I love the new computer. I has everything I need. I just wanted to let people know that this model is actually the 8100x and it has a resolution of 1680 x 945 not the advertised (at this time) 1920 x 1080. Amazon did offer me a 10% discount on the product because of this so I am happy with it.

After my old Compaq laptop died, I decided I wanted something not only to get online and surf with, but also to play games. I also needed a laptop that had either a built-in firewire 1394 port, or an ExpressCard slot so I could add one. This laptop has both! It took me a while to find this one, because it is a slightly older model now, and all the replacements have neither a firewire OR an ExpressCard slot.

I've played Fallout New Vegas, as well as Skyrim on this laptop, both at ultra-high detail settings, and they both just look gorgeous, with no issues! I also used "PowerDirector" to transfer home videos off of my Sony DV Camcorder, and then edit the videos and produce them and/or burn to DVD. I also use Google SketchUp on this, and no matter now many objects are on the screen, it never slows down or has any issues.

My only "complaints" about this laptop are the size of the power brick (it is huge) and the red highlights on the case. But those are just personal taste quibbles.

I have had the laptop over a month now, and used it extensively over the holidays. Zero problems, and I am very happy with my purchase.

If you have no need of firewire and/or ExpressCard slots, then I'm sure one of the replacements for this model would be excellent as well.

I own this laptop from another company first off. So I cannot speak for shipping quality. But this is beyond the best laptop I have had.

Pro's
-Nice and sturdy
-Huge screen
-Hard drive reseats itself when you tilt it (For protection against damage to the hard-drive)
-Grade A speakers
-Sleek look
-Not too many technical problems.
-Sick graphics and smooth gaming.

Cons
-This baby is a bit on the heavy side. But You can't comprimise the security for weight.
-The outer coating of the laptop is high gloss so you will have to clean it a good amount. (Mess just shows more on it)

Overall, I have had this laptop for about a year and a half now. Never had a problem with it.
I would strongly recommend this to anyone who likes GAMING and graphic using software

Pro's:
Big Screen
Sturdy
The red color makes this laptop look awesome
Speakers give me chills every time I hear them, they are that good

Con's:
It is a huge laptop, so if you are planning to take it places you will need a custom backpack or carrying case (I wholeheartedly suggest this backpack Toshiba PA1453U-1BG8 18.4 inches Gaming Backpack)
Side touch controls can get in the way sometimes
Smaller keyboard takes time to get used to
Very heavy
Attracts fingerprints like mad

I love this laptop and am very, very happy I purchased it.

this has to be the largest and heaviest "laptop" I've ever seen or handled. that's the downside. well, there's one more downside and that is the hotkeys that Toshiba put to the left of the keyboard are entirely too easy to accidentally hit and then change settings unintentionally.

Other than the size/weight and hotkeys, no complaints and really, the size can't be considered a complaint since I got this monster specifically for gaming and performance. from that perspective, it does VERY well. great graphics and great FPS due to the nVidia discreet video card. overall, this thing is every bit as fast as most high end gaming desktops I've played with.

good features overall and great performance - just be aware that it is large and heavy!

I'm a big gamer so I'm to please in terms of gaming laptops. This one is prefect! The screen is HUGE! You will absolutely love it. The finish also makes this laptop look great. Big keyboard and all the function keys so great for using shortcuts.

Screen resolution is awesome, and graphics are great. Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews about a "misleading screen resolution." That was a mistake in the item description that Amazon has now fixed: "1080i high-definition 18.4-inch TruBrite display with 1680 x 945 resolution for amazing color depth and clarity." <<< That's correct!

Only con I'd say is the weight... but I hardly ever move around the laptop so not a big deal to me. 5 stars!
