"basic machine with good specs but many flaws"2.5 starson by mostlyjunk
Pros: I like it has lots of ram and cpu power. The screen is great, the sound is okay. The touchpad is nice.
Cons: After only 1 month of light use the power plug is already loose and wobbly. The DVD drive opens too easily (brush your hand by it and it slides open). The drive also is situated right by the power cord making awkward opening.
Summary: It came with Vista and a bunch of bloat like Norton which slowed the laptop down a lot. Best Buy wanted $30 to REMOVE all this stuff (they call it optimization). Vista was broken out of the box and Windows Explorer would frequently not respond. The DVD drive is glitchy. I expect some possibly problems with this machine since it looks like Toshiba discontinued it really quickly. It was only $500 at Best Buy which was a good deal for the Cpu power and RAM and hard drive space. I gave this 2.5 stars because it seems like it is going to be another one of those fabulous computers that is designed to be obsolete in a few years and break after 4 or 5 years. However, it mostly works and does have everything you need to do basic surfing and watching and writing these days.
