crap

Bought this laptop in April. The computer started having issues maintaining internet connects in June. The hard drive crashed at the end on July was sent off by Future shop for repair and after waiting 15 " business" days I am told it is not expected back before August 26th at the earliest. That will be six weeks without my new computer that I have owned just over 3 months. Don't buy.

Worth the price

The laptop has never given me any real problems. Runs smooth for the basic applications I run. Excellent computer at a moderate price for a casual user who still wants something that runs smooth. Haven't tried any extreme processes such as gaming, although it works extremely well for basic needs. Only thing I would change is the processor from AMD to intel, as I prefer intel. Processor has still worked well though!

Could be better

So I was looking for a good starter for PC gaming and came across this. It's a nice sleek and sexy looking notebook. There are 2 problems, first the APU. I would have preferred intel with nividia (which is out now) because overall it's better than AMD. Runs Skyrim on high with no problems but there's always that little point when it drops to 20 fps. I can edit photos with photoshop and program with ease. The second problem is that all the applications are running in 32bit mode? I can't seem to fix this but I guess I have to bring it in.

Good laptop for price

Not bad, it does the job for me. I am using this for music production and programming/cad work. Its really speedy. Unlike the many reviews that say so, the sound does not suck (this coming from a music producer). The people who say it does haven't spent the time looking through the settings in the control panel. The keyboard is OK, but no laptops come with good keyboards anymore. Not a fan of windows 8, but 8.1 makes it a bit more bearable, plus a few tweaks I put on my computer. I barely ever have to go to "metro" anymore. Overall I am happy.

for those of you with freezing problems

this laptop for the prize is spot on, my only complaint is windows 8 and 8.1. make sure after you upgrade that all of the drivers are updated and this should stop the freezing isssues. I had these for a bit myself it comes with 8gigs of ram a 1t hdd and a dedicated vid card what do you expect for the money. also i recommend for the novice user a good utility program like iobit or ashampoo winoptimizer, ccleaner these programs will help keep the computer feeling new and they are all very intuitive, easy to use. i game on this tosiba with no probs at all with med- high setting for call of duty,and metal of honor
