Toshiba Hits It Outta The Park!

Pros:Intel i3 w/4g is awesome! It’s fast and powerful, with brilliant color.

Cons:The only improvement… the sound system. You need external speakers to get volume and clarity.

The Bottom Line:

This lap top has it all, power, speed and storage space. The cons are so small and easily fixed, they’re hardly worth mentioning.


I originally purchased this unit for my wife as a Birthday Gift. She used it 1 time and turned it over to me! "Way more than I need!" she said. I had an older Toshiba at the time, which I was quite happy with. When I tore into this bad boy, I was blown away.

The Intel Core i3 with 4g RAM is a great combo with the Windows 7 OS that comes with it. The computer was not overloaded with useless software that you sometimes get on new computers. The large 500g HD is more than enough. It has a standard size keyboard and a very desirable track pad that is durable and will last forever! The keyboard also has a full numerical key pad, which I find very helpful. The computer boots very quickly and with proper maintenance, keeps running smooth.   

The price I paid was about $725, on eBay. I’ve had it now for almost a year, and I use it every day. I use it for Photo Shop work and web design, and it handles it all very well. The battery pack is great, with about 3-4 hours of use, and re-charges quickly. It only has two USB ports, but that’s not really a problem one can’t get around easily enough with a 4 hub extension. It works great with a projector and is easy to set up. 

This is a great unit to watch movies on, with the exception of the sound system. External powered speakers are a must, and make this laptop perfect! 

 Core i3 2.1 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, 15.6 in. TruBrite TFT LCD, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.
