Pros: Fast,well priced
I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite laptop. While I was looking into getting a new laptop, my cousin mentioned Toshiba to me. I started comparing laptops and found Toshiba was the way to go.
This computer is extremely fast and reliable. It has 1 gig of RAM, 128 MB video card, 100 gig hard drive and a 2.2 GHz duo core processor. I can have many programs running at the same time and not have to worry about it freezing up or crashing.
When I purchased this laptop I was expecting it to be light weight and run rather quickly. It weighs no more than 8 or 9 pounds, which is fairly light weight for a laptop of this size. I have also been able to run multiple programs at the same time and not once has it froze on me. I was also expecting great customer service and so far that is all I have received.
The customer service is amazing. When my motherboard went bad I sent it in and they replaced the motherboard for free and had it back to me in less than 2 weeks. I was extremely pleased by how well their customer service took care of things. They didnt once question me or give me a hard way to go about replacing the motherboard.
When I purchased this laptop it was originally $900 but they had it marked down $200 at Best Buy. So far it has been worth every dollar I spent. I have never had any problems with this laptop and it still looks and runs like it did when I first purchased it. The screen has not gotten dimmer or scratched like some screens do. And the keys have been able to withstand lots of usage.
I honestly cannot think of how this laptop can be improved upon. For the price I paid I got of the best parts for the cheapest price. The laptop runs perfectly fine and I have never had any problems with it since the motherboard was replaced. So far all the programs I have installed run fine and it has had no compatibility problems. Another fantastic feature about this laptop is the fact that it is easily upgradeable.
The programs this laptop came with were surprisingly decent. It came with MacAfee antivirus and Microsoft Office 2003. These two programs were the most important to me because as a student I need Microsoft Office for almost all of my classes. And the anti-virus program allows me to surf the web safely.
One of the things that stands out about this laptop is how easy it is to use. When trying to connect to a wireless network it is very easy and only requires clicking on the wireless network and connecting to whichever network you desire. The shortcut keys are also very easy to use and quick.
Compared to similar laptops I believe this computer is better than most. It is cheaper in price and runs faster and smoother than most other laptops. If you were to purchase a laptop of similar specs you would pay much more than $900 let alone $700. I am extremely happy with this laptop and recommend this laptop to all my friends whenever they are asking which computer to get.
