I had problem with my Dell laptop and I was looking to get something different. I searched and I found this one. 17.3" is large enough to see and work. Very fast. Sound is just perfect. I am happy also price was very Good, under $850 total.
1. I love the big screen - 17" is really nice and clear.
2. the battery life is really short - 2.5 hours of regular work and it's cooked.
3. Windows 8 really is a bad product. I was able to find a program that allows me to go back to Win7 style - what a relief.
4. The fan noise when the laptop is on idle (screen Saver is on) is very load. It idles between VERY load and quiet. This should have been fixed long time ago (my wife has a Toshiba with the same problem, and that laptop is 4+ years old). FIX the FAN NOISE ASAP.
Over all - a good laptop.
I have used Toshiba before. However, it was with Vista. This is much better with Windows 8. I don't use battery, so my rating is just a guess.
My fifth consecutive Toshiba laptop, and it lives up to my expectations for quality and reliability.
The laptop is great, but I do not like Windows 8, I may go back to Windows 7
