Sarah, Windlesham. Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The screen, shame that it's not full 1080p, and especially the sound quality are very good, speaking as a boradcast engineer. It is quite quick, even if it's "just" an Intel i3.
Bad points:
The Toshiba hard disk protection system may have benefits, but it's really annoying if your trying to listen to MP3's in a moving car, when the slightest bump causes data loss. Maybe it's a time that all laptops had the option of SSD's, I know from experience they can more than double battery life ( HP 6930p ) and don't need these annoying protection systems.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A very good, solid feeling laptop and I'm impressed. 500GB is plenty of hard drive space for my needs, and the 2.4GHz Intel Coreā„¢ i3-370M processor is fine and speedy. The graphics card means you can play games when you're not working, and is powerful enough to let me play games such as Mass Effect 2 and Fallout 3. Some lovely extra features too; it has a Blu-Ray drive, it gives the best picture I've seen from a laptop when plugged into a widescreen TV via HDMI (via upscaling), it's speakers are much better than those on most laptops, and has a host of other helpful hardware and software add-ons from Toshiba that are very worthwhile. This laptop was a replacement for one of a different make that was faulty, and I'm glad as this one seems more superior all round. Toshiba's product seems a lot more polished, and that much more thought has gone into it.
Bad points:
Not a bad screen, but not as sharp as I've seen on some laptops (however, it's absolutely fine for the price you pay).

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I love the keypads,they are quiet and flushed. I love the general look of the laptop.
Bad points:
The webcam quality is very poor. I had to attach another camera to get a good quality video for skype. The facial recognition never works. Disappointed by that. Also battery life could have been longer than 2 hours.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Stylish design, keyboard layout is perfect and easy to use, blu-ray player is excellent especially when connected to HD tv as it does deliver full HD without any stops or jumps through lack of performance.
Bad points:
The speakers constantly make a vibration noise and only the slightest of touches to the body of the laptop makes the vibration worse. Although this only lasts a few seconds it is annoying and not what you expect for the price tag. The performance of the computer is questionable in some areas, it can be slow between movement of screens and opening programs etc takes much longer than expected considering the positives of the I-series of processors has been built up to be that it will eat these sort of tasks no problem....well not on this evidence.
