Great laptop. Easily runs multiple program's within the adobe suite. Nice keyboard layout. Hdmi output a bonus.
Bad points:
When arrived the screen surround was loose and not flush with the screen. Easily fixed by myself, but others may be concerned by this?

zubair, london General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
overall good quality
lightweight
bright screen and good quality

this is one of the few laptops that come with windows 7 installed, so if you dont want to upgrade to windows 8 then this is a good laptop to go for. it still comes with a DVD with windows 8 in case you change your mind and wish to upgrade.
Bad points:
only bad point is the keyboard. if you read other reviews you will see people complaining that the keyboard is a bit bouncy (if you press the keys in the center of the keyboard, the keyboard flexes a bit.) so it does appear to be low quality and there are other laptops with much better keyboards. Personally it doesnt bother me much, I dont notice it when touch-typing,

Bad points:
The laptop gives the impression of being mass produced without any serious thought or care. The keyboard edges are sharp and painful to rest hands on for short periods of time. The feel is hard and unpleasant.

Keys stick and fail to connect. Consequently there is increased spelling mistakes, spaces or lack of, unable to select and highlight doe cut and paste or delete purposes.

The key board springs making typing harder and conveying cheapness. The separate number pad is almost irrelevant. It's use dependent on other programmes allowing the pad to work effectively.

The design lacks thought, customer user friendliness and conveys cheapness in production. I bought Toshiba because my previous laptop a Pro Satellite was apart from its weight a delight to work with. This machine I bought because it had Windows 7 and I was scared into rejecting Windows 8. I overspent by £200.00. When I come to replace this machine Toshiba will have to sell really hard to convince me to buy.

Garry, Bath General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Bought this for my son as a basic gaming laptop. The laptop is pretty fast and on Minecraft he gets 60fps so not bad. Compact and light with decent screen suitable for most home computing tasks.

For the money the performance of the laptop with the i5 processor is pretty impressive.

Main plus point is that it did not come with Win 8 pre-installed!
Bad points:
Keyboard is fairly nasty and can only be described as very 'bouncy'. It is ok for short-term use but would not like to write a dissertation on it... We bought an HP650 i3 laptop at the same time and there is absolutely no comparison with the keyboards - HP is not as powerful but has significantly better build quality in my opinion.

The touchpad has stopped working a couple of times when using an external mouse which is easy to recover but needed some web research. For best results use an external keyboard and mouse.

The trade-off on build quality versus performance worked for our requirements but worth consideration before purchase. I would choose something different if you are looking for a business laptop.
