Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent screen quality really easy to read in bright light conditions. Nice feel to the touch pad and really good sound quality and picture quiality on skype web cam is excellent. Face recognition soft ware works OK but a bit gimmicky and seems easier and quicker just to use password. Overall happy wiith my choice but wish I had seen it before buying off the internet. It is quick and very responsive so overall pretty happy with my choice bought and seems good value for money.
Bad points:
With hind sight would probably not have got the version with numeric key pad my old HP didnt have one and I dont like the slightly off centre feel of the key board but after a couple of weeks Im used to it and it is handy when using spread sheets.
I bought off the internet and thought the top of the lap top was actually steel (like on eof my older Toshibas I had a couple of years ago) but when it arrived realised it was "steel effect" so not quite what I expected but it looks fine and I guess plastic is lighter - overall the good out weigh the bad and you get alot of laptop for the price!

I particularly like the keyboard and the clarity of the screen. The docking station is neat, compact and very easy to set up.

The battery life between charges is quite short compared to my previous computer which was not a Toshiba.
