Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Keyboard is easy to use, good audio quality, relatively easy to set up, lots of automatic checks to prompt you to do the right thing, e.g. back up, troubleshoot etc
Bad points:
Almost too much stuff to process. The Easy Transfer option was OK, but still could have better information on setting up and transferring from one computer to another, which is what takes up all the time, particularly with different operating systems etc

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is the third Toshiba Laptop I've had, I've also had a Sony Vaio. The Toshiba's knocks the Sony out of the ballpark.

This computer is impressive in looks and ability. It's fast and very precise. I've read expert reviewers criticizing the screen quality on this model, rubbish, it's all that and more.

Don't hesitate to purchase this computer if you're interested, it's superb.

The sound is spectacular!

I give it a high eleven out of ten...

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The keyboard is excellent
Bad points:
The power-in point is awkward and the web cam highlight area is difficult to avoid until you get used to where it is, so it keeps popping up at you; it would be great to be able to turn it on/off.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
fast start-up. good layout - useful full size keyboard (including number pad).
Bad points:
Does its own thing at times. Set a picture background for the desktop, and next start-up it had disappeared. Checking forums I am not alone - is this a microsoft thing?

Carol, Great Dumnow General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Build quality
Clear instructions for start up when it comes out the box (back up discs etc)
Bad points:
Power cord and adapter don't bundle together easily and become clumsy - being able to use the adapter as a spindle to wrap the cord around then secure with the velco strap would be neater solution

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well designed. Good performance
Bad points:
I don't like the DVD drive draw is on the same side as the power cable and the majority of the USD slots and head phone. This can make it difficult to open the draw when multiple devices are connected to the lap top.
