Powerful and beautiful

POSTED BY: Rodrigo SV , Paraguay
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

Met my expectations, good performance and good looks. Graphical power as expected with autocad 2013. Battery life of three hours with moderate use, reasonable to good performance. Really pleased with my purchase.

This laptop has great performance. Its incredibly fast and has a great graphics card for gaming. It's sleek and looks amazing. However, the battery life is on average about 3 hours, which was not expected. However, everything else would be great for everyday and gaming use!!

Little clicks

POSTED BY: clicksalot
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 3 out of 5

Unfortunately, the mouse pad on the computer is rather problematic. Clicking is not uniform, and sensitivity across the pad itself is also not uniform. This would greatly benefit from a touchscreen, a better mouse pad, or, in my case, an external mouse. It would also be nice if the screen opened further back. The power cord sticking straight out is problematic for use on the lap (LAPtop). It should be more streamlined along the body of the computer, possibly an L shape so it does not break off accidentally or damage the socket in the computer. I've rated the features two stars simply because of the abundance of good components grouped together. Like I've noted, the things that seem to be uniquely 'Toshiba' don't really seem to be all that outstanding. The computer will, however, suit my needs.

MSRP: $866.99
