Great Computer for an Even Better Price!Posted .
Let me start by saying that this is my first non Sony Vaio laptop. I usually spend more money on higher end technology, but for the first time I was really on a budget making a significant computer purchase. There were several Acers in the running with this Satellite (as well as another) as far as price and specs went. At the end of the day, pound for pound this was the one that had the most bang for the buck! I must admit, I wasn't sure what I'd get when I fired it up. Since the moment I did, this laptop has been pretty freaking awesome! If you're a gamer or use high end graphics, this computer isn't for you. But for everyone else, particularly students on a budget...this IS the affordable, reliable, high-quality, lightweight, and aesthetically pleasing machine you are looking for. Seriously. At the risk of sounding cliche...this is truly a BEST BUY!!I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this laptop for my daughter so that it would be here in time for me to give to her while she's home from nursing school. Her old laptop, which she'd been awarded by her high school, was a dinosaur. We charged the system up, turned it on and DOA!!! The screen appears to have been cracked would be my guess, as it appears to have a large burn spot on the screen, with the rest of the screen complete garbage. No new laptop for my daughter for a while. Thanks for ruining my surprise gift for my daughter Best Buy and Toshiba. I won't be using either to replace this unit.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Near Perfect Midrange HardwarePosted .
The case is a solid black looks beautiful.Could have been different colors however.5 The memory being 6GB is standard.That is good considering this uses onboard graphics.Great use of system resources.However.This does not allow you to adjust how much memory you want to allocate to use for your video.The BIOS is not great.But still very useable.5 Sound quality is Excellent.You can hook up Surround sound speakers an get full audio an DTS sound.Very important 5 Resolution being 1600x900p Excellent!That is what i want.That or 1920x1080p.Close Enough! 5 CON: The OS or Operating System.Is a complete frailer! it was unresponsive an out right refused to do what i the user demanded of it.Not that it could not.IT REFUSED!!It said NO! I WONT do that!Then asked can this share my personal information with companies.NO!Can we send your information to advertisers?NO!The system will not even start up unless you give them your Email address. Here is the problem with that.Your Email is connected to your Location,phone number,mailing address and where on the map you are located.Not to mention your games personal and private account information that business find you and send you alerts comes from there.Anyone can hack or steal your email account.Having your email as the ONLY WAY to log into Windows 8.1 is the single worst possible form of security. It gets even worse about Windows 8.1.I disable Windows updates,Security Center and Windows Defender.Why?Because they turn themselves on an start installing things into my system that causes crashes mouse freezes,Jittery mouse movements an so on.They are the main reason i do not like Windows at all.Windows 8.1 REFUSES to allow any change to these functions!Says NO! You may not change or disable spyware. You may not change what you payed for.So to that.I tried to uninstall it by installing a Windows 7 Ultimate DVD.It says I go into changes updates an to DvD player.Yes i literally had to find the function to run DvDs other wise it would not run them.Then when i get there.It says " OK restart your computer an I will run the DvD. " It restarts . . . . . . It did not run the DvD. . . . . I have NEVER run into a more user HOSTILE Operating System in my entire life!What good is a OS if it wont let you do anything on it?!So i had to use my other computer to check YouTube videos on how to get a DvD TO JUST OPERATE on a Windows 8.1. Apparently you go through a lot of trouble.Then i removed it get this.By tapping F2+FN at the same time.An had to disable some functions in BIOS just to have control over the computer.See YouTube for details.Now Because of the Operating system i would give this system 0 Stars out of 5.Literally You Should be paying ME to use this OS!There is NOTHING Attractive about it!NOTHING! There is the average.Then there is the Below average.Then there is Negative.That is THIS Operating System.This system was $399.99.For the OS alone.This system should be $149.99.This is a Honest Review.NOTHING Would have been better than this.It took hours to get into the BIOS once in Linux i was able to see what was going on.It had 5 Partitions on one drive.One for Media one for Recovery (Yes No recovery DvD Way to go!You lost points for that Well no.)Another one for Services.Then you.Then a blank one Which give direct data to the NSA of what your doing.Well isn't that a invasion of privacy.The OS to be removed immediately.After that With Windows 7. AMAZING performance Smooth performance in games and with Video rendering.Near Perfect Build I would Highly recommend this Hardware.... Not the software.But definitely the Hardware! I Would recommend this to a friend or user IF you have a completely different Operating System.Never give out your Email to Anyone!I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Laptop for the MoneyPosted .
The Toshiba 17.3 laptop is an excellent buy for the money and I am very pleased with it with a few minor exceptions. First, I found that the shift key will not work unless you hold it down. Second, as someone already mentioned, the speakers leave a lot to be desired. I played a movie DVD on it and, I could not hear the dialogue. I used some cheap external speakers and the sound was still low even with the speakers turned way up. Also, the computer internal voice is a little disconcerting and I had to turn it off because it is very distracting. However, I do believe that, for the money, the laptop is an excellent buy and operates fairly fast. It takes a little bit of time to get everything set up but, once that is done, everything seems to work fine. I am a writer and I needed a laptop to take with me on my signing tours. This laptop fills the bill adequately. This is my second Toshiba and I have been satisfied with both of them.I would recommend this to a friend

Lemon speakers?Posted .
Ok, so I buy this Toshiba Satellite17.3 Laptop. AMD A-8 Series with 6GB Mem. and 750 GB Hard Dr. Everything on it works wonderfully EXCEPT the speakers. I said no to recommend to friends only until I find out if all of these are the same or just this laptop in particular. Very strange, music sounds great when I plug into external speakers or even the TV. But, when it comes to the voice you cannot hear it. No matter how loud you put them. I am hoping only a speaker issue with this laptop not all of this make and model. Bringing this back, will try another of the same model but will be checked before I leave the store.. To be cont......No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good for the pricePosted .
Overall this is a good computer. The integrated speakers are not the best, but at home I use it with speakers, and with a headphone while travelling, so it doesn't bother me at all. It comes with Windows 8.1 and it is not the best, but if you pick the personal setup while setting up your windows, you can turn off all the useless features, and only allow the important updates, which helps. The only reason I dont give 5 stars, is the noise the HDD makes. It is normal after 1 year of usage but it is not righ after unboxing the laptop. It also runs some games I like, which I didn't really expect because of the processor. (World of Warcraft runs on Ultra quality, World of Tanks runs on low) The touchpad and the keyboard feels really nice, and the picture what the display provides, is beautiful. Overall I am really satisfied.I would recommend this to a friend

Good laptop for the price!Posted .
I purchased this laptop due to price/performance point. The screen on this laptop is HUGE. Very nice, vibrant colors. Boots up pretty quickly and can run most applications and games (if you're a gamer like I am). A couple drawbacks though - actual performance could be a little better. It does take a little while to load certain applications and games, but once they're loaded things run relatively seamless. You WILL need to adjust the color/screen options when you first use it. Blacks were washed out, colors were too bright, etc. but nothing that some tweaking fixed. Overall - a good laptop for the price/performance.I would recommend this to a friend
Q: QuestionDoes this computer come with the original Window DVD 8's?Name all DVD's that physically come with this purchased item?

Asked by DocJay.
- A:Answer This machine would be fine for watching movies either online or from DVD. Main thing to remember is to have updated video drivers and the proper codecs installed to view your movies (stuff inside browsers like Netflix and Hulu should "just work"). Unfortunately W8.x doesn't come with codecs for certain movie file formats (like W7 did!) so you might have to download an app like VLC that includes these codecs (or another app of your choosing). This will allow you to play DVD discs as well as files such as MKV, AVI, XVID, MPG, MP4, etc.
