Pros Cute looking piece.
Thats why I bought it for my wife.
Cons I agree with the other reviewer.
This piece heats up like hell and then shuts down in 1 hour.
All the pads at bottom and on the screen have melted away
Summary Do not buy it!
Pros Got it for cheap.
Cons -Heats up quickly causing everything to lag
-Only 3 USB ports
-No HDMI port
-Volume dial always breaks
Summary This is my second but last Toshiba laptop I will be using. With both Toshiba laptops, the dial for volume stopped working after a couple weeks. Both laptops had overheating issues. Go with another company, such as Dell, who have slightly better reliability.
Pros great size for traveling, great looks, powerful, screen and image amazing
Cons heats up a bit, wehn running certain programs, not the best quality, things may break after to much use
Summary my sister got this laptop for college, when she was done she decided she wanted a more expensive lap top so she passed it on to me. i have not used it all that much my self but she has hundreds of hours of use on this laptop and it still works great! this laptop is a great laptop.
Pros light, easy to carry
Cons heats up fast, keyboard impossible to keep clean (catches dust, dirt, grease), shoddy construction, bad battery life
Summary I bought this laptop for law school - it was considerably smaller and lighter than my old laptop, and I liked the look of it. I knew it wasn't the best thing out there, but it fit in my budget.
I've now been using it about a year, and I would tell anyone to NOT buy this. Performance-wise it's fine - all the regular problems you would expect with Vista. The big problem I have is that it's built VERY poorly. I'm not rough on my laptop - I only use it for school, and it's basically lives in the cushion pack I store it in.
Because it heats up so bad, the little cushion pads on the bottom (to keep it from skipping) and around the screen (so the screen won't touch the keyboard) have all melted off - I have a pile of them on my bookcase, but I haven't been able to find a way to get them to re-attach. My left arrow key has fallen off, which is too annoying to describe. This morning, when I was closing it after shutting down, the left hinge snapped.
I've had this computer a year, and it is in worse physical shape than my old laptop that I carried all over Europe and dropped numerous times. Even though it's probably about 5 years old now, I'm thinking I might go back to using that one, just because it's not falling apart.
Do Not Buy This Piece of Junk
"Great for business"on by alienn8
Webcam and Mic built-in
Fast enough for a Work related function
Cons Keyboard catches a lot of oil
Heats up considerably (fixed with a fan)
Battery life is awful
Summary Overall, a great laptop despite its drawbacks. It really depends on what you want to do. I use this for business... opening word, adobe, excel, etc. But if you want to play games, stay away from this laptop. It's average at best.
This laptop is exactly what I'm looking for... nice display, quick enough for business programs, light and compact. Can't really ask for anything more. Plus, this thing sells for around 600 brand new! Just have to look around.
