Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from You get what you pay for... This is your basic laptop. No fast performance, no fancy gadgets, but for the money its ok. It takes too long to process different things and at time it takes to long to open different tasks. If you can afford another laptop with better performance do it, if not and just want it for surfing the web and basic tasks, than this is the Laptop for you! I will always recommend a Toshiba to anyone, just not this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from A Great Computer, At A Great Price! I bought the Toshiba Satellite to replace an HP laptop that had finally crashed after years of use. I originally bought the Toshiba because of the great price but once I started using it I am impressed with the systems ease of use. For a lower end laptop it has some great features and the speed of the processor is very impressive. The speakers are not really up to speed but that is par for a laptop. It also has a very touchy keyboard that jumps a bit, but I am getting used to it, better to use the mouse than the touch pad to manuver through the programs. I would suggest this computer to anyone looking to upgrade from an old laptop and and a really good value for the college student looking for a reliable mobile work station.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good "second" or "bedroom" computer Could use a couple more USB ports and a Bluetooth antenna. Would be FANTASTIC to have a power connection on BOTH sides of the case when cord length is an issue. Came with 4GB RAM, upgradable to eight. Ordered "another 4GB from Toshiba. Once chip arrived, realized there were two 2GB chips installed. Had to order and ADDITIONAL 4GB chip to make a total of 8GB. A bit of an expensive bummer. Value-for- Prformance is very good. Keyboard could be more egro, but I only paid $249 on Best Buy hot special. Great for Facebook while watching TV, but not a "main computer"

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from It's OK Just as a kick-around laptop I guess it's not too bad. My main issues are the very low volume the speakers provide, that the battery isn't in securely and is loose and the battery life as well and that the trackpad doesn't respond as well as I feel it should. I would think I should be able to tap it anywhere to "click" but the only place I found that it works most of the time is in the lower right corner. I'm thinking of returning it or at least compare it to other the store has to see if maybe mine is just the exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Love This Laptop its the Best I just love this laptop. I use to have an Emachine laptop but it wasn't as fast as this laptop. Skype on this is great. I have already recommended this laptop to friends,co-workers and to my customers. When I am looking up things on the web it moves with great speed. I like how the keys on the keyboard are flat and not rounded it is so much faster to type on. It has Toshiba Book Place and on the settings it can be programmed to read the books to you. Colors are great so playing games is so much fun, pics look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from bought 2 for the parents / fine for students Bought one for my mom and g.f. picked up one for her father. Great for internet surfing and light tasks. This is not a high end gaming machine. Need at least an i5 with 6 gig of memory and a Nvidia or AMD graphics. This will, however, do any word processing, spreadsheet app. or simple games without a problem. Screen is too small to for graphics apps. Colour is decent. Contrast is decent. 4 gig. of memory is enough for most people/apps. 320 gig. hdd is a little on the small side, but normal for the price of the laptop. Aside from the small screen (too small for graphics work), this is fine for students whose parents are footing the bill for it. Your kid wants a gaming machine, make them pay the difference, since this is more than adequate for any school-work (non-engineering/science).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Toshina Satellite Laptop I would not recommend this product. It has a marked tendency to overload, and lock up, and get full CPU usage quickly, even with 4gb of ram.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great everyday laptop and then some !! This is a nice simple laptop for everyday use. Although this isn't a gaming laptop by no means, it does have sufficient speed and performance for simple multitasking very effortlessly and efficiently. I must agree about the low speaker quality but you can tweak it a bit otherwise maybe external speakers are best. Full keyboard with 10-key numeric pad also a plus. Display is great and DVDs looks great. This may not be the best processor but again for the money value it's pretty good and unless you're a gamer or doing daily business then perhaps i3 or higher is better but prepare for the pricetag adjustment too. Overall this gets a very fair and well deserved 4-star rating. This is my 3rd toshiba laptop purchased for myself and as gifts and probably won't be my last. Enjoy your toshiba whichever one you buy !!
