At the time I bought this laptop I didn't know much about computers.
I wanted one I could run any program with or game, I got this model because the processor is really fast and the hard drive is big.
The price is really good for these high numbers, when I brought it home I loaded all my programs on it (word, excel) and games.
The newest ones I loaded are Diablo 3 and Strcraft 2.
The install time was much faster then my older computer the turbo boost really helped.
The only downer is the graphics card, I have to run these two games on low graphics otherwise it is way to choppy. I found out because the graphics card is integrated, I didn't know what that was tell after I purchased the laptop.

So if you are a person that uses a laptop like 60% work, 40% movies and music and 10% games this laptop is for you.

I bought this computer from Office Deopt at the beginning of August when they had an instant rebate on it for $699. The first one I got home with had numerous pixels stuck white, so I exchanged it for another. The second also had a single stuck pixel, so I made another trip to the store. This time I tried the 3rd. one out at the store before I left, and the screen was great.

I'm very pleased with this system. The i7 processor is very fast, and the system is pretty responsive, except for the slow HD (only 5400rpm). The graphics are the HD4000 version of the Intell intergrated graphic chipset (part of the Ivory Gate 3rd. Generation chipset) are now DirectX 11 compliant, and works quite well. You won't be playing games at high detail levels, but it works with a lot of them very well at reduced settings. I have been using it with Adobe Creative Suite CS 5.5, and it performs quite well.

I've only had it for a few weeks, so I hope it holds up well over time (it's the first Toshiba I've owned). There is a lot of bloatware that can be uninstalled which seem to speed up point.

My wife bought the i5 version of this laptop and it was perfect out of the box.

The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is due to having 2 factory sealed units with bad screens in a row. It made me question their quality control.

UPDATE 1/16/13: It's been 5 months now, and I'm still very happy with this laptop. I upgraded to Adobe CS6 Suite and it runs great. Even added a Wacom Bamboo Tablet. Was planing on upgrading the memory to 16 Gb but it uses 2 4 Gb sticks instead of one 8, and I would have to replace all the memory, so I figure I'll wait until I need the RAM an upgrade then. Also after seeing Windows 8, I'm glad to have bought this when Windows 7 was still shipping. If I wanted a Surface Tablet, I would have got one over a laptop.

Verified Purchase
This is an extremely good computer for the price. I have recommended this computer to all my friends that are looking for computers. The Intel HD 4000 is Intel's best iGPU and can even run games like Skyrim. The 3rd Gen Processor is wicked fast too. If you are looking for a gaming laptop, don't buy this. If you want a computer to do basic tasks and some complicated ones that will last for a while (4 years at least), this is the computer you are looking for. You can't go wrong with an i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM.

I have had 3 Toshiba Laptops, the first purchased in 1998 (Still have it and it will probably still power up). My last was an A205-S4707 I bought in 2007 for $750. It is still in operation but with Vista on it I was never truly happy with it because there were lots of compatibility issues with software and it always seemed to run slow. The battery and power cord/transformer gave out after four years but they were easily replaced.

I spent way too much time researching and reading reviews to buy a new replacement and I'd decided that A Samsung or ASUS would be my next Laptop. I really wanted to get as strong a processor as possible but at low cost. Right as I was about to buy the Samsung a big box office store advertised this Toshiba at a loss leader price so I reconsidered the old faithful Toshiba again. It was almost $200 less than the Samsung and had more upgradable RAM, accessories and modern features. I've had the laptop about 2 months now and I don't regret the choice.

What I like: The boot up and operation is lightning fast. Programs run easily and the screen resolution is good. The brushed aluminum styling looks and feels nice and it can do most anything I need it to.

What I don't like: This thing is big. With a 9 key numerical keyboard to the right of the alpha keyboard, there is an extra 3.5 inches in width.

I bought this laptop as an alternative to a desktop so I easily accept the jumbo width. I'm a middle aged finance guy who runs spreadsheets, word documents and is constantly using email and the web. Due to the integrated video card, this is not the computer for the heavy gamer or high def video fanatic.

I bought this computer for my daughter just over 3 months ago through Staples online after a lot of research. She loved the speed, graphics and used it for some photo editing with Light Room, and Microsoft Office. She left for college about a month ago. The computer just crashed this evening. She called Toshiba and was told there was a known issue with the software that makes the computer crash. The tech she talked to told her the warranty was only good for 90 days and if she wanted them to fix it, he had gotten special permission from his manager to offer her the extended warranty through Toshiba for 2 years, but it would cost $300 and she had to make a decision tonight, or no deal. I am extremely angry about this. I read the entire warranty out of the box and it says a one year warranty for the entire computer. She tried a system restore and it did not work. She has only loaded one or two software programs on the computer since it was new, and nothing in the last couple months. It also has Norton Anti-virus on it. I have purchased two other Toshiba laptops in the past that lasted for 3 years plus that were lower end than this one. If Toshiba doesn't take care of this problem without charging us, I will never buy one again. I would also highly recommend anyone else considering one to spend your money elsewhere. Toshiba needs to stand behind it's products!.
