology to learn. This is my 2nd Toshiba, wish the battery lasted a bit longer

so-so laptop

POSTED BY: ivy , north hollywood, ca
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

thats why i bought this laptop because of the brand, toshiba. i need to replace my old laptop. i just need a laptop that is so user friendly, proficient, has strong and longer battery life, fast and has big memory and of course, versatile. except for one, the internet of this laptop sometimes fails. how would i know that? i have two laptops, and an ipod. i am using them simultaneously but this laptop fails to advance with the internet while my ipod is not stopping. so even if its new, it fails. maybe this model lacks something, but its definetly fails sometimes. battery life is 3 hours.

This is my second Toshiba laptop, and I find it easy to use and very reliable. I used my first one to train nurses how to use a large computer program, and actually worked the keys to death.

Keyboard

Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Only thing I want to say is I don't like the keyboard. Seems as though I have to strike really hard on some keys to get the letter or punctuation to show. I had another Toshiba and that was fine. This one feels like a cheaper model.

Battery life is very poor.

POSTED BY: Fryier , Ayer Massachusetts
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

No one could tell how long the battery life was prior to me buying the lap top. Nor did I see anywhere in the on line info of how long the battery life was. I have come to find out the battery life is only apox 2 hours. If I had of known the life was so short I would never have bought this computer.

It is a decent computer for the price, but nothing special. I don't like the keyboard, it is difficult to type without typos.

The general laptop is very good, i really love the size of it. A few things I don't like are one, how shot the battery life is, and two sometimes when using the track pad, it ru makes the sidebar menue pop and that gets kind of annoying.

It is a good laptop. It has the speed that I expect from an AMD cpu. the only problem is not Toshiba fault and that is windows 8 switches from desktop to start page on its own

OK machine

POSTED BY: Ike , eastern Pennsyylvania
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

This is my second Toshiba laptop. It is OK, but: liked first one better! Windows 8 drags the new laptop down. Much harder to get around and touchy to use. As usual though it is a tough machine that can handle my abuse, however at times windows 8 nearly drags me to frustration that could result in a hammered or thrown laptop!

Horrible sound

The speakers are tinny, sound quality is awful. I hate Windows 8!!!!!!!!!!!! The speed seems adequate.

Not sure if its the PC or Windows 8 but I cannot keep WIFI running with out turning off pc and the router. It works once I turn the router back on then the PC but the next day I have to do it all over again. I have 3 other pc on the same router and they work fine. so its the pc or windows 8

Windows 8 is horrible

I have had many Toshiba laptops and this is the worst. Windows 8 is the most user UNFRIENDLY system. Can I blame Toshiba? Don't know, but I am thinking of installing Windows 7.

Wifi problems

POSTED BY: maddie , New York
Overall rating: 1 out of 5 1 out of 5

This computer has some wifi problems. Although I have just bought a new, stronger router and updated my signal to the highest possible and despite all 5 bars in wifi connection icon, it still takes 15-20 minutes to open the page sometimes. very frustrating!!! Restarting it doesn't help either. Don't know where the problems is, but it makes me wanting to throw it down the window. Other features are ok, but this wifi connection problem should be resolved by Toshiba people. And yes, hate Windows 8....do any tech people read these reviews?
