Pros: Laptop is whole lot faster than the previous laptop it replaced. Heat output is very acceptable. Fan noise is nonexistent. Windows 8 runs fine after some minor tweaking. Laptop is used for a typical non-gaming use. I didn't think I could get a decent quad core, 17 inch laptop for around this price so the price is good. I paid double for the previous laptop it replaced. I bought this laptop for my wife and she is happy so I am happy.
Cons: Windows 8 took a while to figure out. Norton Antivirus slows down the system, once I turned it off, the laptop runs a whole lot faster. Had to remove some Toshiba bloatware and updated a bunch of patches.
Keyboard could be nicer but cannot complain due to the price. I am spoiled by Thinkpad keyboards.
Other Thoughts: This laptop replaced my wife's 5 year old Toshiba 17 inch laptop that was running Vista, with not enough memory and slow as hell. The fan would frequently come on and revs up like an airplane.
The difference is night and day. When this thing turns on, there's no sound. The heat level is just barely warm. It's also a bit lighter and a lot thinner than the old laptop. It's much faster which makes web browsing a whole lot more enjoyable than waiting for the pages to load and render.
Even though the CPU says its 1.9Ghz, it will turbo boost the frequency up to 2.8Ghz whenever workloads increase so do not worry about the lower Ghz compared to other models.
