I purchased this laptop because of Toshiba's reputation on quality and reliability. When I received it, I was not disappointed. The laptop feels solid and sturdy and runs very smooth. There were not many Toshiba applications pre-installed on the system but did uninstall a few. If you are in the market for a solid, well configured and mid-budget laptop look no further than this system here. Do not get fooled into thinking you need the newest processor and the largest hard drive. The average user would not even notice a difference between the two.

I highly recommend this laptop!

This is a really nice looking laptop. The full size number-pad is awesome. The price is right, and you can't beat Toshiba's laptop quality or durability. Be forewarned, however, that despite what the Toshiba web-page shows, this laptop DOES NOT HAVE an HDMI port! Also: The LAN is only 10/100 - no gigabit! While this isnt the end of the world, these features are included in many other laptops of similar price. For these reasons, I sent this laptop back and purchased an NV55C38u. While not as stylish, the NV55C38u has the missing HDMI port, Gigabit LAN, a larger hard drive, and a few extra USB ports - all for the same price as the Toshiba.

I purchased my Satellite 15 months ago and have loved it until two weeks ago when the 2 USB ports on the right-hand side came loose and fell inside. I took the computer to a repair shop and was told this is a common issue with Toshiba laptops due to the weld Toshiba uses for the ports; they couldn't repair it but could send it in to Toshiba for repair -- at a cost of $400! I contacted Toshiba and was told that since I was 5 months out of warranty, they could repair it, but it would cost me ... $400! If you go online and search for Toshiba USB Port problems, you will find a slew of people that have experienced the same issue with their Toshiba laptops, even current year models. Save your money and purchase a different brand of laptop.

I am not a technical wizard but i bought this laptop for a road trip for work and im using it to type on right now and love it. I have not had any problems with it and for what i paid for it i cannot complain about one thing. Mine definitely has the hdmi port and everything else advertised so i would recommend this to just about anybody. The only thing i can see is it does not have anything great for graphics but i am not too worried about that. Overall Great Deal

I was extremely surprised that I received my new Toshiba in the mail less than a week after I had ordered it. My first laptop that I had ever purchased was a Toshiba and it lasted me almost 7 years before I finally gave up on it. So naturally I looked at a Toshiba for my next laptop. The Toshiba brand, to me, has a reputation for longevity. I had looked at other brands with similar features and costs. I ended up choosing this one because I got more for my money. It is also much much much easier to use than I had ever expected. Keep up the great work Toshiba!!!!

This Toshiba is the best laptop I've owned. I love the fact that it's just as fast as my desktop with great battery life. I'm very pleased with the size and style. I wasn't sure by the description if I was also getting an HDMI output port along with a the great CD/DVD drive. I didn't get the HDMI but am not disapponted. I wouldn't have used the HDMI but am really glad I got the CD/DVD! The drive is also a Blue Ray player, which is a great plus. I'm very pleased with the Toshiba and recommend it for the great quality and price.

This Toshiba laptop is and excellent value for the bargain price. Getting 4GBs of RAM was important but I also like the number pad on the keyboard. The display is excellent and the amount of memory is great. Included is the web cam so Skype has already been used. I recommend this laptop so much that I even bought my wife one.
