This product deserves 4.5 stars. It is almost perfect but for the small SSD supplied.

I have used laptops of various sizes, 12" to 15" and now 18.4".

I was looking for a laptop which had a fantastic keyboard (ala "Lenovo") and sufficient GPU power for the latest games. Not that I'm a hardcore gamer but I was looking for a new laptop which could last longer (in terms of obsolescence) as nowadays it is the GPU rather than the CPU which determines whether or not your laptop is capable of running games.

Without further ado, here's the reasons why I bought this unit. No offence to owners of the other brands but I had to eliminate other popular choices due to the reasons below. I actually narrowed down my final choice of a new laptop to either SAGER or TOSHIBA.

PROS
1. Keyboard
A full keyboard (backlit!) is provided along with a full numberpad.

For me, the keyboard design was really important. I have used a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop before and their keyboards were (and still are) really the best for typing.
Yes, even better than this unit.

H/w, this Toshiba unit has the edge over Alienware and SAGER/CLEVO units where the keyboard is concerned. I actually went to a real store to check out the Alienware laptops but just did not like the feel of their keyboards. I also do not like the way SAGER/CLEVO removed some of the keys on their numberpad.

BTW, the MSI GX/GT 660 series deserves honorable mention for their keyboard design. I like the look on it. H/W some reviewers have claimed that there is a certain amount of flex, hence I did not go for the MSI units.

2. Battery Life
Granted, most people would not move a desktop replacement unit around much.

After having to surrender my last laptop back to my company when I was laid off, I went looking for a new laptop and this is what I ended-up purchasing.

Working in the IT industry and having a passion for building computers means that I have to keep abreast of the ever changing hardware scene as well as all of the current offerings from various manufacturers. Having never owned a Toshiba Laptop before this would be my first purchase so naturally I was skeptical at first. I had gone to several vendors and customized computers with around the same level of hardware offerings that come in this Toshiba Unit. I visited Sager, Dell/Alienware, HP, and Asus. The Dell offerings were all very expensive, more than $2,200.00 and up for similarly equipped models and even more for the Alienware units with slightly better options. Next I moved to HP and their offerings were similar with the exception of the several of their video processors which were lesser models. The Sager laptops were the most expensive but offered the greatest flexibility for configuration. In the end for around $1,800.00 the Toshiba was clearly the best value.

Having used an Alienware M15x before which I surrendered back to my former company, the Toshiba had big shoes to fill and fill them it has! I was impressed initially by the sheer size of the unit which is massive. The screen is an absolutely beautiful and crystal clear 1920x1080 with no dead pixels or backlighting consistency problems. The chassis is made of a mirrored black and anodized red finish that is beautiful but naturally attracts a lot of fingerprints and dust so be prepared for this.

this THING IS HUGE! Every time I take it out everyone says "That is a big screen!" Then when I tell them about the SSD and the 6 GB of RAM they go, "Why do you need all that?" Well after throwing a lot of games and software and playing a Blu-Ray and booting up in less than a minute, I say "That's why I have this awesome computer!" As always Amazon was very fast and helpful as the payment method was kind of unusual, but customer service was helpful and I am very Happy!
EDIT: I have been running this laptop everyday since I have received it. It now has several different operating systems on it, several emulators for console games and does a fair amount of browsing. It has performed flawlessly and has never locked up or needed to be restarted. Kubuntu started right up and after loading the Nvidia drivers looks awesome. If you need a giant laptop with top performance don't be afraid. This one is great.

I have used this laptop for about 2 weeks now. Everything works as billed. The startup time is less than 50 sec due to the solid state hard drive. The only negative is the weight but with a computer of this size that is very acceptable. Well worth the money.

For many years, I have not had good experience with Toshiba for work related purposes although many of my colleagues like them alot. I have used and bought extensively with Sager and Dell before at home and work. I have also gotten a high end notebook (over $3000) which I returned (due to broken screw set at the bottom of laptop after I have received it and other issues) and came down to this one. Since I do not want to deal with the Asus key issue (although I have been building PC with their motherboard), I gave this one a try and here is what I found.

PROS:
1. Nice layout and 18.4 is just like the custom built type in the market now
2. Harmon Kardon speakers
3. Windows 7 64 bit
4. The 7200 rpm hard disk protection
5. Backlight keyboard

CONS:
1. Keys are bit cramp with a small trackpad.
2. Webcam is 1.3 MP instead of 2.0 MP as many other high end laptop does.
3. Small 64 GB SSD
4. Windows 7 Home

I am still in the process of downloading and trying to upgrade to Windows 7 PRO/ULITMATE. Will update more if I found the good and bag things more about this computer.

I have just tested the laptop with continuous internet surfing. The battery life is about 2 hours flat. I do find that playing games is a bit difficult as my left pinky and ring finger will accidentally hit the control panel keys on the left side. I am now using an external keyboard to play games instead.
