    Great laptop for basic use

    I was in need of a laptop with a bigger screen that could handle my everyday tasks - office productivity software, web browsing (mostly social media, sports, news and medical reference websites) and music/video streaming. This laptop has been able to handle these things easily! Internet browsing speeds will be largely dependent on your ISP and allotted speed. I feel this computer could handle simple image editing w/o issues b/c most of my usage has the RAM running b/t 33-45%. Make sure you uninstall all of the bloatware. I would NOT use this laptop for gaming. I originally paid $249.99 and 1 week later it went on sale for $229.99. BB refunded the difference under their price match guarantee, no questions asked! This is my first Toshiba laptop and have enjoyed my short experience with it. I was expecting to hate Windows 8.1 (coming from Windows 7) and actually like it! The transition is easy if you have experience using tablets. Overall, I believe this laptop is a great bang for your buck if you want a basic machine for basic tasks.

    Best entrance level laptop

    This laptop is one of the best entrance level laptops, which has Intel Celeron 2.16GHz CPU, 4GB Memory, and 500GB Hard Drive , for the price under $200. I have had it for about 2 months and used it nearly everyday. So far I haven't had any problem except the pre-installed Norton utility program that made the internet connection interrupted periodically. After removing it, I have never experienced any internet connection interrupted. The good features that this laptop has include the responsible keyboard, reasonable screen resolution (1366x768), 3 USB ports (including 1 USB 3.0), 1 HDMI and its light weight. The bad features that this laptop has include the difficult access to all function keys, not replaceable battery, and too light for laptop base (hard to keep base on desk while opening the lid). Overall, it is a good and best entrance level laptop for the price under $200.

    Great entry-level computer!

    I purchased it for $199 a couple of weeks ago. Of course, it is entry level and you can't multi-task very much (I watch my Task Master to check memory and cpu usage). I was surprised that I was able to use my Corel Paintshop Pro X5 (photo editing). If you want a computer to check your email, watch netflix, hulu and youtube, surf the internet, this is the computer for you. The reason I purchased it was because it is so light weight. I am used to using a 17.3 inch that weight 7+ lbs. This is so light weight you hardly know it is on your lap. Also so much easier to take on vacation. Don't have to worry about my $1,000 laptop being stolen.

    Best Bang for Buck

    This is actually the third one of these Toshiba laptops($250) I've bought in the last year. 1st for me, then for two different friends less tech savvy. 4th friend bought his own. Screen size decent, but kind of smallish compared to a desktop with widescreen, but enough to get the job done. About 30 minutes battery time without being in eco mode. Windows 8.1 now standard, however, I feel touchpad is clunky with windows 8.1 and would recommend anyone buying this add on a Bluetooth wireless mouse to the purchase. This is NOT a touchscreen laptop. 4GB RAM should be enough for anyone but a gamer to get about 2-3 years out of this machine.

    This was the very first laptop I ever bought so I didn't know how well it was going to be. To my surprise this was a extremely good computer for a very low price. I can watch video on this computer without having to worry about it buffering or crashing. It was also very easy to understand, and I love that it comes with a built-in webcam and mic. I couldn't have ask for a better laptop.

    Great computer for the money... has all I need

    I originally bought this computer solely for the price and because it is among the few available with a CD/DVD drive, which I need for certain aspects of my work and other things. I did not expect much more and figured I'd be replacing it in the near future. However, so far, I have had absolutely NO problems (other than trying to figure out Windows 8, but that's just me, I guess!). In fact, it has worked better than other laptops I have had that cost more money. It is as fast now as the day I bought it almost a year ago. I am very happy with it!!

    Can't say enough about it. I was looking for a windows media machine. I plugged it into my 27" monitor, and it just did the job. Turns out that it is more than powerful enough for my "real" computer needs too. Hod to delete the microsoft cpu devices from device manager to get full power, but it is very fast. Wish it was easier to upgrade the memory, but that seems to be very doable. Nice machine. Good keyboard, great screen, nice sound, great graphics. Just nice. Great for the price.

    Great laptop, especially for the price. Nice screen, responsive keyboard and trackpad. Other models in this price range didn't include DVD, USB 3.0 or even wired LAN. This one does. Standout battery life too at 6 hours+ Hard to beat that outside of Apples. Toshiba makes a great product. No problems with previous models that I have owned either. Thumbs up!

    I don't understand, what were you waiting? There is writing laptop's specifications, overview and price! Didn't you read before buy? Dollar for dollar, just cpu value is $107,00, 500 GB HDD ~ $50, 4 GB DDR3L 1333MHz RAM ~ $44 etc. This laptop for internet browsing, chatting, download and upload. Just bad thing for me, my brother bought this for me $250, now it's price $230 ban!

    I have already purchased 1 of these for my wife and one for my daughter and they have both worked flawlessly for them for about a year now. I haven't used mine much but it works great for me when I do. I use it primarily for surfing the web and business use. I attach external speakers because the internal ones are not good. Dispay is good and large enough memory and hard drive but memory can't be enlarged. However, it is a super value for the $199 I paid for it. I would definitely recommend it to a friend that doesn't need high speed or great sound.

    I had an emergency need to purchase a computer and was hoping to not spend a ton of money. After looking around the store I noticed a bunch of people flocking to the Toshiba exhibit. I ventured over, read the specs and knew this was the computer I needed. I then completely fell in love with the unit when I saw the price. It was half the cost of a desktop. I immediately purchased my Toshiba and have not had one problem. The computer performs for what I need it to and has the versatility to travel anywhere I go.

    This makes several Toshiba's we've purchased in this price range. They tend to last about 3 -4 years each. We have had 4 in our household and this most recent one was a gift for a family member. At this price point, the average laptop user will find everything they need in a reliable brand. We used to spend upwards of $800-$1,000 for laptops, but these days the prices have become competitive enough to get the same quality & brand for less than $300- highly recommend this laptop.

    At first I thought this was going to be a very slow computer. I got it at home and tried it and this computer has quick response! It is great for internet browsing, banking, ebay, face book, and watching videos on Youtube . No lagging or slowing down. A great price for a Celeron Intel computer for only $249.99

    I think this computer is great it runs fast and I have not had any problems with it since I purchased it over a month ago. The price was very reasonable and I have enjoyed the windows store that was preinstalled on it I was told that when I would add my programs to it for school such as adobe master suite 6 that it would slow it down well so far it hasn't slowed it down at all. If you are looking for a computer that runs at a great speed and doesn't cost alot this is the computer for you.

    I bought one for my wife and three weeks later I bought one for myself. These are very capable computers for normal use. The Celeron chip may be slower but it accomplishes all our needs for picture files, video files, spreadsheet work, word processing and internet access. It handles all our needs with plenty of speed. All this at a great price! BestBuy support and customer service has been very good.

    It's a great laptop for what I need. Watching movies - DVD's and writing in Word, keeping a journal. Don't really care for all the "apps" options - kind of frustrating that this laptop isn't old school in the sense that I don't have my tool bar/menu bar at the bottom, like I used to get with all my previous laptops. But maybe that's just Window 8? This laptop is being discontinued, so I was able to purchase the floor model for $192.00 - to me that was the best buy!

    We've had Toshiba laptops for years, so when my wife needed a new laptop, we went with another Toshiba and were not disappointed. This is not a 'power laptop' nor would I recommend trying to play high-end, graphic intensive games on it. But, for hanging out on Facebook, playing Facebook games, chatting with friends, and general browsing it fits the bill and at a good price. Her only complaint is that she hates Windows 8, but that is not the fault of the laptop.

    This is a great laptop, especially for the price!. Thin, sleek and light, it's esthetically pleasing. The keypad is user-friendly and the machine's functionality is exactly what I needed: I don't game, and this processor is more than adequate for me. It runs Windows 8.1, which I'm getting used to and hasn't presented any problems or glitches. I was able to reinstate the Start button and the desktop I'm accustomed to, so I'm really happy with my purchase.

    This laptop has excellent value for the money. It's a budget laptop, but for the price you can't beat the value. It has a HDMI out, and DVD player/recorder which seems to be absent from some of the low end laptops. It runs online games such as Minecraft without hesitation, or overheating which surprised me for being a Celeron chip (as opposed to i3-i5 or AMD A8 etc). If you need a solid laptop for general use, you can't go wrong with it.

    I have been a regular customer on such products for over number of years. I've found them very compatible and of great value. This made me recommend many of my friends to purchase it. They are pleased they did. I will continue to recommend to more friends. I hope u will be sending alert for such products and others to me as u have been doing.
