Best laptop I've had yet!!!

POSTED BY: Buell1125Rguy
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

I have personally owned an HP, Dell and the Toshiba I am using now. I must say, Toshiba blows the other two away. Its does everything I need it to and doesn't seem to have any problems like the others did. Not only is the computer itself fast, but browsing the internet is a breeze.

Very Nice Laptop

POSTED BY: SherpaB , Highlands Ranch, CO
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

Will handle any basic to advanced computing task without a problem and actually quite well. I am not a gamer but I guess its not great for games. I am self employed and use it to crunch numbers, work with databases, and the like. I even watch a dvd now and then and it performs very well. The battery life is excellent. There is a ton of hard drive space on this thing too. Complaints: none. Unless you are going to spend $1000 more on a laptop...anything you buy that costs more is going to marginally better for 99% of most users. Great wifi capability, great memory, great screen, this is a great package at an excellent price. Also the bloatware is relatively minimal...MS Office etc. pretty easy to undo.

I use this machine for tasks that most Americans do" Web surfing, email, Microsoft Office, video and picture editing. Very smooth machine with no issues. It doesn't bog down and screen is excellent quality. Although, the screen is very glossy and does have a significant amount of glare if in the right sun light

I explored some netbooks and other laptops and my techie boyfriend also approved this one. He said it was between this one and the HP but the HP didnt have as good reviews on battery. I am very happy with my selection. Only cons are shiny finish gets smudged a lot and cannot come with linux operating system.

I am an IT professional and I work from home. I had a 17' toshiba laptop that was a powerhorse, but it was too big to take to the couch to sit with the kids, when that one died, I bought this one because the foot print is small enough to cuddle kids and work and it's powerful enough to run MS Visual Studio, SQL server and any other app I need for work. My last laptop ran 24/7/365 for 2 1/2 years before it died. This one is much less expensive, I'm hoping it lasts as long if not longer. I'm hard on laptops, If I don't have any software or hardware issues for 2 1/2 years a normal person could use that same machine for 4 or 5 years without and service...that is why I use Toshiba's.

Absolutely Awesome for My Needs. + Incredible Battery Life (Like, 6 Hours) + Perfect Size, Portability + Durable + Great Price @ Best Buy + Lots of room for storage, programs + FAST. Only downside is that the black shiny keys are prone to finger marks. Not as bad as I thought it would be though, and still looks pretty sharp even with smudges. Everyone comments on how "cool" it looks, which is nice, but I am much happier with the overall performance of this laptop. I went through 2 Dells in 6 months... had hard drive failures, motherboard issues, etc. Toshiba has answered my prayers with this laptop and I spent about $400 less on this computer.

I've had this laptop for 2 weeks now - chose toshiba, in part, based on reviews by consumer reports. I'm using it for home finances and stuff, so did not need a large screen - but toshiba's screen is plenty big - and crystal clear. It's packed with the things I wanted: lots of RAM, huge amount of storage, great screen, good feel to the mousepad, and looks great. No problems whatsoever.

i am extremely happy with the purchase.the features are perfect.looks.design are all perfect. design-just perfect.excellent battery life.excellent keyboard.doen;t heat up like other brand laptops.i was on it for over 12hours occasionally and it yet was not even warm. the music display controls are excellent.very efficient. battery-lasts for a good 5 hours.more than wonderful:-) drawbacks-by far, i could find at the max three drawbacks.one of them being extremely important, other two not so important. the big one is-lack of bluetooth.i would have a much better use if i had bluetooth here.for having bluetooth, higher priced multimedia laptops were available which had bigger screens and they're more like tv's than laptops. the two smaller ones, the camera resolution isn't very high, though it's satisfactory.sometimes images break up even in day time in proper light. the entire laptop is glossy.very good finish but leaves fingerprint marks all over it. over all looks-fantastic.very stylish. oh yes.one more thing.the sound is amazing.the speakers deliver better than most of the laptops i've used.

This is a superb upgrade from my 4 years old dell. speed is average, comparable to my 1.8gz single core processor, but handle multiple task effectively without slowing down or crash. Pro: battery life (its 9 cells will last 4:30 on regular setting ). run cool and quiet ( the fan rarely run if you put at a well ventilated area ) Con: intel graphic card is too slow. I play Civilization4 which only require 64mb of memory. And this graphic card has 128mb to 1800mb. yet it take around 10 minutes before the image show up. the page stay blank. Its a great all around portable laptop. Perfect size and great battery life. Very highly recommended.

I am a mechanical engineer working on my PhD and use this laptop every day. It is a wonderful performer with an incredible battery life. The only reason I would consider a different laptop is if my primary use for it was video editing, 3D CAD (computer aided drafting), or heavy gaming, because these tasks would work much better with a dedicated graphics card. Other than that, my opinion is that laptops should no longer be looked at as investments. We trade them out about as often as we do our cell phones (every 2 years, in my case), and it's not worth paying twice as much as you can get this laptop for.

Last spring I looked for a great, small, sturdy, fast laptop to take to Tanzania where I would be a guest lecturer at a University. It had to hook up to any VGA projection system, have a good battery since electricity can be scarce and flaky, and be small, lightweight, and still be easy on my eyes. My Toshiba has been super! It survived daily trips in crowded public transportation on bumpy dirt roads and unreliable power. The seminars were attended by almost 500 students during my six week visit. One note - due to the 64 bit OS, I can't upload to some sites using IE 8, but this is resolved by using Safari or Chrome. It's an Active X thing.

I picked this laptop after doing a lot of research with Consumer Reports magazine. I am actually downsizing from the Dell laptop I had. This Toshiba is lightweight, fast and has an excellent battery life. To bad it wasn't available when I started my Master's degree three years ago. The only thing I do not like is that it does not have Word/Excel/Powerpoint on it. Fortunately, I still had Microsoft Student edition which I was able to load.

I hated buying a "big" laptop after having carried Sony's original Vaio sub-notebook, but needed more speed. From 3 to 5 lbs would be terrible I thought, but not with the 6 hours of battery life I had across the Atlantic last week and great speed and features. this is a great buy!

Great Laptop - a true bargain

POSTED BY: English Professor , California
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

Beign a "true libra," I did my research before this purchase. Consumer Reports rated this laptop just under the MacBooks. And from all the reviews I read, it seemed the biggest "complaint" had to do with fingerprints. AHA!! I thought. I have an iPod Touch - I'm used to fingerprints. So I purchased the laptop and am just delighted. It's fast, efficient, the screen is very easy on the eyes (important when grading student work), and as I was prepared for the "fingerprints," I'm not bothered by them at all. All-in-all this was an excellent purchase for me.

Great student laptop

POSTED BY: Myklem , Santa Clara, CA
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I researched for 2 months before deciding on this particular model (It was between Sony, Dell, Hp, and Toshiba)... Decided against Sony because it's overpriced for the same build, you're basically paying for the brand. Researched a lot into Dell and realize that it isn't the best laptop to get if you plan to keep it for more than 2 years, cheap parts. As for HP, it was the price that had it defeated by Toshiba. However, I'm very happy with my decision since this laptop is provides great value for its price. It has everything I need and it isn't very heavy to carry around with me on campus. However, it's a 9 cell battery so bear in mind that the battery will stick out of the laptop, not very pretty but I'll sacrifice for battery life which is amazing, it goes for up till 3.5 hours (Usual activities: watching videos, surfing the web, using Microsoft office). Definitely would recommend this laptop to students, the sound system (Harman Kardon) is AMAZING as well... even my bf who normally zones out with his laptop stop what he was doing to compliment the sound system on the laptop =)

I bought this laptop for my wife to use in her business. It does everything it should and we've had no problems with it. The only problem that I have with it is the very shiny keyboard which makes it hard to read when room light reflects from it. If the keys were matte, it would be much easier to use. Fortunately, I'm a touch typist so it doesn't bother me as much as it does my wife.

M305-S4910 Laptop Review

POSTED BY: Nick , Milwaukee, WI
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Good laptop. It was between this one and an $849 laptop. The higher priced one was not rated by CR Reports-and was HP which I've never been a fan of. I was looking at the higher priced one because it had sooo many cool features. Ultimatley that almost drew me away from this one. But at the end of the day this one was rated #2 by CR Reports, and was affordable. It has good performance, although maybe its just me but the battery seems to go fast. I use it for the Intenet, Email, Microsoft Products and a couple other small things. I use my desktop for all my PC Programs and more intensive stuff. The touch pad on this laptop is very smooth and feels great. The only thing I wish this laptop had was a backlit keyboard and maybe a few more perks or features (I'd even pay a few more bucks), but I'm 21 and I like that stuff. But otherwise it does it's job, is quick, and again rated very high. I can't compare it to other laptops because this is my first one.

This is my first laptop. I had 3 brands in mind like HP, Sony and Toshiba. But HP and sony overshot my budget for the features i expected, Toshiba is the only laptop which seemed really economical. Firstly the look and feel of the laptop is simply phenomenal with its glossy finish and silver stripes ( never seen it on any other laptop).Second, the performance is really good. when i mean performance, its the ability to handle 3D extremely well. Third, the speakers are too good for a laptop.Fourth, this laptop is really light, i mean even a 12 yr old kid can carry it safely.Fifth, the screen clarity is simply out of the world. The list goes on and on. To put it simply, Value for the money that you spend on a electronic gadget!!!

The fan gets loud and this gets on my nerves at times. If starting it up on the battery sometimes the screen is completely black making me have to restart it. Is this normal? I don't think so. When I first bought it, the screen would black out then go to the regular screen. So far it hasn't been a pain to me to where I have to take it in for a check-up.

Performance on this laptop is sufficient for my needs. This would not be the perfect computer for a gamer, however, for my pictures, on-line shopping, and Office Suite activities this computer is perfect for the money. It is not stuffed with junk software that you don't want or need, which is a real plus to me. I don't like the surface on the keys, they are too slippery, I am a fairly fast typist but with these keys it has slowed me down due to the slippery surface. I would also like it to have a locking system when closing the laptop, it opens when you are trying to place it in a carrying case. for me this increases the chance for dropping the unit.

Hi, I've been using this product for little more than a month and I found it simply the best. Reasons: >>High configuration(4GB RAM/2.0GHz Processor) gives better performance. >>Medium weight(just 2.47KG) does not produce irritation while using it for hours. >>Long battery life >>Internet access is quite good but IE is lil' bit slow that's obviously not a problem of this product.One can use Google Chrome for better experience. >>I can't say anything about gaming as I generally don't play any! >>Overall look is elegant but shiny keyboard irritates as it gives reflection when light falls from some particular direction and its hard to see character printed on the keys. >>I found speakers(harman/kardon) really great. Sound quality is so nice. >>I dont any problem in absense of bluetooth. >>I would appreciate if it has more USB slots. 2 is JUST OK. >>Volume +/- roller button is good. >>It would add more beauty if keys just below touch pad had the black color instead of steel. >>Webcam experience is good. Last but not the least, If someone wants to buy a laptop with All in one attitude, S/he can definitely buy this one. Thanks!

As you can tell I am a bit tech challenged-so maybe someone more experienced could fix those issues. Otherwise, I like it. The battery life is excellent! The keys are nice to use, the screen is really nice and clear. Mostly easy to use.
