Pros battery life, screen size, bundled wireless tools
Cons Anemic graphics
Summary I get a good 4.5 hours battery life if I don't use the optical drive. It's very light and the bundled WiFi tools are great, although you have to sort between competing tools and just pick one to use on a daily basis; I picked the Intel ProSET, which switches between my home, my inlaws' home, and my work WLANs automagically. The graphics are fine for office and websurfing work, but completely inadequate for gaming.
Pros Fast, easy, lightweight, powerful
Cons I have found no cons at all
Summary I used CNET to research tablets and decided on this one before much reporting had been done on it. I LOVE this computer...it is so fast and powerful, plus the convenience of the tablet makes it really fun to use. I am very impressed. It's my first Toshiba too!
Pros Great price, nice screen and very responsive
Cons The only way it could be better is if the battery lasted 12 hours
Summary This tablet, convertible or whatever you want to call it is the best laptop I have ever purchased! At 6.2 lbs it is not heavy. It replaced a Toshiba A65-S1070 that weighed over 8 lbs! The A65 had a 3GHZ HT processor and ran incredibly hot and the 12cell battery never lasted more than 2.5hrs! The R15 on the other had does not get hot eventhough I have it on for 10+ hours (plugged in) and the battery lasts 4+ hours if you tweak the power settings and turn off the power to the optical drive. Its equipped with a vibration sensor that parks the heads on the HD to protect it if it gets bumped or dropped. It comes with Office OneNote which is great way to keep track of notes and anything else you may want to write down. It's integrates with outlook so that you can email handwritten notes. It recognizes my chicken-scratch better than I do and converts it into text whenever the need arises. The tablet pen is tucked into a little hole on the side which makes it hard to lose. The speed of this computer is on par with my A65 at 3GHZ eventhough the GHz rating is only 1.7GHZ! I could go on and on about this great laptop but the one of the best things about it is the look that I get when someone sees me flip the display and fold it down into tablet mode - I always chuckly inside my head! These are the features:
-1.7GHZ centrino processor
-80 GB HD 5400
-DVD ram drive, dual layer, etc...
-removable media bay (for 2nd hd or optical drive)
-Internal SD reader
-3 USB ports
-Built in microphone
-On/off switch for internal 802.11g Wifi
-1 pc card slot
-OneNote button on the side which can be programmed to start a different program
Pros Screen, speed, Battery, DVD Burner, Software Bundle
Cons Weight, and that's not that bad considering the package
Summary This is my fifth Notebook overall and my second Tablet. I bought a first gen. Toshiba Satellite Convertable 3 years ago. Not bad, but lackluster enough to keep me away for a while. After purchasing My R15 in January, as pathetic as it sounds, I can't imagine life without it. Anyone opting for a traditional laptop and not this Tablet should reevaluate their thinking. This machine has it all: speed, Stability fantastic handwriting recognition, durability, 5 hour battery, intuitive controls, and too much more to mention.
this machine is not only exceptional, but an actual bargain for the money.
Pros Love the tablet feature for its versatility
Cons Screen is wobbly when upright, suffers from laptop sound.
Summary Use this thing daily, constantly. I am using it right now to write this review while reclined on my bed. The weight is not an issue with me, possibly because it is the lightest laptop I've owned yet. Love the small details, like the external switch to disable the wireless, and the dedicated button to start One Note. The SD card slot is useful, but I wish it was a multi-card reader. All in all, a great machine that is portable, versitile, and completely useful.
