I was looking for a new laptop in to replace my clunky desktop, but I did not want to give up computing power in a trade off for portability. I also wanted a large 17 inch display to avoid eye strain.
Recommend this product?
I chose the Toshiba C675 because of its dual core AMD processor and large screen. I also needed a good battery life in order to use the laptop on the go.
The processor is great and can handle multiple tasks with ease. I work hard with my computer and often have 5 - 10 web pages open and 3 - 5 programs at any given time. This laptop handles everything I throw at it with no problems. It has no noticable delays when switching between programs, which is important for me when multitasking.
The large 17 inch display is important to prevent eye strain while working long hours.
The full sized keyboard is great for speed typing long articles.
Working full blast with it, the battery lasts just over 3 hours. Intermittantly, it can just make it through the 5 hours while I am at at work.
My only real complaints are the hacked up Microsoft Office version that is included with constant advertisements showing on screen. I finally downloaded openoffice for free to handle all my work. Also the speakers are weak and barely audible at full volume.
Overall, this is a great laptop and satisfies all my needs.
For a good, large screen, powerful processor and low price, I would recommend this to others.
