When the laptop freezes you cannot move the mouse for a few minutes, and this happens every time you try to do anything on the computer.

I have used this laptop for a few days and so far I like it. The only problem is Windows as it seems that there is Windows 8 and Windows 7 and they can be used interchangeably.

Pros:
1. Good value.
2. The keyboard, track pad, and the design is very solid.
3. Monitor and picture quality is better than a similar Dell model from a few years ago.
4. Windows 8 is pretty cool with the tiles.
5. You can switch quickly between Windows 7 and 8.
6. Windows Sky Drive is great as it replaces the office.
Cons:
1. A little slower than I would like it to be.
2. Difficult to get to the accessories and tools in Windows 8. There is definitely learning curve.
3. Speaker is poor but this is expected from a laptop.
4. Toshiba loaded it with too many of its own apps, which are not very useful.
5. Internet Explorer 10 has minor browsing issues when logging in to certain web sit
Overall, I am using this laptop as a desktop replacement and it is pretty sturdy and of good quality. I would recommend it to an average user who wants an affordable laptop with built in quality and portability.

Update: December 22, 2012
I added 2GB of memory and performance seems slightly better (Kingston KTT1066D3S/2G RAM Module 2 GB (1 x 2 GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1066MHz DDR31066/PC38500204pin SoDIMM KTT1066D3S/2G). It was easy to unscrew the back where the memory goes but removing the cover was difficult. Luckily the plastic did not break so the quality seems good. Also, I dropped the laptop when it was closed (from 3 feet on the rug) and it is fine. I installed a couple of additional browsers and I am rarely using Windows 8 interface but it is nice to have it as an option and to get familiar with it. Happy with this laptop after two months of use.

Purchased during Black Friday as a Lighting Deal. I knew by the specs it was a 'basic' laptop. I knew immediately I'd be adding memory to this one (which ships with only 2GB of memory - barely enough to open any Windows OS) to make it work for me.

I did a search and found 4GB DDR3 1066MHZ Sodimm-toshib would work wiht this model, and I bought (2) 4GB memory modules, to boost the total memory to 8GB. There are only 2 memory slots, and it's been my experience that when upgrading memory it's best to add two identical pairs.

Adding memory really helped a lot! Browsers (I added Google Chrome and it ships with Explorer 10) opened quickly, and I found no glitchy operations when opening several programs at one time. WiFi speed and processor speed are also factors in overall performance, but memory is the one upgrade that vastly improves a PC's performance and that's cheap and easy to do yourself.

RE: Upgrading Memory
If you don't know how to add memory to a laptop, go to the maker's site and in the Owner's Manual of most there will be a section on how to do it. I've added photos to this product page in hopes of gving you an idea of both what to do, and how easy it is to do so. Don't force parts, and don't touch the contacts that go into the slots - and you should be fine!

The build quality of this laptop is on par with its price. Made in China, most of the fit and finish on the PC feels pretty cheap. It not an overly sturdy build; I noted this while removing the back cover to expose the memory slots. The cover was held in place with one screw and a tad tough to remove.

I purchased this laptop for $240 on Black Friday Week so my review may be bias, since I would have never bought such a low spec'ed laptop otherwise.
Specs:
1x 2gb Samsung m471b5773dh0-ck0 ram @ ddr3 1600 pc12800 cas 11 ( +empty slot) (the website says its 1066 but the dimm is 1600, the imc however is 1066)
AMD E300 APU
Toshiba mk3275gsx HDD
Windows 8 X64
1. Price: Even at $240, I debated weather or not this was a good deal. It is very low end (with a netbook cpu) and made by Toshiba, which isn't the best company out there but then it was cheaper than a Samsung Chromebook so I decided to purchase it. If this was anything higher (ex $300+), I would not have bought it. There are much better laptops out there made by Asus and Acer.
2. Keyboard: As I am typing on it right now, I can tell you the keyboard straight up sucks. Low (almost none) travel make it fell like typing on a piece of plastic with no feeling at all weather or not I actually pressed the key.
3. Speed: I didn't come in with high expectations about the CPU performence but this APU completely sucks in Graphics as well. As an APU, I expected videos to play much more smoothly but 1080p & 720p videos on youtube are extremely choppy, even after updating to 12.10 drivers. WAY underpowered.
4. Display: The display is beautiful on this laptop; much better than I expected. It gets very bright and quite dim.
5. Touchpad: The touchpad is very unresponsive and at times even cuts out. The sides of the touchpad also get dust stuck in them quite often. The click on the buttons is very loud too, but that may be good thing since it sounds reassuring.
6. Feel. The textures of the laptop are great. However, the plastic is the cheapest that I have ever felt yet.
7.
