This is my first laptop, and I did not know quite what to expect or whether I would enjoy the transition from a traditional desktop computer. But I discovered that my new Toshiba, which was priced very competitively considering its features, was very easy to set up and use; for barely one-third the price of my old desktop, it came pre-loaded with more than ten times the hard drive space and sixteen times as much RAM! I was very impressed with it's capabilities and the recent advances in technology. I am confident about Toshiba's reputation for quality and look forward to many years of enjoyment! Thank you!

I received my new laptop as a gift and I couldn't be more pleased. This is a terrific laptop and easy to use. I have had absolutely no problems with the laptop (except a few difficulties with Windows 8, but that's Microsoft, not Toshiba) and would highly recommend this laptop to anyone looking for one.

Pleasantly Surprised

I am very satisfied with this laptop. It came with Windows 8 installed but I found that using the desktop link works great and gets me around any Windows 8 issues. It is fast and thus far reliable.

Great laptop

This laptop is pretty amazing, it has a huge amount of memory and it runs great, windows 8 is a little confusing at first but it just takes getting used to. The webcam won't save pictures I take anymore, but you just have to download a different webcam app.

Good Laptop but has problems

I don't know if this is a windows problem or a PC problem but the computer doesn't remember my identity when I want to go back to a site I visited before. This happens if I have visited a site one time or a hundred times. It doesn't matter if I indicated I want to be remembered or not. This is very irritating and wastes a lot of time. The computer is fast enough for my requirements but navigating from some areas to others can be cumbersome.

Like the processor and ram that came with laptop. Only wish it was loaded with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8. Not a touchscreen laptop so hard to get around Windows 8. If had Windows 7 would have given it 5 stars across the board.

Great Laptop

This laptop is really great. I wasn't used to the keyboard at first, but I got a hang of it and it's just fantastic. I really recommend it and I can nearly guarantee that you won't regret. :)

I like the unit. But windows 8 is a joke. To clumsy, doesn't like lots of apps. Gives you too many error messages!

Does not support Linux

Seems to run Windows OK but I did not use it much. Attempted to load Linux as dual boot, as only operatiing system and as guest in VMWare Workstation 9. All failed forcing reload of factory default from DVD. Product returned since it could not be used for intended application.

A Pain in the Gluteus Maximus

Nothing but frustration with Windows *8. Found program to change to Windows 7 start. Norton antivirus that comes with laptop did not stop any pop ups. Very annoying!! Constant interruptions while trying do anything on the laptop. Purchased Norton online stopped 90% of the problems. Whenever prompted within a web site to click to go to another site, a search window would come up. But trying the 2nd time to go to the site, no problem occurred getting there. (This happened every time.) Not a fun time with this laptop!!
