Toshiba is a multimedia company and their laptops are designed to please your senses with supremely bright and gorgeous displays and decent speakers while still maintaining crisp performance. Toshiba claims to be the first notebook maker with color LCD's, it is easy to believe after seeing the screen in person and their LCD's are consistently beautiful regardless of which Toshiba you pick. GPU performance is anecdotally impressive, I DON'T PRETEND TO BE A GAMER SO ANY IMPRESSIONS ABOUT ITS GAMING PEFORMANCE OR COMPATIBILITIES WOULD BE EASILY DETECTED ATTEMPTS TO b.s., but I did stress it by simultaneously playing two USB connected DVD's and a BluRay and it was excellent without jitter (see the uploaded video review).

Toshiba Satellites are the least expensive Toshiba laptops and their "C" series is the least expensive Satellite, so buying the cheapest Toshiba notebook made results in some immediately noticeable sacrifices such as the creaky flimsy flexing case and an integrated mouse track pad that feels worse than using a floating potato to move the cursor. I hate the flimsy keyboard, it as unpleasant as flossing your gums with sandpaper because the larger keys and chiclet imposter keyboard aren't comparable to someone accustomed to luxurious ThinkPad keyboards but I can't find a ThinkPad/Lenovo comparable to Toshiba horsepower unless I want to spend twice as much.

At least a floating potato is predictable but Toshiba has found some way to smuggle the cheapest Synaptic pads from North Korea since I can't imagine any other country willing to make such an annoying version of a normally reliable input. I've used other trackpads without issue, Synaptics is the largest manufacturer of most TrackPads, but I have never used a Synaptics or any trackpad as misreabl as these are.

I bought this laptop after much research and thought it had the right combination of hardware and software for the price(i bought it from another online store for $318) Well it wasn't long before i regretted the purchase. I can't believe i spent a whole day doing maintenance and tracking down a bad/missing file on the windows website. I looked up its history on its own event logs and found it had been having issues from the time it was produced! It struggles with the most basic of tasks, probably because of the horrendous amount of garbage software from Toshiba. You think im kidding? Log on to the internet and watch where it sends you. The touchpad is one of the worst i have ever tried to use and the plastic used for the body looks and feels like its from recycled material. Please dont buy. If you do, try it out and put it through its paces so you can see for yourself. Just make sure you dont let the return period elapse or you will be stuck with a major headache

Thank you for the review, lcastaneda. Customer feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

I wonder if you could share a little more specific detail regarding the two issues you raised, so we can better understand the exact problems.

Can you tell us the filename of the file which was bad or missing? Also, can you give a bit more detail about what event log you were viewing that had data going back to the time it was produced? That would be very unusual because the Windows installation process doesn't complete until a new computer is unboxed and turned on for the first time -- so that would normally be Day Zero for any activity logs for that particular computer.

Finally, any info about specific symptoms or problems you experienced with the touchpad would be appreciated. I understand that you didn't like the feel of it, but is there anything you can add to that impression that would describe a problem with the functionality.

Thanks again for the review, and for any further details of your experience with the laptop that you might share. If you still have the laptop and would like help troubleshooting any ongoing issues, please call our customer support line at 800-457-7777.

A solid laptop for a really good price.
If you want a computer for surfing and general home or business use you are not going to find this at this price in any store.
Windows 8 is pretty useless on a laptop without a touch screen but is pretty easy to get around so it acts like Windows 7.
Like the built in camera and this laptop weighs less than my old Toshiba.
Dislikes as always is the pre-installed try and then buy crapware that seems to come with every computer ever sold.

I really like my laptop after a couple of months. I'm still trying to decide if I like Win8. The computer boots quickly, it's light and the battery lasts about 6 hrs.

No problems.

Windows 8 is a pain. I wish I could go back to Windows 7! Everything else is ok about it!

I could not believe how fast this laptop was delivered. I ordered it on Wednesday evening and received it on Saturday afternoon. I also love using it. I am still getting familiar with Windows 8 (which being a network designer and installer) I find is just too self contained. By this I mean that Windows 8 not only keeps you as locked out of the install as it can but it also uses the Microsoft Website to install it's Window components. So be prepared to create a account on Microsoft's website because install will not proceed without it. But other than that I have had no problem learning how to get my system configured the way I want and the laptop itself is very fast and slim for better handling. I recommend this brand and model to all.
