Unexpeted Poor Performance

 

Mostly I want to comment on the speed of this machine. I am unable to start an RDP connection in a reasonable amount of time while running literally anything else. I am not commenting on the speed of the RDP connection once established, just the setup....

Plenty of USB ports ; Full number pad

Slow ; Missed keystrokes ; Glossy screen

good

 

Use a mouse for this product instead of the pad. A mouse is thousands of times more responsive. Cd drive works decently. Just a suggestion download movies and apps. Such as netflix, hulu, crackle, iTunes, EA origin, Steam, and microsofts version of the...

Good for Microsoft office, and indie gaming. Plays counter strike global offensive at 80+ fps, minecraft 60+ fps. If your streaming on it get something more powerful. Good for presentation designing and much more. This is a good laptop to start out...

Mouse pad feels like it's going to fall off. Mousepad button once did. CD drive feels a bit low build quality. CPU cooler and the power supply scream. The laptop can get loud for 60% of the time

Cheap but still upgradable!

 

My boy wanted to buy the HP Stream 13 for school work. I know the Stream is not upgradable at all. So we bought this. Upgraded the ram to 8 gb ddr3 1600 and threw in a 50 dollar 120 gb ssd. We loaded windows 7 on it and it is a beast. Thank you Toshiba

Slow Celeron and 2 gb ram but it is upgradable

Not very happy

 

Should have spent a little more money on a faster laptop with more RAM

Good price, installation was very easy

DVD Drive doesn't read DVDs, only data CDs. The laptop is slow to do pretty much anything. I was hoping it would at least surf the net fast, but it's just plain slow

Great Case

 

none. Cheap if you want slow performance

Warranty. My lcd screen developed dead pixels after 2 months.. After taking pics and sending them to toshiba support. They contacted me and said the limited warranty doesnt cover this repair. What a scam

No DVD drive included

 

Took some getting use to on how to navagate Windows 8 As I was use to Windows 7 and XP until I purchased this Laptop.

Fast processing, good size LCD, light weight and the battery lasts for just over four hours. if I needed to purchase a replacement, I would buy this same model

There was no optical drive included but as the specs said this when I read them I knew that there was no optical drive before I purchased the Laptop

Spend your money on a better product

 

For a $250 dollar laptop it works, but I think you would be better off spending a bit more money for a better product.

Cheap, HDMI, runs decent for a Celeron with 2GB RAM

One RAM slot, the whole bottom has to come off to add more RAM, tried to upgrade to 4GB but could not find compatable RAM locally and will have to special order, and most of all; No Optical Drive, nor is an internal one available on Toshiba's website
