Very light, easy to carry. Turns on fast, saves battery. Eventhough it is supposed to have around 8.5 hrs of batery, mine only goes until 6hrs. But the camera is good, the speakers and the mic. It works very good, the only draw back I see is that it comes only with 1Gb, it makes it slow, Im buying 1 GB extra and see how it works. Toshiba, has been my brand since I went to University, always very good!!! and they have technical support world wide or at least in some countries I travel frequently!!

This has been the best little laptop I've ever had. I named it Blue, because of its blue cover, and everybody knows how much I love it. I've had it since September, and it has run just as perfectly as it ever has for four months now - on the exception of the time it fell off of my bed onto the concrete floor and I had to send it into Toshiba, but the customer service was great when I did. I don't like the urges to install Norton - I prefer Avast! - and some random pop-ups from Toshiba that I get, but other than that, it's not much of a hassle. Toshiba's eco-mode is nice as well, as it increases battery life. I'd like to warn that it comes with Windows 7 Starter, which doesn't have the options to change backgrounds, but I added the slide show gadget onto my desktop so that kind of makes up for it. All in all, I love this computer and take it everywhere.

I wanted something light and portable that I can take with me to meetings, etc., to record minutes. I had read reviews about netbooks, and realized that it would be somewhat slower than the high-end computers that are available today. I'm not disappointed, other than it takes a while for it to boot up.

The tablet wars are still on going so I decided to get a netbook. Compared to other brands Toshiba provided the most features for the price. My first observation when using the netbook was that it was much slower than expected. I added 2GB RAM which gave it an expected boost in speed when multitasking. I run a dual OS with Windows 7 Professional 32 bit and Linux Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit. If you are not apposed to running Linux it works perfect on this netbook. I use this netbook for meeting after meeting that requires access to internet apps as well as spreadsheets, databases and other documents. In addition, I use this netbook for couch and bed internet browsing. Very good value!

This is a nice sized netbook especially for travel.However I upgraded to Windows Premium and added an additional 1gb of memory within the first two weeks.I feel it really should come that way.Other than that no complaints.
