Toshiba Netbook OK to begin with...
By JaneVerified Reviewer from Brittany on 1/15/2012

Can't grumble about the harddisk size but a few snags fairly son after obtaining my netbook in june 2011... Pretty soon - within the first month - the webcam stopped working - just while i was on holiday, so no skype calls from the campsite, text only! Takes forever to boot up while it does all its background checks and (windows 7) updates - with it's poor performance running several updates at one time, can spend all day just gettng to 'all sysgtems go''. It can't cope with more than 1 process without becoming really slow! Also the cursor jumps sometimes so typing continues through text already typed meaning you have to stop and type again! Requires pretty high maintenanceof systems - unless leaving eg driver reviver in charge - but careful, driver reviver changes specs, ie browser or preferred programs, loses data, slows down the boot up and takes ages, I don't like it! Serious loss of data as it cleverly attepts to integrate eg photo albums from mobile phones which do not as yet have different filenames, just 'ing201.jpg' or some such - so that different pictures can have the same filename - albeit in different folders - and therefore get deleted. I have lost a great dfeal of data - irreplaceable - before twigging i had to put them in different directories and even then they disappear, unles renamed. size of screen is a nuisance for fluid reading as even with the magnifying tool you can either see the whole page and scroll down with a too-small type or else make it bigger but keep having to move the screen from side to side, interrupting flow of reading a lineat a glance. tablet / keyboard is sometimes insufficiently responsive to light pressure so that the space bar doesn't function and words end up being stuck together! main thing is with such a small RAM it takes ages to go through all updates etc at bootup and to virus scan while loading software. not so good at multitasking as the Qosmio which is bigger faster and even though older more efficient! Plus side - size is handy to travel with and carry around, once all systems loaded it works well, and is very discreet. nice big disk but data loss still an issue!

good value

Good laptop
By iGerliVerified Reviewer from Undisclosed on 11/27/2011

I really like this computer but it is really slow so I cant use it as it should be

Pleasantly surprised.
By farmerjoeVerified Reviewer from Ocklawaha, FL on 11/24/2011

Never thought I would ever need a portable comp. Anyway, I got this notebook mainly to watch Netflix streaming movies, now use it for a lot more: email, web, etc. Battery life is great. Nice display and cool and useful Toshiba apps. Can't beat the price.
