For the price this is a great laptop! So far so good. I got it up and running out of the box in no time. The speed of the computer seems pretty good, haven't run any extremely resource heavy stuff yet-I will later, Ill update in a few months. A few pros and cons for you:

VERY LIGHT! I'm surprised that with the size of this, it is not heavy at all.

Beautiful Screen- The colors and video look great!

Pretty good battery life-I watched a full movie on one charge, and a few hours of regular internet surfing and work.

Pretty thin-for the price, I thought Toshiba would put this hardware in a clunky package... I was wrong.

Stays cool-my last laptop got pretty hot, especially when burning CD's or other heavy stuff- this one barely gets warm!

Keys on the keyboard- What you think you'd see on a kids laptop, plasticy and clunky. C'mon Toshiba-is it that much more expensive to put somewhat nice keys on this thing?

Speakers-terrible.... perhaps I was spoiled by my last laptop-they are almost handheld radio quality.

Other than that, I'm pretty happy with this purchase. Also considering this price, it really cant be beat (If you don't mind the cons).

**********UPDATE*********** MAR 2011

I am still pleased with the laptop. No major performance issues yet.

However, I have another con that I MUST add. Quite frankly I am disappointed that Toshiba, who are not exactly novices in the laptop field, would do this. There are NO USB ports on the right side. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you want to use a mouse (not everybody likes the touch pad), you have to buy one with a long cord, or a wireless mouse.

There are two ways to judge this laptop; first relative to its competition as an entry level laptop that is basically the first step above a netbook, secondly relative to its price value.

Listed here at $396 the verdict on price value is easy-- wait and shop around. There are a host of laptops one step above this (athlon II dual core/3 gig ram/3 usb) that can be had in the $350-$400 range with just a little shopping around.

Now flip the context to entry-level value and the tale becomes a bit more interesting. My impressions of this are still somewhat brief as I am using it essentially as a loaner so I'd have something at my apt. while my regular laptop is in the process of being replaced due to faulty hardware. Judging it from the price range my parents found this at (289.99) this holds up much better.

The hardware is very basic, a 2GHZ single-core Intel Celeron processor with 2 gigs of RAM, 250 Gig Hard drive, 2 USB ports, and that's about it. It does have a few luxuries however that make it quite nice in the basic laptop department.

1.LED+low power processor+ only 2 gigs of RAM= Solid battery life. I have not taken this to the duration of the battery, but after about an hour of browsing the internet on battery alone without lowering display brightness or taking any other power-conserving steps the machine still had an estimated 4 hours of battery life remaining. The low power usage also means this machine has so far ran extremely cool compared to the two other laptops I've owned.

2.Nice keyboard-- My first laptop was an older Toshiba Satellite that served me well for about two years but had a somewhat cramped-feeling keyboard considering it had a 15.4'' display and 10-key.

Bought this laptop at bestbuy in store, paid 349 plus tax. Brought it home pluged in and charged battery, inserted my cd from our existing router, and it basically set itself up to pick up router. Set up a couple usernames for family members and off we went to the internet, without a hitch, cheap and easy to operate, so far. We have a nice desktop dell in downstairs family room but was gettin old to run down and check something out fast, downstairs. So we were lookin for something decent size screen, fast speed, ,easy to operate and setup, we can have some portability around the house. This is a nice laptop so far, kids 8 & 11 have found it easy to operate and can keep an eye on what they are into, when it is in the kitchen. So far so good, cheap, easy to operate and portable, just what we wanted.

I decided to get this @bestbuy after helping my mom shop for a laptop for my brother before Christmas. Works great for everyday computing/school and video converting. Was disappointed in volume loudness so I did some snooping and found a fix.
Right click on the speaker icon in the lower right area of the taskbar. (next to the power and internet connection icon)
Click "Playback Devices",
Click on "Speakers" to highlight it,
Then click "Properties"
Then the "Enhancements" Tab
Then check "Loudness Equalization"
then Apply and OK
Worked for me and increased volume to a much better level.

Hope that helps those that this issue annoys.
Overall the best laptop for the price ($299) once the loudness issue is addressed.
Webcam and mic would have been nice but I usually never use the webcam on my desktop. I have a "Sony Electret Condenser microphone ECM-DS70P" I bought off eBay for 99 cents+ shipping that works awesome with Google Voice when plugged into the mic input. Easy fix that is small and portable.

What's great about it: Low price, Toshiba/Japanese reliability, Fast, Widescreen
What's not so great: Webcam and mic would have been nice but not needed.
