Pros pretty fast, cheap, huge screen, number pad
Cons I treat this thing like an egg but still I've lost 2 drives in 8 months... The person at the Toshiba authorized repair center said they see a lot these come in with bad drives...
Summary AWESOME laptop but carry like a baby!
Pros Beast speakers in a laptop, great price, dedicated graphics, clean look, Fusion Finish is "scratch proof", and comfortable keyboard( I can no longer use other keyboards without feeling disappointed).
Cons Finger prints, not wireless n, some points in its construction feel a little "soft", finger prints, battery life is slightly shorter than comparable machines, and did I say fingerprints.
Summary At $850 for the s8822 model, smaller drive, I couldn't find a better laptop on the market. The 256MB card was a must for me, I was tired of seeing all these damn integrated P.O.S.s. The processor is a little slower than i had hoped for, and doesn't have much room for upgrades. The media keys are a nice touch when you're multitasking, but a little bit oversensitive. The Fusion Finish is a major fingerprint magnet, but is basically un-scratchable. Only one I have on mine after 9 months is from a screw. Touch pad is very user friendly and has a unique feel that was described as slippery sandpaper. Some construction points are a little shoddy, the rubber feet all came off one at a time, the A/C adapter point is a little loose, and the disc drive always wants to open up. Other than that though I have been completely satisfied with this purchase. I use it mostly for Photo Shop and class work, but can rank out decent game play with modest settings. If your techno savvy or have time to learn a new skill and some confidence, you can even safely OC this system to get an extra 5-10 fps in most games. I'm a big fan of Fallout 3 and play it with medium settings at just over 20 fps at all times. Bottom line, this is the best system for the price, and a good system period, and at most, you need to spend 1 min a week to wipe it clean.
Pros Stable - hasnt crashed
Fast - not loaded w bunches of junk programs like Dell or HP
Nice Finish, not a scratch
Resilient screen, not a scratch
Cons video resolution - i would like more than 1200, but thats enough for most users.
screen angle - if you are of, color varies drastically
glossy screen - hard to work outdoors, glare
Summary Best laptop i ever had by far. video issues affect you if you work outdoors a lot, or if you do color correction.
Pros EASY TO USE, GREAT SIZE FOR SOMEONE THAT HAS LOW VISION LIKE MYSELF, GOOD VALUE FOR THE MONEY, HELPFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE
Cons IT IS HEAVY
Summary MAINLY I LIKE IT OTHER THAN THE WEIGHT
Pros Performance, Sound, Design
Cons Occasional Windows Vista Hang-Ups (not Toshiba's fault)
Summary I had been in the market for a new laptop for quite a while. So I bought a Dell...biggest mistake I ever made. After having nothing but problems with it I finally returned it. I eventually came across this computer and fell in love with it. This sucker has kick-butt performance and a style I have never seen in a laptop. As I said in the title line, its the best computer I've ever owned.
