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

Good Laptop

I have had this laptop since about October 2013 and I liked what I got for the price. I have had quite a few laptops over the years but this one seems to be the best one for what I paid for. Pros: It's lightweight, fast. The screen is bright and the keys, though someone complained about keystrokes, are better than all the laptops I've had. I have had latoptops with key boards that either stuck right off the bat or I didn't like the feel (one HP laptop took quite a bit of strength to type and that was out of the box) It's a quiet laptop. Cons: speakers could be better but even still, I'm only complaining because I like to play my music loud at times. It can get a tad warm and I have had problems with it over heating and freezing at odd times but again, I still have yet to figure out if that was the laptop itself or something to do with a conflicting program and what not. It hasn't happened in a while (knock on wood). Don't like where they put the SD slot but that's something relatively minor. I do photography editing but then again, that comes down the what I paid for and what I was willing to pay for-- I would have to pay more for a laptop that could handle the graphics for photo editing (basically I find it slow to load my editing software, which is made by Corel) Overall, def worth the money if you are looking for a basic computer that will let you surf, work on documents and such. I'm not a gamer, so don't know how it would hold up to gaming. For me, it's good and I wouldn't trade it and would suggest it to others.

Toshiba Satellite Is Great

I find the Toshiba satellite to be a great computer. It is very lightweight for its size of 15.6 inches. I only wish it had 3 USB ports not 2. But other than that, the look, size and operating system is amazing
