This would be a great laptop for a kid going off to college or any casual user to just have around the house.
BE WARNED: as with most new laptops these days, this one does not come with installation DVD's. That means that if you get a virus or something, you will not have a way to reinstall Windows. It does however have a method for MAKING a backup. I highly recommend that you do this IMMEDIATELY before using the laptop. When I did it, it required 5 (yes five) blank DVD's, so make sure that you have some on hand. If you skip this step, you will rue the day down the road. The fun part is that the printed instructions are pretty stupid and look to be generic for all Toshiba laptops. To make the backup do the following:
Click Start -> All Programs -> TOSHIBA -> Support & Recovery -> Recovery Media Creator
and follow the instructions from there. The printed instructions tell you to check the help guide on the laptop, does not give directions for finding the help guide, but when you do it does not give the correct location for the program that makes the recovery DVD's
*Extremely low temperature at about 75-80 degrees - this is truly a "lap top"!
*A little slow for heavy internet graphics
*Sound card is not great, but I play all my music through airtunes to my stereo so I don't care so much
*If you want to record internet audio, you will have problems - this is not the laptop for that use
If you want a non-nonsense, no-frills laptop for low cost that runs MS Office and can use the internet, I don't know how you can beat this laptop.
This is what I would call a 'Black Friday Laptop'. Why? The computer is built cheap and the parts are years old. This is the laptop you would give to a kid or better yet a grandma or grandpa who is learning the computer. Still interested? Keep reading.
This is a beginners laptop, here is why.
AMD E Series Processor 1.65GHz (1MB Cache)
3GB SO-DIMM RAM
Note: 1.65 GHz and an AMD processor. This is the same type of processor you may find in a Netbook. Low quality. Do not expect to multitask to much. Some light browsing and email checking would be ok. 3GB of ram is low. 4 gb is what the average user even newbies use.
320GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
Note: 320gb? This is very low storage, I would not classify this as a entertainment laptop. 5400rpm also does not help, but for the price is makes sense.
15.6-Inch Screen, AMD Radeon HD 6320
Note: Nice size screen, but do not be fooled by the 'HD' the resolution would not be what you would see on a standard HDTV.
Windows Home Premium, 5.56 hours Battery Life
Note: OS is standard. 5.56 battery life? More like 2.5 to 3.5 hours unless you are just letting it sit there.
Ports and Connectivity
USB Ports: 2
USB 2.0 Ports: 2
Note: this is standard on most laptops, missing new technology of USB 3.0.
Cases and Expandability
Size (LWH): 9.84 inches, 15 inches, 1.5 inches
Weight: 5.5 pounds
Note: This is normal for a 15.6in laptop.
Wireless Type: 802.Read more ›
