3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -specs on paper are amazing and it delivers as expected in real world performance.
-speakers are really good, but i hardly use them

Cons: -screen. i have no idea what toshiba was thinking and why i didn't think either. i should have returned this unit once I opened it. it just looks terrible. its not the performance. there is no debating the color, contrast, etc looks beautiful. its just the orientation size. the aspect ratio is like they stretch out HD standard when it was perfectly fine 16:9. this is the sole reason why I regret my purchase. the picture on newegg, honestly, does not grasp the concept I am trying to communicate. Look up 16:9. Then look up the aspect ratio of this computer (or calculate it by the max resolution). Look at a standard 16:9 computer at Best Buy and picture cutting the computer in half horizontally. Throw away the top half. That is this computer.

-surprisingly the battery isn't as great considering you have 4th gen i5, no optical drive, 14" screen. I'm not saying its terrible. But I expected more from the i5 cpu. The battery usage feels like you are using a standard 17" laptop. I guess Toshiba downgraded their battery size as the computer gets better.

-Toshiba support. Absolutely terrible. I feel like never buying bland laptop from the major laptop manufacturers again. Specifically when it comes to the driver support. I knew the capabilities of this laptop. I was trying to play Titanfall. Other people who use laptop circumvent their graphically bug issue buy updating the driver. Toshiba takes ages to send an update and you can't get one directly from Intel either. again, idk what i was expecting in the first place.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had a problem with the CPU fan or heat.

So the only reason why I didn't 1 egg this unit is simply because the performance. Honestly, the time I used it with a monitor and extra keyboard+mouse, it felt like a good pseudo-desktop. I would not use this as an actual laptop though. So if you have or can get a monitor + usb mouse and keyboard, and you are willing to only use it as a laptop once every blue moon, I would suggest this computer. But its not something you would take to school, work, etc.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat ultrabook

Pros: The resolution on this ultrabook is out of this world, it's incredibly readable. The sound out of the built-in speakers is the best that I've ever heard for internal speakers. The speed makes it rival desktops. I never thought that I'd see that day. With the built in battery it only weighs four pounds.

Cons: So why only four stars. This CPU flirts with 60-65 C. There is an explicit warning by the manufacturer not to let this sit on your lap for fear of serious burns. Also your toasted lap would block the vents making it even hotter. Therefore you are going to have to buy a VERY GOOD quality multi - fan cooler to run under it. I have a very high quality one and it drops the CPU temperature down to 45-50 C which is quite satisfactory.

Other Thoughts: This is a wonderful ultrabook, worth every penny and then some. Just get a good fan cooler to run under it. It's too bad about the heat, but this is a must buy. Viva Toshiba.
