My wife purchased this Toshiba for me as a early Christmas. I fell in love with it. I am writing my Memories and is great using Office Word. I up graded the ram to 2 GB and wish that Toshiba would make that standard. It is blazing with 2GB. I know it increased the speed more than double. I have owned 6 or 8 Toshiba laptops and have never had a problen. I have 2 big laptops that my wife and we currently use, but will say since the netbook I haven't used mine much. Overall and Performance would be a 5 if the 2GB memory came preinstalled. I think the battery life is about 6 hours as I had just over 1 hour left after 5 hours using word.

WINDOWS STARTER DOES NOT PERFORM>>>>>>>

I was a little uneasy about buying such small laptop/netbook. But after purchasing it and toying with it, I find it very easy to use. Its not fast but its not slow, I would say average to run programs. I like the weight and size, easy to carry along. I do travel so I find it a very good product!! I owned a i-pad but broke the screen when traveling and it was in the protective case. So I switched and I find this netbook is worth its weight and gold!!! Thanks Toshiba!!

I bought this to use while hiking so that I could get my exercise while having to be on call at work. It easily fits in my backpack. I am still trying to adapt to the keyboard, but otherwise it works just as I expected. The battery, so far, gets me about 5 hours of time -- more than enough for a 4 hour hike with only a few support calls. What I'd like to change -- *the AC adapter needs to be L shaped --easily unplugs while using it during charge time * built-in webcam adjustable somehow... When using on a desk it is fine, but when using it on my lap I can't adjust the screen so that the webcam shows my face at the same angle that I can read the screen.

I am pleased overall with my Toshiba netbook but will comment on a few good, and not so good, features. First, the display is very crisp and legible--5 stars. The keyboard is full size and quite functional, but the keys are flat, rather than concave like my desktop keyboard, and it not as easy to touch type--3-1/2 stars. The battery won't run the 8 hours claimed unless you use the Toshiba Eco mode, which dims the screen too much for me. In normal mode it will probably go 6 hours, which is enough for my purposes--4 stars. There is no indent or release for the lid, so raising the screen is a bit of a pain--3 stars. The top is a matte blue that won't show fingerprints and is tactile enough to 'hold' objects like an external mouse when I move the netbook around closed. Plus the blue color is very appealing--5 stars. The speed of operation (particularly booting up) is a little disappointing, even after I upgraded to 2Gb RAM; not sure it was worth the cost to do that. In the standard configuration (1Gb RAM) it is slower than I would like (but this is probably typical of Atom netbooks in general)--3 stars. Lastly, the price seems reasonable compared to the competition--4 stars.
