This Laptop is everything you would expect It to be. Giving that your expectations are good. I've read some reviews and everyone seemed to hate this laptop. I love it, I've had it for maybe a week now and nothing has gone wrong so far.

Pros:
. Beautiful Operating System (Windows 8), So fluid and fast
. The 2GB RAM is not bad at all
. Stunning Graphics on the Start Menu (Tiles)
. Lots of apps, makes it feel like a really big tablet(Not a TOUCH SCREEN!)

Cons:
. Only one, The gaming capabilities for games such as runescape and World of Warcraft is not great, works, but is not al that due to the 1.3 Ghz processor

We got this for our middle-schooler as her first laptop & it's just right for her. And it was just right for our budget!

I got this laptop really cheap at best buy ($242.99). It was brand new on clearance. I did not accept EULA for Windows 8, instead installed Fedora Linux on it. Works great except for the wireless card. I think I can get it working with ndiswrapper. It needs more memory and that's about it. The speakers aren't loud but if I normalize the volume or use head phones, they are acceptable.

My key requirements are:

1. I want to run Linux, not Windows
2. I don't want to play games on it (I have an Ultimate Gaming Machine {UGM} desktop)
3. Perfect for surfing the web and watching movies

If I could get the wireless to work, I will be golden.

--------------

Update (21 February 2013): Wireless works out of the box with Fedora 18. The kernel packaged with Fedora 14 did not support wireless.

As the title states, this machine spends most of its time rebooting. I find myself using my old laptop more than this new one. Check emails, computer crash. Download something, computer crash. Let it sit there for hours, computer crash. This is a fresh install and is very frustrating. But don't get me wrong. When it runs it runs great for a Low End Laptop. Just not worth the stress. Save yourself the Stress and time and pay a little more for one with a faster CPU.

Nice screen, but sound is not what I expected! I have always trusted on Toshiba which is excellent, but this laptop is definitely opposite to Toshiba's quality: painfully slow and audio is stressful. DO NOT buy this computer. You have been warned!

Happy with it. The only thing is that I use external speakers because the sound isn't great. In regards to the crashing, switching to 8.1 solved the problem.
