Overall not a bad laptop but

Graphics are a huge disappointment . When I get some time, I will have to see if I can tweek it. Left click (as another reviewer said) is hard to manouver. I find the keyboard is easy to use. USB loads quickly and laptop boots up quickly. Loading YouTube videos was fine. It is lightweight. Doesn't feel cheap like some laptops. I'm NOT going to write what I think of windows 8 because it has nothing to do with the laptop lol. I only gave it a 3 because of the graphics. Graphics looked pretty good in the store.

Not impressed

Bought this laptop last week as my other Win 7 Acer Aspire kept getting files system errors / corrupted. I use it as a multi purpose business machine / entertainment unit, as I travel often away from home. I like the large hard drive, the light weight, optical drive, price and its decent style. But otherwise this is my least favorite laptop I have ever owned, having owned at least one since 1998, including 4 Toshibas. Your key stroke need to be precise, has the keys are "hard" to push down, if not, your writing is missing one or two letters per sentences. The touch pad on the other hand is super sensitive, and hokeeey. There is no defined right or left click buttons, so your always fighting with clicking, and trying to keep the pointer on the area you are trying to click on. I thought Windows 7 was good for me, it was easy to navigate modern and familiar, uncomplicated. Well, Windows 8.1 pre-installed is a total mess. Completely un-intutive, and designed for Microsoft's benefit, not the users. Win 8 seems designed to run on a tablet, which this laptop is not nor does it have the touch screen. Note to microsoft, i already have a tablet, and its not running Windows. All I need is a simple computer to run productive programs so I can get stuff done in my day. Another thing, not sure what the computer does, but its always hanging / lagging, not long, but just enough for you to notice and lose your momentum while doing something. With all the updated hardware on this machine, you would think that running the software I've been running for years would be faster - well you'd be wrong. Not impressed over all with either Toshiba's or Microsoft's work on this one.

fully functional system

Have this system for 2 weeks. Everything runs smoothly for word processing and internet explorer which is all I use the machine for. The only down side is the windows 8.1 which I am not a fan off. Given 8.1 is now standard for an OS there isn't much that can be done about it. Overall, I am impressed with the system performance and would recommend it.

Good laptop for the price

Got this laptop as a open box special for [PRICE] . Been working great so far (had it 4 weeks now). Pro's: - quadcore CPU @2ghz -2.8Ghz turbo - dedicated GPU (HD8570M 1Gig) **note: this can be crossfired with APU processor - CD/DVD ROM **note: you can remove this and buy a hard drive tray to have 2 hard drives, see link http://hddcaddy.com/en/toshiba-hdd-caddy/666-toshiba-satellite-s50-a-hdd-caddy.html - Has software that will cache windows hard drive files to ram ( this can be set to 512 meg to 2 gigabytes) - trackpad is good (recessed so you don't touch it accidentally as much) - aluminum display cover and palm rest - 2 USB 3.0 ports Cons: - Dull 720P display - speakers are awful (does not bother me as its a work laptop) - 1 terabyte hard drive is slow (will be replaced with a hybrid drive) - battery is built into the laptop (have to take the back cover off to get at it!) **note: if the laptop crashes to the point you do have to reset the battery, there is a pin hole on the under side of the laptop next to the sd card slot to reset the laptop - metal palm rest heats up when laptop is under load. other notes: Some people had issues after they upgraded to windows 8.1. I did not have any issues. You have to update all the Toshiba drivers and software after the OS upgrade. Toshiba has an update utility that will do this for you automaticaly
