We were unsure of Toshiba at first. We have owned three laptops to date and wanted to buy one for my mother-in law to get her off of her outdated desktop pc. She needed the mobility a laptop offers since she cant stay seated at the desk for long periods of time. We have looked at Toshiba before but always ended up buying something else (usually because of a special price we would find on another brand). She started to look for herself to see what she liked and she picked this one because it was red. Sometimes that's not the best reason for purchase but I checked out the specs and what was included in the software package and decided to buy it for her. She couldn't be happier with it. She is somewhat computer literate and has had no problems using all the features. She loves the fact that she can just smile at the screen and it opens up her pages to start working (the included facial recognition feature). Even with her severe arthritis in her hands (her grandchildren jokingly refer to her as "the claw" she uses the laptop just fine. For what we spent and what we received we are very happy so far. If it lasts for two years we will be extremely pleased.
