The Toshiba Satellite is a nice laptop. It has nice features, great battery life, and comes at a reasonable price. All of the good things about it are, however, over-powered with average performance and one annoying, yet sometimes very upsetting, flaw.
The touch pad is so sensitive and close to where the palm rests, on the notebook, to type. If you're typing fast, and not careful, your palm may accidentally and frequently touch the pad. This results in a whole sentence, previously written, deleted or prompting the typing to continue where the cursor is left, on the screen, which inserts new type written information in an unwanted area.
As a college student who writes a lot of papers for class, this has happened over and over again. It is not a rare occurrence. I've had the notebook for two months now and I'm really getting annoyed with it that I sometimes feel like throwing the notebook across the room to break it on a wall.
As soon as I can, I will get myself a different notebook and give this laptop away to someone not in college who wouldn't be typing important school papers.
