Toshiba Satellite 15.6" Laptop i7 8GB 1TB Windows 8.1 (S55T-B5273NR) is rated out of 5 by 51.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Poor hardware It is difficult for me to provide a detailed review of the computer as I had it for only one week. It would not stay connected to my home network. I researched online at toshiba.com and did everything suggested in the forums but it would still disconnect from the network. I contacted Toshiba support and she provided me with sage advise: Return it to the store i bought it from before I couldn't any longer. I bought a HP instead. Sorry Toshiba. I really liked the specs of this computer. Dependability is just as important though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Laptop Have had the S55T Laptop for over a month now. This laptop does everything I need it to with ease. It is fast and has tons of storage (not sure I will ever use it all). As a new user of Windows 8 I am still learning but it seems to be a good OS for this machine. The only negative is the battery which is a little disappointing given some other laptops I shopped before buying this one. My computing needs are not great; not a gamer or graphic artist; powerpoint, word processing, email.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Toshiba Satellite I rated it 4 only because I have not had it long enough to fully assess it. So far it has worked vey well and according to the specs. Booting up is easy, simple, and fast. I upgraded to Windows 10 and things are working well. I originally thought of using it only as a backup to my desktop, but I find some things easier to do on the Satellite. It looks like it will be one that I will enjoy using more than anticipated. No regrets about buying it. In fact, I recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Jumps off internet any time it wants. It is a nice,light computer with a nice back lit keyboard, nice finish and good feel. The touchpad was so sensitive and hard to use so I use a mouse. From the first time I used it it would jump off the internet randomly, and very often. It was sometimes 5 min of frustrated trying to get it back on. I though it must be my router until I read honest reviews of owners who were having the very same problems. Instead of the raving 4 & 5 star reviews on the stores site, these honest reviewers were giving it 0 to 2 stars. Would be a nice computer if it did what I buy laptops for, to get and stay on internet and a good usable touch pad. After 3 weeks and finally reading other computers with same problem, I took it back for full refund. I will never buy another Toshiba nor recommend it to anyone. What a shame, could of been an amazing computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great tool This is a nice laptop. The I7 processor and 1T drive make it a beast. I don't know how many programs it can run simultaneously, but it can run office, multiple software development IDEs (VS2013 pro, Atmel Studio) and stream music without hesitation. The touchscreen is very nice when working with other people or doing a small demonstration. I am learning to love Windows8. This is a trouble-free machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Does the work I use this laptop mainly for grad work and running a few applications. So far is working well. The touch scree is a good feature to have to browse thru PDF and ppt documents. Love the lighted keyboard shock is petty handle to work at night. Have not loaded it up with of high damson software so can't comment on that. Like my old satellite i get the impression that the fans is in very often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good Desktop Replacement I bought this computer to meet all of my needs that would normally necessitate desktop computer. It's really fast and has all of the latest technology installed into it. Except for not having a cd-rom drive, this laptop has everything. The only thing that I don't like is that the space bar key isn't very responsive, but it's functional. Overall it's a great computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Best deal for an I7 processor Great product but would have been better for me if it was sold without all of the extra apps. I had problems with some of the apps, especially Norton and spent a couple hours trying to uninsstall it. After Norton was uninstalled, performance really improved. Also, how about a simple uninstall program to get rid of all of the pre-installed apps.
