Score 9.0/10
Good points:
good spec and extremely light and portable for the screen size and spec.
Bad points:
Battery life definitely lower than advertized, max seems to be about 7 hours with light use (non-continuous word processing and internet browsing). Also wondering how robust the casing/build is - after one month there is a gap between the two halves when the computer is closed, and one of the hinges or at least its casing feels loose. But as long as that doesn't reflect any serious issues, I'll be very happy with this computer.

Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
I didn't like the McAfee security software pre-loaded as it wouldn't allow registration and any other form of communication with McAfee failed to produce an adequate response. So I have abandoned their software.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Can't beat the size and weight for a high performance machine. Battery life is great.
Bad points:
All of the pre-loaded Toshiba applications are unwanted. The "multi touch" touch pad is very tempermental.

All the above rated points...
Battery and weight of machine is really good, even contains an optical drive.
Bad points:
The pre installed Toshiba software was driving me crazy and embedded into the registry, hence hard to remove.

John, London I'm a psychological therapist.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I've been the owner of several laptops around 14 years. Given the state of technology in laptops this Toshiba seems pretty good in terms of size, weight and handling. Shame it wasn't at this stage of release given an intel 5i but frankly the speed of the 3i is good enough for most average-ish users. It seems very much a computer for work (fine by me) with the recreational bits tagged on. This is all I can say for the moment.
Bad points:
There are annoying pop-ups that are internally generated by the operational system which do not seem altogether self explanatory for people like myself with not more than average computer literacy.
