Keith, Redhill, Surrey General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Quick, loads of memory and plenty of space for media files. Works really well am very pleased with it . Does everything you would expect it to do.
Bad points:
Windows 8.1 it's hard to use and takes time to sort out how to turn off loads of things I don't want it to do and it does automatically for me e.g. I log into my hotmail account, and now I have to enter the hotmail account password to get into the my user account. I prefer to turn options on not spending hours trying to find out how to turn them off.

Keyboard is a bit insensitive especially if you are a touch typist as the keys are a bit far apart.

Aaron, Bournemouth General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's a very lightweight tidy laptop of ideal size, my last one seems very heavy by comparison. I haven't fully tested it on battery alone, and will give that a try.
It handlers most functions adequately and performs to my person needs very well. I very much like the white finish, and with all the high specs this claimed, it is just an average machine.
Bad points:
The sound is very tinny, a real noticeable issue. I had read a review where it stated this, but my last two laptops were Toshiba, so trusted it to be a viewer fussy issue rather than product defect, but no its awful. For watching catchup TV I plug hdmi into my TV so this isn't a huge issue, but no playing YouTube of music for long periods, I use a tablet for that. Such a shame Toshiba, what were you thinking?
There are sometimes some sluggish moments where it seems to struggle doing things. With the more than adequate processor it should be fine. Task manager doesn't clearly show what the problem is. But for the most part its fine.
As a refurbished laptop at a reduced price I have got value laptop. With vastly higher spec than my much older £600 laptop I'm surprised the older one performs better.

I would buy it again if needed. The sound quality is the biggest flaw.
