"Been running this laptop for 3 yrs, & still using it"4.0 starson by Ruumatsuku
Pros: I'll state the obvious that the "Webcam" works perfectly fine on Skype.
The speed for transferring data is great.
The wireless radar in the network software is really neat especially looking for a network that is not out of range.
Toshiba has some great
Cons: The weight can be a bit heavy, not as heavy as the other bigger models.
I find it overheats but doesn't shut down.
The battery tends to be a bit short (but that could be my own doing lol).
When playing games like "Aion" it tends to lag due to the graphics
Summary: To tell the truth, ever since I've gotten my Toshiba Satellite A305-S6858. I never had any problems with Skype, or anything. I only had to use my recovery disc once when it wouldn't load onto the windows login screen. I never had the extended warranty. I have no idea why everybody doesn't like this computer whats so ever. I've bought my Toshiba at Best Buy. :\ For other computers I wouldn't recommend getting Acer or Dell laptop computers. Those crashed and blue screened on me more. While this Toshiba never blue screened once!i missed out on the 4th line of type under pros. I ment to say "Toshiba has some great features that any college student or any regular computer user can enjoy using."
It would depend where you've purchased this computer, and how it's handled. Once you take care of it, it will last for a long time and will be running perfectly.
