    the free downloads expired before Xmas and it was a Christmas gift so we missed out on the free downloads. That does not seem quite fair don't you think?

    Great Computer

    |
    Posted .

    I own this computer for a month and not had a problem out of it. When I purchase this computer, I also purchase a Samsung 840 EVO 250gb SSD Drive and 8gb to upgrade this computer It had 6gb from the factory, I remove the 2gb stick and install the 8gb for a total of 12gb. Now boot time is 3 seconds. And all the programs opens in a flash. And the HD screen is a real bonus, really excellent picture when streaming Netflix or watching Youtube. For the money you really can't go wrong when you buy this computer.

    A great upgrade from my last Toshiba

    |
    Posted .

    Toshiba has been my go-to brand for a few years now. This notebook, once again, doesn't disappoint. There is a lot to talk about here so I'll try to limit to the more relevant bits. Pros: -Beautiful screen. This is the first time I've used an HD display on a laptop and I'll never go back. The colors tend to be very vivid and bright. -Backlit keyboard. Another first for me and it's amazing how quickly you begin to rely on it. -Battery. Again, I could just be showing my age because I know all notebooks have shown improvements. But my last notebook only lasted about 2 hours doing simple tasks. This one gets about that much playing games and even more doing web browsing or word processing. -Touchscreen. I got the touchscreen version of this notebook because it was on sale. It wasn't so much of a selling point for me, but it turned out to be super useful. Many times, even with a mouse, it's much easier to just tap the icons/items on the screen. Cons: -Screen brightness/glare. Two problems here. I hope to eliminate the glare by getting an anti-glare screen protector. I just wish it wasn't necessary (and I hope it doesn't wash out the pretty crisp HD-ness...). Couple the glare with the fact that the screen just doesn't get very bright and it can be difficult (sometimes impossible) to do certain activities in bright room. -Screen dimming. This may just be me, but I swear the screen dims and brightens based on what is being displayed. I read this might be an adaptive contrast feature but I can't figure out how to turn it off. It makes it really annoying if, for example, you're playing a game and you go into a cave. Suddenly, the screen dims just a bit. Now I'm fighting a dimming screen on an already dim screen with glare. -Wild Tangent Games. This abomination came with the laptop. Normally I don't mention software since you can just uninstall it if you don't want it. However, WT Games was so deep into the computer, I actually had to edit the registry to get rid of the shortcuts on the Start menu. Simply uninstalling didn't work. A few extra notes: If you are afraid of Windows 8.1, then stay away, obviously. I really liked Win8.1 (I manually installed it on my last laptop) and it's even nicer on a touchscreen. I can play World of Warcraft and a few other games. You won't get Ultra settings out of this laptop, but it will survive quite nicely on low-medium settings (maybe a few settings higher if you like tweaking).

    good laptop for business

    Posted .

    Nice laptop, easy to use except when it came to Windows 8. We generate a lot of documents and use e-mails extensively. It is wonderfully quick on both accounts, lots of storage. Also, easy to haul around because it is so much lighter than our last laptop.

    Nice laptop, good value

    Posted .

    I'd been looking for a reasonably light and modestly priced 14" laptop with HDMI output. Browsing at Best Buy this fit the bill. When it went on sale I snapped one up. The machine is good looking, light and compact. The power supply is tiny, which is great - some light laptops have boat anchor power supplies. The screen is clear and sharp. Keyboard has a nice feel, with a decent keystroke travel. Battery life seems to be up to the advertised 7 1/2 hours. The USB 2.0 port, in addition to the two 3.0 ports, is more useful than I had imagined it would be. Nice big hard drive. Starts up in about 15 seconds, which is by far the fastest I've ever had a Windows computer start. Windows 8 took a little getting used to, but all was well after I installed Classic Shell and got an XP-like interface going. Set up a command prompt to my liking, installed my Fortran compiler, and I'm in business. Best Buy's deal of bundling webroot anti-virus was a big plus. It has good reviews and is very unobtrusive. I was able to nuke the Toshiba-supplied Norton stuff before it had a chance to annoy me. The only negative is the touchpad. The rough surface was making me think I made a mistake. I was able to fix that by cutting a piece of screen protector to size and sticking it on. The pad now has a smooth surface and works really well. I enjoy the gestures, especially the two finger scroll. I took one star off my rating because it did aggravate me until I figured out the fix. Overall, I'm very happy with this laptop.

    Best Value if it lasts

    Posted .

    I reviewed almost every laptop at two best buys and other competing stores. I believe it's important to touch and feel for yourself a laptop. For the price, this is one of the best values, the unit has all of the latest features, above average components and is above average in perceived quality. I immediately went out and replace the hard disk with a Toshiba SSD (for a very reasonable price) and the unit is now comparable to other laptops costing maybe 500-700 more in price. To me a high resolution screen is important for crisp text and graphics (at least Full HD) is very important especially on a screen that is 15plus inches. I would have liked to have seen this same laptop in 15.6 screen size with the Full HD (1920x1080) screen. However, I am quite happy with the 14 inch screen. Battery life and form factor are quite nice (relatively thin and light and runs cool). I was getting tired of purchasing so called business class laptops over the past 8 years (at nearly $2000 average price) only to find that they barely last 3 years of light use - including very well known brands/names. With this unit I could buy 2 or 3 for the price of a single so called business class laptop. Good job Toshiba!

    Great laptop overall

    Posted .

    Laptop feels mechanically solid and I like the aluminum finish. Not sure why the color is described as satin gold as it looks pretty much just silver to me. I had no issues with setup and performance. The speakers sound pretty good for a laptop. I went ahead and upgraded the HDD to an SDD. This was more difficult than my previous experiences with other laptops as it involves carefully prying off the bottom shell and detaching a couple of ribbon cables. The only thing I don't really like is the touchpad as it is glossy and starts to build a little sliding resistance at times. Not a big deal.

    Fantastic Laptop (minus one issue at the moment)

    Posted .

    Got this laptop over 2 months ago and I'm very satisfied. It's really just great. The new Intel i5 is more then enough power for me (i'm currently a student who also does computer programming on the side). The touch screen is at just the right balance between too sensitive and not sensitive enough. The battery rocks. It holds its charge very well and has a super speedy recharge(by far the biggest surprise from this laptop). The back-lit keyboard is awesome, don't know how I made do with out it for so long! The one issue I'm having, and have been having for a while, is that it wont stay in sleep/hibernate mode. It will either wake up 5 hours later on its own or it will go the whole night without waking up (as it should). I'm not sure what exactly the issue is, I've been trying to crack it for a while but to no avail. I think i will call Toshiba soon to see what they say (they have been very helpful in the past) In any case, this is my second Toshiba Laptop and i'm very happy with this purchase (Bought it for $600 during the Black Friday sale).

    Great computer for business use

    Posted .

    I've only been using this computer for 2 weeks and it replaced a laptop with Vista so Windows 8.1 is taking a bit to get used to. The touch screen as well as the touch-pad are both super-sensitive when you move to the right, making the start screen pop up randomly. I store TONS of photos for business so the 750 GB hard drive was more important to me than the speed of an SSD. The 1080 screen resolution is crisp and bright enough to use out on my patio. The back-lit keyboard is great in dimly lit rooms! The 4100 version of this computer lists the battery life as over 7 hrs so I was hoping for the same with this. I can surf the web, while working on Office documents or 3-D design software and get a solid 5 hours before notifications start popping up telling me to plug in the laptop. The color really isn't GOLD -- looks like brushed nickel to me!! Overall, I think this is a great computer for the price.

    Nice upgrade for laptop traditionalists

    |
    Posted .

    I like this laptop because it's more of a traditional laptop. I didn't want a tablet OR an ultrabook per se, but I still wanted something that was fairly portable and that I could still use on my lap. It does everything I need it to: runs Office, prints, Internet, has a camera and microphone. It works pretty quick. It restarts and turns on pretty quick. The keys are easy to type on. The cons are: I'm not a big user of the touchscreen and there are a bunch of useless apps. The bad part: Sometimes it does weird things, like switches back to the Windows 8 screen while I'm typing a Word document. Sometimes while I'm on a website, it decreases the zoom and makes the print really small. It is taking me a while to figure it all out. For example, I learned that if you swipe from the left off the touchpad, it toggles you back and forth from the Windows 8 screen to the desktop. Other than that, it's a pretty decent laptop that I hope will last for years. I highly recommend it for students. The only thing it's missing is a CD/DVD Rom drive, which you'd be hard pressed to find on any new laptop.

    Absolutely love this laptop.

    I've never had any problems with Toshiba which is why I chose to stick with them. This is my second Toshiba laptop (I gave my old one to my brother), and this laptop came out around the same time I was in search of a new laptop. Its beautiful. I love the metallic look to it. I love the back lit keyboard. The keys are nice and smooth. It's sleek, it's thin and very lightweight. I am a college student, so I carry this thing literally everywhere with me. I use it for homework, I stream netflix, and I listen to lots of music. This laptop comes with harmon/kardon audio system built in. In case you didn't know, harmon/kardon makes an amazing line of bluetooth speakers and headphones/earphones called "JBL." Oh & love this touch screen too! Definitely easier to navigate through Windows 8 operating system.

    solid, if not spectacular

    They should give you a way to easily roll back to Windows 7 presentation. Windows 8 presentation is terrible feature rich,, great display, super fast at handling large amounts of data some of the settings were not in default mode and required calling customer service to remedy Customer service was able to resolve on initial call in both instances

    The best you can buy for that price and performanc

    Posted .

    I went to US for vacations and to find a laptop that can be light weight, affordable and good performance for bussines. After looking too much, I found this pc the best option taking into account that best buy sold it at a minor price than toshiba´s web page, except for that instead of 8 GB you get 6 GB of RAM and 750 GB instead of 1 TB of hard disk space. With only a few days, in terms of battery life, this pc sometimes last more than 6 hours and other times more than 7; i turn off features like bluetooth, use like 60% of lighting screen. In performance it´s good, too enough to run excel, word, and for web browsing. Finally, I think that Toshiba it´s maybe the best brand looking price, style and preformance, there are many other good brands, maybe apple just offer more baterry life but it´s not worth the value.

    Fast, fun and nice for the price

    Posted .

    One month in, I'm very impressed with the Toshiba Satellite 14" touch-screen laptop. It's fast, runs Windows 8.1 with no difficulty whatsoever and is fun to use (touching the screen, using the keyboard or mousing). The E45t-A4100 does not have a built-in CD/DVD drive but I bought a Toshiba SuperMulti Drive PA3834U-1DV2 (love the way Toshiba names their products -- makes it absolutely impossible to tell someone what you are using). The drive uses the two side-by-side USB 3.0 ports on the laptop and runs as soon as you plug it in. I also have a backup USB drive that uses a USB 3.0 port, so I have to unplug it to use the multi-drive, but that certainly is not a problem since I use the multi-drive so seldom. The only item not included on the computer that I missed was the little indicator light that shows when the hard drive is being accessed. I was able to find a very nice add-on indicator (DiskLED) that gets the job done nicely. I have no problem recommending this laptop. It's fast, fun and, very nice for a very nice price.

    Great performing computer at a good price

    Posted .

    I have owned this well designed computer for several months. I also own Macbooks , Vaios, and others.... I work in the computer technology field and use this computer every day at work and primarily only for work. This is my most reliable computer in every aspect (besides watching movies which for some reason I have yet to do on this machine so can not comment on). When something fails on my Macbook or other computer I always come running back to this Toshiba Ultrabook. This ultrabook puts up with a massive amount of abuse and handles it like your dog that hasn't seen you in days... It's always perfectly running and happy to see you. The only issues with this computer would be the smudge spots on the touchscreen, the slightly loud fan that happens once in a while, and that I do not own another one. Also, the touch-pad works great but since I use Macbooks a lot it does feel a bit different... In conclusion this is a premium computer at a lower cost... You can also build it up to 16g from 6g for about $150, which makes it immortal or add a SSD drive for around $200 to make it quiet. If you are looking to get a really nice computer for about $1,500 that looks the same in appearance check out the Kira book by Toshiba.

    Perfect Laptop for All Applications

    Posted .

    Had suffered with a Dell laptop for a few years and was afraid to make another bad choice. My husband bought this laptop as a surprise for my birthday and it has been an absolute pleasure to use. The lit keyboard is an added plus. Don't hesitate to get the Geek Squad protection plan and virus protection ... a worthwhile bonus. Put the Microsoft 2013 package on it and this computer handles everything beautifully. My favorite thing is the keyboard's solid touch ... makes life so much easier.
