Awesome but 8.1 painful w/o touch screen

POSTED BY: peanut64 , Denver, co
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

There seem to be few choices for high powered ultra books now. This machine is loaded for performance and is relatively light weight and very portable. Much lighter than some "gaming" machines. I use a new dell at work and old XPS at home but have never seen a touch screen nor windows 8.1. I didn't think I needed a touch screen so I ordered the GX1. But with windows 8.1 I now see you are forced to keep scrolling back and forth to the corners of the screen and the traditional mouse pad is not efficient for this #IMO#. I'm returning the GX1 and getting the GX2 with the touch-screen. I guess I'd blame MS for this. Toshiba gives the consumer a choice of touch screen or not. IMO, its a non-brainer, you have to have a touch screen. Otherwise the machine is awesome.

poor performance and defective products

1.The "g" key does not work well. Sometimes no character is output, but sometimes double characters are output. 2.The laptop has 8GB SSD as cache, however, the performance is very poor. 3.It takes long time to read and write files to the hard drive. 4.The computer cannot run Toshiba portable monitor well. My old laptop (6years) can run it. I tried to figure it out, for example update the driver, uninstall the software, or close the integral video card. 5. The memory is 12GB and it has a separate video card. However, when I view the website, I always feel the display quality worse than my old laptop. 6. The price is not good for the configuration. I love Lenovo IdeaPad or ThinkPad more after comparing to this one (the stability for IdeaPad is a little worse, but the value and performance are very good). I will return it and buy a ThinkPad. 7. The performance index cannot be viewed directly. However, I found the files. The score is 4.3 which is much less than my old one. Thus, I had unhappy experience. 8. The face recognition is too stupid.

Slow performance

Purchased this computer and have been working on it since. Beware, if it needs repaired, you will have to pay to ship the laptop to them. That's right, YOU the consumer will have to pick up the tab. Beware!!!!!

I had to send back this computer that I ordered from Toshiba Direct. The sound could barely be heard despite turning up the volume in every concievable way. It must have been defective. I won't buy over the internet again. Toshiba did ,however; refund my money in full.
