I've only had this laptop for 4 days, but I haven't had any problems so far! It's silent and doesn't get hot at all. Downloads are really fast, and I can play games with no lagging at all. This laptop doesn't come with a cd/dvd drive, but I just bought an external one and it works perfectly fine. This is such a quality laptop for the price! The keyboard is really nice, and even had a number pad, which isn't very common in affordable laptops. The only con I have is that when you click on the mouse pad, it's quite loud. Other than that, I'm extremely pleased.
To read one of the other reviews one would think the reviewer is talking about a completely different machine. My family has two of these and we have experienced none of the problems that the other reviewer has mentioned. XP is a very stable platform and we'll see if Windows Seven will live up to the hype. As far as poor sound I wonder compared to what? I've had several different laptops and netbooks and they sound tinny compared to the D620. Besides, I hook the machine up to external powered speakers to listen to my music library. Let's face it. If Dell built poor quality equipment they wouldn't be in business as long as they have been. This is one great piece of equipment.[[ASIN:B001U5617K DELL LATITUDE D620 14.1" WXGA]]
"Just purchased this computer today for $249.99 from Best Buy." - By Patrick F.
Excellent computer!!. This is my second unit. I purchased one (C55A5300) for my wife on Cyber Monday. This unit (C55A5105) which I purchased today from Best Buy is essentially the same specs. It's a great low-mid range computer that handles the basics without any issues. My daughter streams Netflix and Youtube constantly on this machine. It doesn't come with any Microsoft software preloaded, so don't expect any. I downloaded OpenOffice which is a completely free alternative to Microsoft Office. I waited just for Best Buy to have another under $250 computer, and viola here it is!.... but they sell out fast!
I should also mention that these Toshiba units are exclusively built for and sold through Best Buy. I find it hilarious when I see the 3rd party sellers selling these Best Buy units for huge mark ups. Get it from Best Buy!...$249.99 all day long.
"Crappy audio can be improved easily with Toshiba App" - By Cory Hamrick
Improve the audio by opening the Desktop Assist - then click on Media and Entertainment - then Audio Enhancement - move the setting far to the left to 'voice enhancement'. Then go to the DTS tab and click on the 'bass boost' and with external speakers it don't sound too bad! I was about to return this I found this out. Big Improvement!
Well yes! I made fun of the new HP Chromebook 14 (in Coral Peach, Turquoise and Snow White) when I first saw it. The new HP Chromebook line comes in pastel colors that they seemed perfect for a child’s bedroom. However when you take this beast for a spin, you may become inclined to paint the walls to match.
This isn’t my first Chromebook. I own a slate grey Acer C710 with a 11 inch screen. It was hard on these old eyes of mine and I kept pumping-up the screen size to adjust. This Chromebook’s 14 inch display is just right. HP is known for it’s build quality and the HP Chromebook 14 doesn’t disappoint: excellent quality keyboard, speakers and an array of side port options such as two USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 an HDMI port and an SD card slot for additional memory - Google ... full review
Pay attention to the other reviews about doing "Custom Setup" the first time you turn on the computer. Choose a time when you are not rushed to do a proper setup and you'll prevent trouble appearing later. Go ahead and setup a Microsoft account at Live.com now to get ready to take advantage of all Windows 8.1 and a Cloud has to offer. It will save a lot of time during computer setup if you already have an account, and you don't need a new e-mail address. You can now get a Microsoft account using any existing e-mail account, including Gmail, Yahoo, local ISP, or your own website's mail. Windows 8.1 takes some getting used to, but if you are a Windows user and have used a touchscreen such as an Android device before, it will be a breeze. If you're one of those still holding on to Windows 95/98/2000 ... full review
I bought this as an extra computer to have around the house. The biggest weakness is the inability to print unless your using a google cloudprint enabled printer. If you want to have an extra computer for the kids or guests to use, one that can't get messed up (no viruses, no settings to change), and you only want to spend $200 this is a good product.
I'm based in the UK and bought my unit there. However, physically this model is nearly identical to ours (to my knowledge only the keyboard layout and socket you need for charging it differs) and I've been using Chrome OS and previous Chrome hardware for a while, so I thought I'd give my take on this device.
I've owned the Cr-48 for a while, which was a kind of test unit Google sent out to people to beta test the operating system. That came out a long time ago and none of the commercial units have felt good enough to me to justify buying, up until now. They were always a little too expensive, despite the obvious advantages.
This will be a long review. For those wanting a short summary, I'll include one at the end.
For those unclear, Chrome OS (which the Chromebook ... full review
"Excellent Laptop for the Price." - By Diablo2k (Kansas City, MO, USA)
I'm not going to rehash what all the other four and five star reviews have said as the reviews are right on. I am going to comment on a couple things I wish I had known before buying this laptop.
1. The display has a very limited vertical viewing angle, you must position the display just right or you will see either strange coloration in the blacks, or a washed out white tint to the display.
2. There is only one socket for the memory, and I am unsure if a 8gb stick of ram will work or not. This isn't a big problem for me as I am not noticing any problems with the stock 4gb of memory. System seems fast and crisp with little to no lag.
For the price of this laptop I cant really complain about these two items. It is overall an ... full review
