"Best bang for buck laptop--period."5.0 starson by thompsondarryl
Pros: Extremely fast & reliable notebook, clean OS, only necessary software installed. Excellent value, everything you'll ever need in a notebook. Great gamer too with discreet fast graphics GPU, has better frame rates my 4x the price Dell M90 notebook.
Cons: Glossy keyboard smudges up real easy and needs constant cleaning to wipe off your fingerprints. The 9 cell battery sticks out the bottom, a good table rest and hand carrying add-on grip, but the thin bump is not comfortable when on your lap.
Summary: I can't fault this laptop for its price. I have been building and using computers for 30 years now, laptops for the past 8 and nothing in its price range comes close to beating this notebook feature for feature. Not Apple, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Gateway. I owned a Toshiba a few years back and boy was it reliable. I strayed for a few years to Dell and HP notebooks, but both were plagued with reliability issues. Toshiba is a great brand with very good reliability. Here is a stylish notebook that is not lacking in any bells and whistles all for $750! I priced a similarly configured Dell and HP notebook and would have had to pay $1400 or nearly twice the price to equal this notebook from Toshiba. High praise indeed. It is fast and a joy to use. My kids now don't want to use my HP or Dell notebooks. They fight to use this new Toshiba. High praise indeed from very discerning consumers.
