Received as a gift for Christmas from my wife. Our old laptop was getting pretty gritty. I think the Toshiba was a steal. The Windows 7 was a particularly nice surprise. Both our desctops are Vista. Win 7 cooks and required zip transition time. The intent was to use it (as we did our old one) almost exclusively for travel, but it is so much more powerful than our desktops and has more memory/storage that it's a shame to leae it in the suitcase. If only that bloody battery would hold up for more than an hour or two.

I have had no problems with this laptop. I use all programs without any trouble. It's built to least, very sturdy. The material is easy to wipe and least likely to scratch. Big keyboard is a plus when you are in college. The only thing, to my preference, is the laptop low volume. However, I have a jWIN amplifier with speakers, and it sounds fearless! Overall, this is a very good laptop.

Very good laptop, but even in eco-mode, has at most 1.5 hrs of battery-life.

I have owned many computers in my life. The Toshiba Satellite laptop I purchased far exceeds the previous desktops and laptops I have owned. I spent alot of time and energy researching my next computer and the Toshiba brand kept popping up. I decided to purchase and I am not sorry that I did.
