It us unbelievably fast, this much horsepower usually costs twice as much and the screen is beautiful. Flexible downgrades and Toshiba Win7, Win8 drivers downloadable from the wrapped link tailing this review. You can install Linux onto an SD card and boot from SD without aggravating UEFI.
And a usuable keyboard, the larger 17inch Satellites are typo-city, this "mid size" 15 inch system has an agreeable keyboard ALONG WITH THE SEPARATE NUMBER PAD / whether you're an accountant, you'll appreciate the num pad the first time you need it#
It boots in 8 seconds from power to signon, without an SSD and even after downloading the initial 400+ megabytes of critical updates#
Information Technology candidates, science students will embrace the ability to simultaneously kick off virtual machines, the Toshi loves Oracle VBox, VMware and even Microsoft "xpMode" #VirtualPC##
It comes with bloatware like every other laptop, its easier to remove than other laptops#
If you don't want the included 8#1, or 8 or even any version of Windows, you'll learn just how compatible Toshiba's are with Linux and "Hackintosh", Toshiba is one of the few manufacturers offering centralized resources for Linux systems, ####AND YOU CAN SKIP THE UEFI / GRUB hassles when you install your Linux build onto and boot completely from the SD card#
Games#### yeah, Battlefield 4 Reloaded, some have complained about twingy sound, Toshiba fixed it with an updated SoundEnhancement package requiring installation as an Admin, no removal, no BIOS updates as others have incorrectly suggested#
Win8 Audio Enhancement
Win8#1 Audio Enhancement
Win7 / #32bit Windows 7 drivers are available, but why would you#
