Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very fast, good graphics card (watch HD quality smoothly)
Good touchpad, which does not get hot (a lot of other laptops do this and its very uncomfortable to use) and nice keyboard
Fast processing e.g. editing videos
Good multi tasking (as expected at this price)
Has an HDMI input so you can connect it up to your HD tv
Bad points:
Battery life - this was something that annoyed me straight away with the product, it said it was a 3/4 hour battery life, however this is only when you are word processing and nothing else. When video editing (a task that requires a lot of memory) the battery life is only about an hour.

Speakers, poor sound quality when listening to music with a lot of bass. However every laptop i have seen has poor bass sound quality, so dont take this into account when deciding to get a laptop. If you want good sound, just connect it up to your own speakers or listen through headphones.

Again like most laptops, when its on your lap it can get hot, which becomes uncomfortable

Other than these points, i have not had any other problems with the laptop and would recommend buying it (its one of the best for this price)

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good screen - crisp, clear display. Nice keyboard - like having the separate number keys. Performance seems reasonable. Quick start up time compared to my previous system.
Bad points:
Sound quality not great. Face recognition system is gimmicky and doesn't seem to work very well. Touchpad area not clearly visible from some angles.

Shaun, Ketterin Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The battery life is good. Close to 3 hours with minimal use. Speakers are good, web cam is okay. Physical look is good, when close the laptop looks good with the smooth Toshiba logo on the top. Not raised. The eco utility is a nice feature, although I will probably rarely use it, same goes for the Toshiba bulletin board.
Bad points:
The design is very nice, although the keyboard could be a little neater. (without the spaces around the arrow keys).
Also, when the volume is changed using the keyboard short cuts, there is no visible change. (maybe a volume bar).
The Enter (Return) key could be a little bigger. I seem to keep pressing the '7' on the num pad instead.
