I wanted a machine that could not only handle regular internet browsing and netflix, but also some light gaming. The AMD 7670m is a higher-level budget card, and seems to do OK with the games that I play. So, between hardware offerings and price, I settled on this machine. I returned the first one because the battery wouldn't take a charge (of course, Amazon.com took care of me immediately!) The second one arrived 2 days later. Same issue! I called Toshiba to see if I might have been missing something. They said "Your laptop seems to be perfectly fine. We'll send you a replacement battery." Two bad ones in a row seemed fishy. I sent it back to Amazon and went with an ASUS.

This replaces a laptop that was stolen, but the performance of this Toshiba is hands down better than the Samsung I had previously. I was cautious about other reviews that said the laptop runs hot, but I have not had that issue. Love the look and feel and the keyboard/keypad is very comfortable for typing. No issues so far over the past month of ownership.
