4.0 out of 5 stars Nice laptop, horrible OS, December 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Satellite S855-S5379 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.40 GHz Intel Core i7-3630QM Processor, 6GB DDR3, 640GB HDD, Windows 8) Ice Blue Brushed Aluminum (Personal Computers)
Pros:
Very pretty laptop and well-built
The keyboard doesn't make any noise, which is good for fast typers
Numeric keyboard
Extremely fast
Toshiba has a very good customer service team

Cons:
Windows 8 has been horrible to deal with. This laptop doesn't have 2 months with me and I already had to do a PC refresh, a call to customer service because of W8 not recognizing the DVD drive, a bunch of uninstall/installs. I am considering changing back to Windows 7.

In general, the laptop itself is amazing. However, if you don't feel that comfortable with computers or Windows 8, ask for a downgrade or just another operating system. I have no problems with the laptop, just with the fact that it came only in WIndows 8 when I bought it.
