I purchased this PC for my daughter, to replace a failed Dell. It's great quality, for the price. I give it my hearty recommendation!
I have read other reviews and I have had no problems whatsoever. I also read another about battery life and my laptop lasts about 3 hours with out charge. I am pretty sure this is a long lasting product.
Restarts itself! This morning I was writing my paper, the computer rebooted itself. I thought maybe it was updates but it was not. Later on in the day, the same thing happened again. I was not happy. Ended up taking it back and going to Staples where the sales associate knew exactly what laptop I was talking about when I explained what happened to her. Looking at the other review, this seems to be a going trend with this laptop.
Ive owned this computer for two weeks now and I love it. It never shuts off on me, and works exactly the way as promised. The only drawback for me is the battery life. You get about an hour of usage and then you have to plug it back into the wall. Other than that the computer is everything it says it is. I love it.
the computers screen went pitch black outta nowhere. i just bought it yesterday and wanted to set it up today and it does not work. the screen went completely black!
This is a great little laptop. We bought at the store where my wife say it. She was looking to replace her old laptop, and loved this one. It has a 14" screen so it's not a large as others and it's in her favorite color PURPLE! We have had it for a few weeks with no problems.
Well,, didn't occured to me that it's PURPLE color.
i'm not too crazy about colors anyway.
but.. purple.. ugh. whatevers. All my
girl friends love the color tho. First of all, the FREE SHIPPING FROM
Walmart is awesome! This is what happened. I have ordered it
on Thursday night (7/22/10) at 10pm.
The transaction was completed on
Expected delivery date was between 7/28 thru 8/2.
Got my laptop delivered on saturday
7/24/10. WOW!!!!! That was a pleasant surprise. That's like one day shipping!!! Love the laptop. Everything is good.
The self-tested battery life is about < 2.5 hours.
I know, it says it will last 3.98 hours or something in the description.
but whatevers. It's little bit less than 5 lbs. i think this is
okay to carry around. only thing i don't like about this is.. the
keyboard. I don't know how to describe it
but it just doesn't feel right. it feels weird when i type.
i guess i have to get used to it first. It leaves a fingerprints on the keyboard
because the keyboard is like,, 100%
shiny plastic. =) FYI.
Purchased this laptop for school, and after reading all the reviews and seeing this product in store I decided to buy it. I love everything about it! Not too big, not too small. Just perfect :)
if you're looking for a laptop for school, then this is the one. i love the wi-fi, and all the other functions it has. the mouse pad drives me a little crazy, that's because i'm used to the actual mouse on the side, and thank goodness for the mouse pad lock feature, otherwise i'd go insane when typing xP
but like i said, it's a great comp for school. i haven't used it to it's fullest yet, but i use it everyday and so far it's still running great :]
* no external volume control
* tiny, not so loud speakers
* 14.0 is a small screen, but manageable for the price. make sure you know exactly how big a 14.0 screen is, because you might be disappointed
* ambiguous lights to indicate power,charging, and etc
*small hard drive
* CD/DVD drive doesnt seem extremely stable, but is sufficient Pros
* nice glossy violet with a beautiful helios design
* great sturdy mouse buttons and smooth touch pad
* very fast
*normal sized keyboard
* very portable (light and small)
* great price
* good for college students
Everything I expected and more. Fast, easy to load with 4g of memory. My daughter loved the color and the easy use of the keyboard. I did buy her a smaller laptop mouse to match the computer, but she hasn't seen the need to use it yet. A really good buy for everything that was included!
When I first saw this laptop on the shelf, my only thought was how cute it's glossy purple casing was. I nearly disregarded it because of its cutesy exterior, but noted its specs since it fell into my desired price range. After researching it and the other computers I found which were in my price range, I realized that this was the computer for me. It doesn't have the most memory (but I can buy an external hard drive at a later date if necessary) or RAM, but it does pack quite a decent bit of memory and speed inside a pretty package. After a week of using it, I am absolutely in love with it--it runs quickly, doesn't get unbearably hot (my Dell got ridiculously hot even when hooked to a cooling mat), and looks sharp sitting on my desk. It is small enough to be ultra-portable (a BIG plus for a student!), but not annoyingly so, as I find the 10" screens of netbooks to be. My ONLY complaint is that it did not come with Microsoft Office installed, but that was the case with virtually every laptop I considered (minus a Dell model, which cost more with it pre-installed than this laptop plus the purchase of Microsoft Office). The only other issue I can see anyone having is the color, but I love it! I'm very, very pleased.
The only thing I wish for is a little bigger screen than 14" but it's not a dealbreaker! I love the type on the keypad and how you can turn off the finger mouse so when you're typing, you don't accidentally hit the pad with your wrist which screws up your screen. I love the purple color as it jazzes it up vs. those boring black or gray ones. The newer, more expensive laptops have more ram and memory but this is plenty for most people and the higher counts are overkill.
Good starter PC, for the price, it provides a decent processor, relatively ample RAM, and a good sized screen. Not too small, not too big, just right if you have a college students just getting started.
I love my Laptop my favorite color and it does smudge the Dell 15.6 is better but it is small and I would suggest buying a mouse for it. but I love mine.
this has everything I need without all the other downloads that are offered through home shopping. I got just what I needed, and in the color purple. I think Toshiba is a good name and the only thing I found is I needed a pair of ear buds for using the web cam. I just couldn't hear very well. I don't know if this is the case with a more expensive laptop, but on video's the sound is fine.
To be honest I bought it because it was purple. But I have to admit I love it. The keyboard is so easy to manage, much more than the desktop we have. And the wireless enables me to sit comfortably when using it. I have rheumatoid arthritis, especially in my hands, so all this is important to me.
excelent product thing recomend
