Summary: I bought this laptop a year ago. Four months after buying it, the CCFL inverter board died on me. I'm a college student and if was going to take at least half a month to have the laptop fixed, which could have easily been done without having to ship it to Timbuktu and back. In addition, I had to turn over all of my passwords to login to the laptop. I couldn't pull the hard drive either. Eventually, I splurged on a 1TB external hard drive, backed everything up, and shredded the hard drive with DBAN and sent it in. Got it back three weeks later.
For the last several months, the laptop has been overheating and idling around 90C. Toshiba refused to service it under warranty. I recently started working for a local computer repair company and we recently became a certified Toshiba service center, so I tore apart the laptop, cleaned out the side vent and the fan, and put some Article Silver on the CPU and chipset. There wasn't much on either to begin with. Now it's idling around 55C - 60C while sitting on the desk.
