"Really cheap plastic feel and design. Poor product"0.5 starson by MeChBa
Pros: Has 3 standards that the other don't. SD Card, Ethernet and backlit Keyboard.
Cons: 1) Not 8 hours as advertised. maybe 4.
2) Machine is cheap and plastic, things will break (keyboard, a/c adapter port)
3) Toshiba Support (terrible)
4) i3 super slow
5) No Bluetooth. you will need to dish out like $300 more for some premium model.
Summary: I feel bad for the previous comment, but they are right, if you think the DMV (department of Motor Vehicles) is a trip to Hell, try Toshiba Customer Support.1) I never mentioned anything about its size and its weight. When you mention "slime" I think you mean slim. but you may have been subconsciously saying something there. So have of your comment was based on size.
Toshiba needs to grow up.
Go with the new Samsung Ultrabook (new ones coming out this month are gorgeous), or consider the HP Folio. BTW, Dell has online chat that makes fixing things a breeze, their Ultrabook does not have SD or Ethernet (neither does the MacBook Air). So if you don't need SD and Ethernet, that's a great option.

2) With regards to the material of the product. I will check back at this post for the next short while and will email pictures of the "very advanced material" with "superior resistance" cracked. Provide and email and I will send pics.
3) Battery life. Don't take my word. Go to Engadget's website and search z835. Everyone can agree that you will not get anywhere near 9 hours.
4) And finally, this wasn't a personal attack against you unless you work for Toshiba. In that case, the immature way you reacted makes sense. See my original post, "Toshiba needs to grow up".
