Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Its definitely £800 worth of thinking machine with sound graphics etc
Bad points:
Battery/adapter is enormous
Keyboard takes some getting used to and the inbuilt mouse pad is very annoying to use so definitely use an external mouse.

Adam, Stoke on trent Music, gaming or video fan

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Excellent performance. You can play all the latest games - BF3, Crysis2 etc. without problems.
Sturdy build with high quality finish.
Speakers are Harman/Kardon and provide excellent sound quality with good high end volume.
Keyboard is tactile and friendly to use.
Bad points:
Not my favourite mouse pad in the world, multi touch functions are difficult to perform (click and drag).

CD drive is hard to access, the button is low down on the device so i have to lift the front of the laptop to get my finger to press it (they're not even fat fingers!).

A number of important keys are hidden as secondary functions. (Fn+Ins=Scrl Lck), (Fn+END=PrtScrn), F1-F12 are hidden behind brightness, volume, display and audio playback controls.

Since purchase on 11th September i have had 2 major technical problems in the 2 weeks of ownership. The first laptop i bought stopped working completely and had to be replaced. The replacement unit has developed speaker issues and may also have to be replaced.

The sheer number of bad points and other little niggly details not mentioned here result in the laptops poor rating.

Julie, Winsford Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Superb laptop for gaming (i run several online RPG with no performance issues at all) It also runs skype very well, and this has always been an issue on previous laptops. Performance in general is very good.

Overall, if you want a laptop that can cope with some hungry apps (gaming especially) i can recommend, although that does mean it is not the smallest or lightest on the market. Weigh up what is important to you.. i wanted performance over weight and size so it is ideal for me.
Bad points:
The down side is the amount of unwanted Toshiba software, trying to sell you addional stuff.
Also the really annoying McAffee.. i wish it didn't come installed as standard so i can buy my own decent anti virus software, but in fairness this issue isn't restircted to Toshiba.
Biggest issue i have is that after 3 months the web cam simply stopped working... something to do with not being able to initialise.. worked one day, not the next. On investigating it appears this is likely a design fault,. not impressive in an £800 plus laptop. That said, rather than send it off and be without I simply bought a cheap stand alone cam and it does the trick and in fact is more useful to me than one built into the laptop.
