Score 1.0/10
Good points:
The speekers are excelent quality
Bad points:
ALL of the Toshiba software preinstalled on the computer is either unnecessarry, unhelpfull and power hungry. With so much Toshiba software trying to run at start up it drasticly slows down the boot up time. Much of the software duplicates items available in the opperating system and so in quite unnecessary. The update adviser software is convoluted and overly fancy as well as not giving good information and not making it easy to moniter and install the updates.

I have been using a Toshiba laptop for some 5 and was very happy with its performance and the lack of bespoke software introduced on to the machine By Toshiba. This new machine has proved to be a complete dissapointment to me given my passed experience with Toshiba products.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Good looks
Bad points:
1.) Casing doesn't look like made up of good robust material.It looks like it may crack even if it accedentially falls from small height.
2.) I am not able to find the difference in performance compared to ther i3,...&i5 process Laptops.
3.) CD/Blueray drive is so delicate design that we must always be carefull while inserting CD.
4.) When we operate the buttons of bottom browising pad,it generates sound like 'tick-tick'.It's ver annoying.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I love Toshiba Laptops this is my second and my father has one. They seem better built than most others and have been very reliable, perhaps a little heavier than many but I like this about them.
Bad points:
The mark for battery is based on my old Laptop as i have not used it with my new one.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Excellent screen and keyboard seems well equipped although slow to boot up. Good selection of preloaded software including MS Office 2010 starter pack.
Bad points:
Power pack is enormous and very heavy. Why???This will make it a bad by for anyone who wants to carry it around with them on a frequent basis. Also very slow to boot up this was the same with my previous Toshiba - why?

Anthony, Gillingham Kent Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Graphics, memory, performance, and general build
Bad points:
The touchpoint mousepad... I hate the thing especially when it zooms in or zooms out on websites when you dont want it to.
The lack of recovery media which seems to be the thing these days. Would have been nice to have had a disc(s) included given the price tag
