Pros Excellent computer, better than our Dell desktop, beats in memory (ram), speed and hard drive space. Machine is lightweight & internal wifi is a +++. Multiple powered USBs with easy access on side - not back.
Cons Screen is crystal clear except for bad glare from lindoor and outdoor lighting- keys have same problem. Power cord is on side of machine as opposed to back. Shows fingerprints on keys and casing .
Summary I absolutly love the functionality of this notebook! I had a Dell laptop w/ XP for over 5 years, and this Toshiba w/ Vista was an excellent upgrade!!
I love the sleak look of this pc - the only thing that I dislike is how easily you can see fingerprints, as well as the reflection/glare. Excellent that there are two USBs on each side, makes for easier uploading, etc. Back of notebook is propped up by stationary leg which keeps machine running cool. Definitely recomend this product!!
Pros Webcam , Harman Kardon stereo speakers w touch media controls above keyboard, Large area to rest your wrist while typing, Excellent WiFi, pci slot, serial ATA, dvd burner, 3gb of mem, 320gb hd, t6400 centrino core 2 duo, wireless a/g/n
Cons media controls lack volume control, dvd burner has labelflash not lightscribe not sure which is more effecient, when typing on home keys touch pad is a bit sensitive but can be adjusted. These are minor to me except I have a lot of lightscribe discs
Summary Bottom line is I would recommend this laptop to anyone. I did a lot of research before I purchased it because I didnt want to spend a lot of money but didnt want to get the cheapest. Most laptops I checked out with wireless n technology for this price was 14.1" screen while this one has 15.4". Most may have had 3gb of mem but only 250gb hd this one has 320. 4 usbs w the combo of a serial ata port on one. Most have Turion 2 or dual-core or athlon 2 with T3200 or 5400 or so processors, this one had T6400. It doesnt get hot. I have not tried to max out the battery yet so I dont know but I always keep the adapter w me. I have to do more research on labelflash this is new technology. I have been using lightscribe. This laptop has labelflash and also my new gateway desktop. OVERALL BUY IT!!!!!!!
Pros Love the media controls & the blue bar on the touch pad.The mouse maneuvers perfectly.The durability is remarkable. The battery is partially raised which helps keep the laptop cool. This laptop has gone above and beyond the expectations given.
Cons Power cord had to be replaced within a few months after purchase
Summary This laptop has been tested to the max through my constant, daily use and my carelessness of dropping it so many times. Its come through with flying colors. You can't go wrong with this laptop. I expect another 3 years out of it.We skype with friends in Germany at least once a week. All 3 of us use Toshibas. Never have any problems.

Pros have had 2 years and 1 month of trouble free service, runs just as fast as when purchased, sharp looking, battery life (roughly 4hr on powersaver), Durable (dropped twice, resulting in only cosmetic damage), nice, relatively quiet
Cons Bulkier than expected, comes w/ larger battery pack that sticks out the bottom,no hdmi output, does not have graphics memory a gamer would need, no number pad
Summary Excellent computer for a student who does basic stuff( surfing the web, writing papers, watching movies, downloads music), this has been one of many fantastic Toshiba laptops my family has owned! I use my laptop everyday and it was worth every penny I spent on it! Has been both reliable and durable!
Pros Great keyboard, excellent speakers and microphone, good media control
Cons The camera isn't that good, the graphics aren't that good also
