This is a very good laptop. it is very fast. The only thing I don't like about it is that it only has 2 usb ports the speakers don't go very loud. the battery is somewhat short but every laptop battery is short unless you get the extended battery. otherwise this laptop is great!

We got a great deal on the purchase of the laptop so the performance is way better than we expected to get. Set-up was very easy and we were using the laptop within minutes of removing it from the box. Graphics are excellent. It has a great feature set for the price.

This is my first laptop. I purchased a cordless mouse. You can turn off the Touchpad---much easier to use that way. The speed, display, size, weight are just fine. Would have liked a paper copy of the manual, but the online manual is very helpful. Uses battery content pretty fast, but not hard to find a plug to regenerate. Looking forward to installing free Windows upgrade. Great laptop for the price.

My husband purchased a Satellite 5 years ago and, as he travels, leaves it in his car where Phoenix temperatures surpass 130 degrees. It gets its fair share of abuse and keeps working fine. He bought me an expensive HP which lasted 2.5 years and the motherboard went out. UGH! He said, "How about another Satellite?" The price was much less and the quality stands for itself! Ta-Daaaa! Problem solved. Toshiba has our vote - hands down!

have not encountered a single problem with my laptop. It is fast and dependable and the battery lasts a long time. For the price this was far better both in quality and speed than what l paid a year ago for my other laptop. The upgrades are easy to install from the Toshiba website. I am 100% satisfied with my laptop.

It's hard to get the speakers to operate all the time and the volume wheel should be a button on the keyboard surface, not on the front of the computer.

This computer is a pretty good one for the money. However, it does have software issues, such as windows and explorer shutting down all the time. I do all the updates and this still keeps happening. I hope this problem will be fixed when I get Windows 7.

Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Have'nt had long enough to fully review, still transfering over files and loading software. The last laptop I had didn't have the number pad so the offset keyboard takes a little getting use to. So far the performance and speed is good, like many other users I dislike vista. The only disapointment so far is sound - both the volume control and the loudness of the speakers. I use my computer in a loud enviroment and the laptop is half the volume of my last, makes it very hard to hear and I am not at liberty to use headphones so..... The dial to turn the volume up has no limits so you dont know when its at max or min without using the task bar and highlighting. Its a nice laptop at a good price just low audio. Hope windows 7 is better otherwise xp sp3 here i come

Were it not for abysmal battery battery life, I would have sung the praises of this machine. It is fairly fast except for very video-intensive programs. It has b/g wireless connection built in. It also has a nice large keyboard with a nice feel.

Excellent Value for an Above Average Machine

POSTED BY: rafetx , Plano, TX
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

This machine offers quality features with good performance. The peripherals are above average for the price range and the included features are a nice bonus. The only draw back is the entry level quality of the speakers and webcam. The battery life could also be better, but I am able to get over 2.5 hours of video watching out of a full batter. I recommend this machine to anyone looking at the lower priced netbooks. The screen quality alone make it worth the extra $50.

works well the laptop does what its sussposed to do. It could process faster. Vista seems to be a drag on processing and the operating system tends to limit the computers abilities. But i would reccoment this system its nice and a fair price.

So far, it has performed well, but nothing is perfect in this world. There is always room for improvement. In this case, the volume is not loud enough. My grandson has a different Toshiba and the sound on his is loud and clear. Additionallyl, this one should have a switch to turn the touch paid off. I keep touch the pad while typing and it screws thing up. Otherwise, it is not bad. GBO
