The price is an advantage. $479.99 for a quad core processor with excellent graphics and all standard features. I did not pay tax or shipping to amazon. This is the best deal I found online for a great processing power, excellent battery life, everyday computing laptop. Did I mention it did not produce any heat? I saved around $20 on a cooling pad!
Just one gripe for me: There is no volume control button on the keyboard.
Quad Core Processor: I bought this laptop for $430 and that is a great, great price for a quad core. I was apprehensive about buying an AMD based machine at first but upon comparing it with an Intel core i3 2350M machine; I found that the A6 is a much better processor.
RADEON HD 6520G: The highlight of this machine is the 6520G GPU. For a low end machine this GPU gives amazing performance. I am casual gamer so buying a machine with a dedicated card wouldn't have been cost effective for me. I was happy to discover that I could play graphics intensive games like Crysis, Crysis 2, Modern Warfare 2 & 3, Battlefield 3 at 1366 x 720 resolution with 30 - 40 fps easily. The Intel HD 3000 sucks at all these games.
The only con was the nasty BIOS bug. I think Toshiba got a batch of faulty BIOSes and some of the laptops are acting up because of that, which is shame really as the performance of this laptop at such a low price point is really nice. But thankfully Amazon came to the rescue here with their wonderful return policy and that is one of the reasons I gave 4 stars and not lower. With such great service, Amazon has a lifetime customer in me.
The laptop is a little heavy...I didn't pay attention to that when I was comparing several different laptops, before the purchase, but I'll get used to it. lol
Windows loaded quickly and now I'm off & running. I love the brightness and crispness of the screen. The laptop is very quick and responsive.
I feel that I've made a great choice in this laptop!
With this purchase, I also got a wireless mouse and a cooling pad. I recommend you do the same, so that when it all arrives, you're all ready to enjoy your new laptop!
Pros: quad core; discrete graphics with HDMI output, which plugs into a TV set; 3 USB ports.
Con: No mechanical volume control.
Special Pro: After I accidentally entered the order with an incorrect Ship To address, Amazon recovered beautifully by shipping a second machine overnight, at no extra charge.
Special Con: The Wi-Fi modem stopped working after a week. I plugged an external modem into a USB port.
It's a very entry level gaming machine in laptop form. Not a good choice for gaming, but excellent for graphics intensive applications such as full screen movies and TV, and AJAX apps like Google Earth.
As with all laptops, you will probably want a separate mouse. The touch pad is easily disabled by pushing a button.
This laptop SURE DOES have keys for volume down and up; FN+3 and FN+4. Looking at them right now.
So. My two weeks with the laptop. Pretty fast for what it is.
Mind you, I DO NOT play games. Angry Birds occasionally, but that's it.
Battery life is GREAT - I get about 3.5 hours actively using it, almost 5 hours not actively using it
Does not get hot at all
Can't think of any cons right now..
Problems - battery at first few starts would NOT charge. I read online and some people complained as hell and cursed Toshiba;
lack of customer support, crappy CS, etc.
What happened is that no matter how long I kept the laptop plugged in, battery still showed 0% and NOT charging.
So I shut it down, removed the battery, booted the computer up (while on charger),
then inserted the battery. Started charging right away. I don't know why this happened,
but this is how I resolved the issue.
I also ditched Win7 immediately, running Ubuntu on it, ETKA, etc., with MS Office 2007 running flawlessly
(2010 kept asking for .NET 4.5, and .NET 4.5 wouldn't install for w/e reason - I was in a hurry and simply slapped 2007 on it).
No complaints at all for the two weeks that I had it.
