Decent laptop for the price.

Have had this laptop for 2 years and it is very good for a casual PC user. Very good at viewing movies, Internet surfing, non graphic-intensive gaming, and social-networking.

My dad bought this laptop in '09 and it does pretty good for the price. However, if you're looking for a great gaming laptop, this probably isn't the right one for you. It couldn't run most of my games without major lag spikes that went down to nearly 5 fps or less. It even went extremely bad on Minecraft, which I had thought would work on most laptops. However, when the lag is gone, it can run games at a great amount of fps. So the lag is not constant. The laptop also freezes up frequently and crashes once in a while. It will freeze, then stop responding for over 30 minutes until you're left with no other choice but the take out the battery and restart it. It also overheats a lot and made my room feel like an oven. I eventually got a cooler and the overheating problem was fixed. Next, though, the charger died randomly one day. I then got a new charger for a small price and it worked fine. Overall, this laptop has worked well enough to help me carry on with my school work and such. It's definitely not good for gaming, but I am not a heavy gamer so it isn't a major problem. It is a good laptop, but I've seen better. It starts getting the major problems at least a year after buying it.

This does everything I want it to. Runs games and other software holds up to the abuse of being a family computer plus being carried to school. The only bad thing I can say about this laptop is that it came with norton once that was removed no trouble at all. I suspect that those that gave this a bad review don't know much about laptops.

i've had it siince june 2010 and since i've never had a problem with it, i use it everyday the battery life is about 2 hours, but with some software it can last for more than 3 hours. for the performance it's incredible how this laptop can run big and new games such us Call Of Duty (mw1, mw2 and also mw3). for those who take care for their computers, this modest toshiba will be the best computer you have ever had;

I am a web designer. This computer has been my main computer for about a year. It overheats regularly and the battery life is about a hour. Hard drive and memory isn't a lot, but its ok for a basic computer. Overall, I would give it about a 3.5 out of 5. Haven't really had any problems except battery overheats and not enough memory.
