Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Don't buy without a mouse My two biggest disappointment with this computer: 1) The trackpad was impossible to use. It jumped between unresponsive and overly responsive. Don't buy this laptop without an external mouse or trackball. 2) Windows 7 was not fun. I get that they want to make the OS as close to the mobile OS as possible, but the fact is that the mobile OS is comparatively awful because mobile devices don't have the same power as laptops or desktop units. Forcing users to figure out how to get away from the 'mobile experience' is a huge pain. Especially for older folks who weren't expecting it. Please let Microsoft know that they make the end user experience worse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Still Working the Bugs Out Apparently For the most part this is a great computer. Personally, I do not particularly care for Windows 8. It's a pain. Other than that, the only other problem I have is that right from the time I took the computer out of the box to the present, I go end up with 3-4 "Your PC has experienced a problem and will now restart" messages and cycles per use. It gets irritating, to say the very least! It also did not appear to come with any sort of productivity software installed, which was extremely disappointing to me. Despite these issues, when I am not getting these annoying messages, the computer is fast, easy to see, and fun, once you get used to how Windows 8 works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Best Laptop Ever! My opinion on the Toshiba Laptop computer is a great computer it is very easy to use I would recommend it to anyone who asked me about it. I enjoy it very much and would buy another in the future. Good Job, keep up the good work. I had to get use to the Windows 8 but once I familiarized myself with it not so bad of a program. I had heard a lot of people complaining about it but I find it very easy to use. Toshiba makes a good product I would continue to purchase them in the future. This is the second Toshiba Laptop I have owned I prefer it over others. I give a thumbs up to Toshiba Continue to make the best computers ever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from I bought this for college! I bought this laptop because my old laptop was getting really slow and had a half hour battery life. I got this laptop and it worked okay. the first problem I had was it was slow, just like my old one! I had a few problems with the keys not working but thought I must be doing something wrong. I went to college this year and I keep having more problems. The CD drive does not always open, the keys don't work every time I touch them and now the mouse pad keeps quitting and I have to plug in a mouse in order to use it! This is not convenient for me because in order for me to use my computer I have to have my charger and a mouse! I needed something more dependable not less!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from worst laptop ever Comes with no instructions on how to get started on a laptop. or even to get on line or anything. What does a router do or explain it? How to use when traveling and what you must do. Bought this for traveling and so far its useless. No place for a disc to watch something. How do you get on airplane site. Just no instructions Can I buy a mouse and use it with laptop?Don't be cheap print a manuel with instructions. I wasn't raised with a computer. This might be a great computer but useless if you don't know how to operate it. Even sales people were stumped when I asked questions after purchase and going back to store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Not Worth the Money at all We bought the laptop thinking it was a good deal, but the computer lasted less than 3 months. To fix the LCD sceen would cost 2/3 of what we originally spent on the computer. We did not drop it. We did not sit on it. We did not put in by heat. They said it could be due to dust, but my house is not that dirty and we had a case for it. This was the worst money we ever spent. If dust is an issue and a laptop cannot sit in your lap without it breaking then you need to add filters to prevent damage. One another note...Windows 8 is not real user friendly compared to past software programs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Don't Do It!!! I have had several computers over the years and this is BY FAR the WORST computer I have EVER had! I have had it for 3 days now and am completely unsatisfied. It is more difficult to navigate and is extremely slow. Any time I scroll or perform any simple task, it freezes before it will complete it. Sometimes it will just freeze all together requiring me to refresh the whole page or even reboot the whole computer. Downloading takes FOREVER! Forget playing games or watching movies, You Tube, or anything like that. It continually freezes and the sound quality is horrible! It does have some nice features such as the apps but not worth it enough to keep this piece of junk. Save you money and get something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Overall Happy with Purchase I'm overall happy with my purchase of the laptop and have had only one issue. The issue was related to a Windows Update KB2778344 which is incompatible with the AMD Display card drivers in the laptop. I was experiencing frequent Blue Screens until I uninstalled the update and blocked it from reinstalling per instructions on the Microsoft web site. I checked with Toshiba Support first but they were totally unaware of the issue. I also had to restore my OS as the frequent Blue Screens had damaged the system. Since uninstalling and blocking the Windows Update KB2778344 I have had no further issues and the laptop is working great. The purchase of this laptop was a great value for what you get and considering the low cost.
