Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Very powerful, very quick.
Bad points:
The chasis is made of cheap plastic and the trackpad is too small and cumbersome to use. The speakers are pathetically bad and even when at full volume they barely produce enough sound to hear anything. The original unit I got had a defective speaker and I had to send it back, the replacement I received came with a dead pixel. It's really unfortunate that Toshiba has lowered their quality standards so much. I have always bought Toshibe in the past but I think that this may have been the last time.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The i5 is quick, keyboard is lovely and tactile to use compared to my previous Dell, great screen size and really good definition, all at a great price.
I chose spec over looks for this first investment in my new start up business and very glad that i did. I think this gives excellent value-for-money and am very happy with my decision thus far.
Bad points:
Not the most portable due to size and weight, but it spends most of the time on the desk with only occasional trips out for presentations etc, so pleased i went this route as the perfect combination.
Battery life isnot great but again works for me.
Sound is a bit weak, but then again its not professing to be a hi-fi!!
Case is a bit plastic'y and a but bland looking.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am very pleased with this laptop having had it a for a month. Excellent battery life for a product of it's specifications with over three hours when not under heavy use. The Ati 5650 and i5 work very well for games with Starcraft 2, Borderlands etc playing well and looking very nice even at high settings, since it provides direct x 11 support I do not anticipate any games being unplayable in the foreseeable future.

The harddrive is conveniently preformatted into two partitions and proves plenty of storage space, while wireless and bluetooth both work well. I mostly Windows 7 is a much better operating system than Vista and a downgrade to XP disk is also provided. I mostly use a gaming mouse, but the touchpad is alright with some interesting multitouch features and the fullside keyboard has a decent layout so an external one is unnecessary.

Overall I have not had any significant problems and with the performance and specifications being very good for the price I can wholeheartedly recommend this laptop
Bad points:
As with all serious laptops is quite heavy, though not nearly as bad as a full desktop replacement I was expecting to need. The glossy screen (which admittedly most laptop manufactures seem to use nowadays) is quite nice to view from the right position, but reflections and finger marks can be annoying. The resolution could also be higher though I am content with the current one and a recovery disk for Windows 7 would also have been nice rather than havin to burn your own.
