This has been one great laptop. We have been researching laptops for a while and finally decided on this one. I am really glad about our decision. It has a great clear screen, love the backlit keyboard feature, and has a battery life longer than most. We also purchased the extended 3 year accidential warranty with it. That covers everything!! Even the battery. We would recommend this laptop to anyone who has been trying to decide which one to buy.

So far so good! backlight keyboard, sleep and charge usb ports, dvd multi drive with labelflash and the awesome processor and lengthy warranty. Didnt like the way the mouse button sound like and need to press harder, probably why it sounds like that, battery seems loose at times. Overall this is a very good laptop for its price.

This is my third Toshiba laptop. Obviously, this is the best one that I have gotten so far. I admit that the price for this one was more reasonable than the first one I bought 6 years ago, but I won't hold Toshiba responsible for the market price of laptops. An excellent product for a reasonable price, kudos to Toshiba.

From processing speed, memory, and storage to attractive, light weight, and very usable this computer works extremely well. From making presentations to clients with the laptop during the day to studying in the dark at night makes this a versatile assistant. Plenty of battery life to run free of cords. The only draw backs are related to the operating system not being compatible with some programs and some websites.

I had first purchased a Dell but it had a major problem after a month. I took it back and they suggested a Toshiba. I was a little uncertain as I had no experience with Toshiba. But I love it. My husband tells me all the time that if he had known how much I would have used it, he would have bought me one sooner. I would buy another one. I love it. Thanks.

I've had different brand laptops over the years, refreshing about every 3-5 yrs. For this one, after narrowing down size and features, the factors that gave it the edge were attractive physical design, light weight, backlit keyboard, and a pre-loaded 15 month anti-virus subscription. Toshiba was also a longstanding brand I hadn't yet tried. Out-of-box experience was flawless, and I was up and running smoothly. After a month of use, the unexpected plus has been battery life - significantly better than anything I've had before, and a very crisp display.

This latop has all the features I need for day-to-day task. It is a functional size and has plenty of memory to do photo editing and basic video editing. It has great battery life and the backlit keyboard is a plus. Basically there is nothing that I don't like about. (BTW a friend uses one of my old Toshiba laptops that is 9 years old and even though it is outdated it still works perfectly.)

This is my third Toshiba laptop. No doubt they are the best. I was looked everywhere and this laptop by far was the best deal. It is super light and the battery life is just terrific. The lighted keyboard is very useful at night or when in class. Graet buil in camare and mic. I love this laptop and toshibas. They only flaw is the mouse. It is very loud; however, a wireless mouse will solve this issue. Highly recommend buying this computer you will not be disappointed. I forgot to mention the two year warranty (included)!

I got all that in this model, and the nice to have features (like the light up keyboard) really make a difference. For the price, this was a great value, and I would definitely reccommend it.

I had a lot I was looking for when shopping around for laptops, and I was pleased to find Toshiba had created something that gave me all that I wanted. Performance and sleekness were my top priorities. There are plenty of good computers out there, but so many of them look like cheap toys. This is the only computer I found that can hold up to the Mac, but it is far cheaper.

POSTED BY: Older-one , Charleston, WV
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

This is the first Toshiba I have owned and/or used. The laptop has a much longer battery life than previous laptops I have owned (3 1/2 to 4 hrs), and is much lighter. I use it on a daily basis for both home and work use. It has thus far been great! The laptop was up and running within minutes of unpacking from the box. The backlighted keyboard is teriffic for "older eyes" (but I had to google to find out how to activate). To activate keyboard backlight, press the FN and Z keys. The left click is a little louder than usual, but nothing you can't get use to, or just use a mouse. I have not had to contact tech or customer support, but that was a deciding factor in choosing Toshiba over competitors.

This keyboard is the best laptop keyboard I've used. The keys are evenly lit. People who complain about the surrounding keys dipping down a bit when one key is hit must be typing wayy to hard.

I just retired my old Toshiba Satellite which gave me six years of hassle-free performance, and I am looking forward to another long association with this new one. I absolutely love the backlit keyboard and I don't understand why it isn't a standard feature on every laptop these days. The keyboard and function keys are very easy to use and I appreciate that it is lighter than my old one.

I was so very pleased and surprised to see Toshiba come out with a laptop of this caliber. Historically, I purchase Vaio for the look and feel and the features. However, this time around, I looked beyond my norm and was surprised by this model. I have friends who have purchased Toshiba laptops in the past and have not been too impressed with the laptops overall (large, clunky, heavy and ugly). The E105 meets my aesthetic requirement while packing professional features.

Overall this is a very good computer. Performance is good. There are two areas that need improvement. Sound and Heat. I had a Toshiba Satellite A25 and the sound ran circles around this. The sound set at the highest level is difficult to hear and would rate a 3 at best. The heat is another area that needs attention. It would not stop me from making the purchase. I did buy this one without checking out the speakers. My mistake.

I use it mostly for office-type applications, not multimedia stuff. For me, it's great. The laptop is good-looking, light, fast and functional. Some gripes however: (1) there seems to be a manufacturing issue with the strip of metal covering the front edge (i.e., where the headphone jack is located) which was warped in the first unit I got and still a bit uneven in the second one which I kept; and (2) the mousepad is too wide.

If you are looking for a gaming laptop then you should look elsewhere. But for everything else, this laptop will get the job done easily. I only have a few complaints. First, the material feels a little cheap and not well put together. The speakers are so bad that I don't understand the purpose of its existence. It also gets a little warm after 30 minutes or so. Otherwise, it is a very good laptop.

I have been using this laptop for about a month now and so far I am very impressed by its performance. Overall it it faster than many other laptops in its price range. When I was shopping around, I only had few criteria for a laptop. It had to have a DL-DVD writer, HDMI port, and a long battery life. I found several models that matched the first two categories, however finding a laptop with a good battery life proved difficult. At the end of my search I zeroed down 3 laptops. The Toshiba, Sony VAIO, and a Dell Studio Laptops, They all had 4 GB of Ram, Intel Core 2 Duo Processor and good size screen. The reason I picked the Toshiba over the other two was that it had a faster processor, non-glossy finish by the keyboard and a really long batter life. Another option that the Toshiba had that finally made the difference is the Bluetooth antenna built in. The price was within $50 for all three. One thing that this Laptop is missing though is an expansion slot. It would be nice to be able to plug in a TV tuner or a faster wireless card. Overall I am very happy with this laptop.

Haven't had it for long, but great so far

POSTED BY: Alex , San Francisco, CA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

So far I'm very pleased with my Toshiba Satellite E105. I have only had it for a month, so I can't yet speak to its longevity, but here's a summary of the top things I like and don't like about it. Like: Backlit keyboard is great for ease of use. Even in a room with lights, it's sometimes easier to see the keys. The feel of the mouse pad and the keyboard were what initially caught my attention. The keypad is soft, and the keys felt great. The mouse pad is smooth, without being sticky. I also like the touch-sensitive media controls next to the keyboard. The design is sleak. The processor is at the top of the range of power of all the laptops I was looking at. Other than that, it has everything else it should have (built in webcam, built in SD slot, eSATA port, HDMI port, fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth) Don't like: I wish it had a third USB port. It seems like everything today is made for USB, so the two ports it has goes fast. The left mouse button on the model I tried in the store was a little off (only the right side of the button worked), and I'm experiencing the same problem on mine. This would be a much bigger issue if I didn't use an external mouse. The only other thing I can think of is that the speaker quality is pretty poor. They're fine for normal computer activity (application sounds, etc.) but if you want to play music or movies on the computer, you'll almost definitely need external speakers. I hope the laptop turns out to be durable and last a long time. If it stays in the shape it's in now, I'll be pretty happy with it. If Toshiba added a USB port, increased the workmanship on the mouse, and put in better speakers, this would be a 5-star laptop for sure.

I have purchased Tosiba Satellite computers for the last ten years and presently have five left and in use. I would not recommend this computer only because of the Software packing. Windows Vista is only compatable with itself and 90% of the drivers and software I use will not work. The software bundle is for trial only and forces you to purchase a license to use it. What ever happened to the days when software was included? I still stand by the name Toshiba but will be looking closely at the next one I purchase. WHY, WHY, WHY didn't you make this one backwards compatable with XT? All this speed and features... and limited use. Toshiba, I am disappointed.

Good laptop, but sound is not up to par

POSTED BY: Katie , Denton, TX
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

One thing I have to point out is the lack of USB ports on this one. I purchased a monitor at the same time that I purchased the laptop at Best Buy and the geek told me it would hook up fine. I got home and guess what? No way to hook up the monitor to the computer because there aren't enough USB ports and there isn't any VGA port either. My last Toshiba did have this feature so I didn't think to look at it on this laptop. Now I am stuck with mini-monitor. The speakers on this system are horrible! You can't listen to anything not even speaking without that grating , vibrating, blaring noise even at very low levels. I can't purchase exterior speakers because....not enough USB ports...vicious cycle. The battery life is excellent. Took it on an 8 1/2 hour flight to Hawaii last month and it worked over half of the flight time so that was better than my last Toshiba. It only lasted 2 hours. The speed on this one is great,but for some reason, when I am on location, it won't allow me to use a lot of outside wireless. It works fine on mine at home, but when I am at airports and hotels, it doesn't allow me in to a lot of them. Some it does, but others it won't. All in all, check the number of USB ports and the speakers. If neither of these is a problem for you then this is a great purchase! It is lightweight and compact for travel with speed. Something that we really needed with our small business.

This is my first laptop and I was reluctant to purchase one. I looked at Dell, Gateway, and HP. I talked to a couple of computer support people about reliability. I still was not sure about the purchase. Years ago back in the early 90's I worked as controller a road construction company and remember that I had purchased Toshiba Laptops for the company to use in the field, and we never had any problems with them, they were bullit-proof. I then looked at the Toshiba's and asked my friends in computer support, they all said they rarely saw Toshiba laptops in for service compared to the other brands. That really helped make my decision, For my purposes I went with a smaller screen 15" and a faster processor, compact size was important to me. This laptop is the perfect machine for my use, and I am thrilled with the puchase.

The Ugly is there is NO Video output other than the HDMI, therefore I cannot not attached to any LCD projectors unless they have the new digital format. Also, this unit is not setup for use with a docking station that provides AC power.

This is my 3rd Toshiba laptop, overall performance is as good as it can get for this price range. One really bad draw back is the speaker, it is terrible!! make sure you get a headphone for this laptop if you are consider buying one.

A tad slow

The mouse left button has already failed. It is in the shop now. For as much memory and processing power this is suppose to have, it sure is slow compared to the other two Toshiba laptops I have.

Ok so this thing is smaller than most, that is a good thing for a student like me on the go. The number one problem I have with this thing is rather simple, the touch mousepad and click absolutely are a pain. It is just hard to use, clicking is a pain, as well as holding down either mouse button to say for example scroll. Perhaps it is the lack of a lasting impression but the touch pad is misleading. over all I don't like the set up, along with the touch buttons, which on one hand are cool. Except should you rest your hands on your laptop or attempt to scroll you can end up muting yourself.

Keys Are Impossible to See!

POSTED BY: SoxFan , Newton, MA
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

I basically like this computer, but the the letters and numbers imprinted on the keys are next to impossible to see. Everyone else who has used my laptop has had the same complaint. It is a real bother, but I'm finally learning to type without looking at the keys. Given a particularly demanding work cycle, this is not one of the activities on which I would have chosen to spend time.

Great Laptop---but

Great laptop, excellent battery life, nice weight, ease of use, very stable, back-lit keys is a plus in dim light. However, if you will be bothered by poor sound quality and weak volume from the built-in speakers then do not buy this laptop.

Good laptop but some things I don't like

I love Toshiba, and this seems like a decent computer so far, but there are some things I don't like. Some of the major problems are.... I do NOT like the fact that the touchpad is raised to the same level as everything else. When you type (which I do a lot of typing on my computer) part of your hand rests on the touchpad causing the mouse to move when you do not want it to. The mouse moves around the screen when you type and it is quite easy to accidentally click on something when you did not mean to. It is also annoying to see the mouse move around when you are typing when you are not meaning to touch the touchpad. This is a HUGE problem. Also, the right and left click buttons under the touchpad are super LOUD when you click them. Why are these so loud???? It makes clicking on something a chore because they are so loud. I also do not like the fact that there is a fingerprint identication button or slot in the middle of the right and left click buttons. Therefore, if you need to left click on something, you have to reach way over past the finger identification slot. I personally do not use the finger ID slot because I believe that it is just another excuse for "Big Brother" to watch you even though people are dumb enough to believe that it really has to do with safety and security, but that is another story. The computer also gets quite hot after 1 hour of use, but that is common for Toshiba. It does have good qualities but the flaws listed above have me considering taking mine back tomorrow.

Mixed Feelings

I purchased my Toshiba lap top the first week in June, and by the first week in July the computer would not longer shut down correctly. After taking it to a computer service store, I come to find that my one month old computer had a bum hardrive. This greatly annoyed me, and I was upset that I spend this kind of money on a computer that would not even last a month. I lost everything as a result, and I got a new hard drive. Since then, the computer has worked well. My only other complaint is the left mouse button is super loud.

I bought this laptop but was not able to get the drivers for using it on Windows XP. The support website does not provide any driver that is not Windows Vista 64.

Yes, the computer is fast, but the 64 bit system (which was not mentioned by the salesman) is a tremendous pain. Using Firefox, there are no Flash Player downloads available for 64 bit computers, so I can't get into YouTube or connect with my bank. Spent valuable time trying to get around this but, basically, there is no fix. I can use an older version of Explorer as my browser, but it is slow. There is also no socket for the type of (male, pin) plug used with standard AV systems, so I cannot use it for slideshows. Very depressed over this purchase. The computer looks good, but beauty is only skin deep!
