It's powered by a dual-core AMD E-450 accelerated processor (APU), which combines a CPU and a graphics processing unit (GPU) on a single chip, helping to accelerate daily applications while also delivering lower power consumption. The APU can quickly offload demanding tasks and applications from your CPU to the GPU, enabling you to do more with your computer in less time.

The bright 15.6-inch LCD offers a 720p native high-definition resolution. And thanks to the built-in webcam and Toshiba Face Recognition software on this machine, you'll enjoy a more convenient way to communicate, log on, or share your laptop among the family. Plus, you get plenty of ports and storage to give you the freedom to expand, or hold more files and media.

This Satellite comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (learn more below).

So, this laptop is low priced, but high powered, at least for what I need it to do. I am pretty much like everyone else and just browse the web and check email on this thing and it does the job just fine for that. It is quick and clippy and I absolutely love having a number key pad. My only complaint about this is that it does not have a USB port on the right hand side of the laptop. Why is this important you ask? Mouse. I have a small travel mouse that I usually use with my laptops and with this one, it has to be plugged all the way on the other side of the laptop. It's kind of inconvenient, but not a deal breaker with me.

This would be a great laptop for a kid going off to college or any casual user to just have around the house.

BE WARNED: as with most new laptops these days, this one does not come with installation DVD's. That means that if you get a virus or something, you will not have a way to reinstall Windows. It does however have a method for MAKING a backup. I highly recommend that you do this IMMEDIATELY before using the laptop. When I did it, it required 5 (yes five) blank DVD's, so make sure that you have some on hand. If you skip this step, you will rue the day down the road. The fun part is that the printed instructions are pretty stupid and look to be generic for all Toshiba laptops. To make the backup do the following:

Click Start -> All Programs -> TOSHIBA -> Support & Recovery -> Recovery Media Creator

and follow the instructions from there. The printed instructions tell you to check the help guide on the laptop, does not give directions for finding the help guide, but when you do it does not give the correct location for the program that makes the recovery DVD's

I have had this laptop for 8 months now - I use it every day for work. MS Office 2003 working fine on it. I can even use Adobe Photoshop reasonably well.

Key points:

*Extremely low temperature at about 75-80 degrees - this is truly a "lap top"!
*A little slow for heavy internet graphics
*Sound card is not great, but I play all my music through airtunes to my stereo so I don't care so much
*If you want to record internet audio, you will have problems - this is not the laptop for that use
*Lightweight

If you want a non-nonsense, no-frills laptop for low cost that runs MS Office and can use the internet, I don't know how you can beat this laptop.

I have had mine for a 1 1/2 years and it has been great! No complaints at all. Still holds a good charge on the battery, plenty of memory and I felt like a great system for the price.

This review is meant to help classify the type of person that would enjoy this laptop. If you are a big gamer stop here because this is not a laptop that you would enjoy. If not, please keep reading.

This is what I would call a 'Black Friday Laptop'. Why? The computer is built cheap and the parts are years old. This is the laptop you would give to a kid or better yet a grandma or grandpa who is learning the computer. Still interested? Keep reading.

This is a beginners laptop, here is why.

Product Features

AMD E Series Processor 1.65GHz (1MB Cache)
3GB SO-DIMM RAM

Note: 1.65 GHz and an AMD processor. This is the same type of processor you may find in a Netbook. Low quality. Do not expect to multitask to much. Some light browsing and email checking would be ok. 3GB of ram is low. 4 gb is what the average user even newbies use.

320GB 5400RPM Hard Drive

Note: 320gb? This is very low storage, I would not classify this as a entertainment laptop. 5400rpm also does not help, but for the price is makes sense.

15.6-Inch Screen, AMD Radeon HD 6320

Note: Nice size screen, but do not be fooled by the 'HD' the resolution would not be what you would see on a standard HDTV.

Windows Home Premium, 5.56 hours Battery Life

Note: OS is standard. 5.56 battery life? More like 2.5 to 3.5 hours unless you are just letting it sit there.

Ports and Connectivity

USB Ports: 2
USB 2.0 Ports: 2

Note: this is standard on most laptops, missing new technology of USB 3.0.

Cases and Expandability
Size (LWH): 9.84 inches, 15 inches, 1.5 inches
Weight: 5.5 pounds

Note: This is normal for a 15.6in laptop.

Wireless Type: 802.

I have 2 hp computers, one that is 2 years old. They are faster than this one. I wasn't expecting a super computer for the price. But as it is right now it doesn't really even play a simple app on facebook without slowing up. I hope its just a simple adjustment but I guess I should have researched before purchasing this. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006TI42J2/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title

I haven't encountered a computer this slow since the late 90's. It is very slow and freezes up on both google chrome and explorer browsers. I just needed this laptop to do at home internet surfing. It could not be slower. I returned the computer the next day.

it's my third toshiba, and probably my last. There is a huge difference between families of Toshiba's, and this is the lowest level. Basically, it's made of really cheap plastic. Simply opening the cover eventually caused the plastic to break apart in the back by then power supply and not charge. Talking with the "toshiba" warranty service stated that "damage isn't covered". To send it in for warranty repair (and mine is less than 1 year old) is $129, and if it's not a major repair, add another $125, plus $30 shipping. It's eye opening. If you do get this, get it with a very very good warranty, one that covers "accidental" damage, because you will need to prove that you didn't jar it, or drop it, to get coverage. And that is impossible. Or, just get a better laptop. Laptop
