David, Garforth Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good sized keyboard with separate numeric keypad, keys very good quality with a positive response when using. Set-up for various wireless networks was straight forward and when roaming connects very quickly. Good clear and bright screen, I tend to use it on lowest brightness setting when indoors and it's bright enough to read easily. Webcam and mic work extremely well, I use them with various applications and have had no issues thus far. Good sized hard drive and plenty of memory. No issues encountered using any of the USB/Network/HDMI ports - not used eSata yet.
Especially like being able to turn the keypad off as I prefer to use a mouse.
Bad points:
Poor battery life, the product spec quotes a 4 hour battery life, however, even on eco settings it only lasts around 2 hours, so I tend to run it off mains whenever possible.
For an 8 core i7 processor I expected it to be a little faster.

Good points:
Great sound and graphics
Bad points:

Still disappointed as I expected faster speed from a i7 processor

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice layout on keyboard expecially with thecross hair zoom on the pad so i find it pretty easy to use. Its got plenty of hard drive for me at the moment and Toshiba has added some excellent software.
Bad points:
The battery doesnt seem to last as long as I would expect it to and the speakers are a bit limited.
