3 out of 5 eggsDecent, some flaws

Pros: Fast, nice style

Cons: Jacked up wireless adapter

Other Thoughts: This is my main laptop. I received it as a gift.

Despite what a previous poster said, I run it with Linux Mint 14--I never even agreed to the Microsoft EULA. So Linux is definitely workable, although you need to install adapters for the ethernet and wifi cards.

The wifi card, a Realtek 8723, is a real disappointment. It's totally new, so Realtek doesn't even list it on their website. They've been rolling driver updates out for months, and the problems they get are not just on Linux; Windows users also report serious connectivity problems with this thing. On the Toshiba website, there are reports of customer service reps telling people to RMA their laptops and to pick up another model that uses a different wifi adapter. Sounds like a disaster to me. Note that my adapter worked for awhile, then inexplicably stopped working unless I did a hard reboot. Eventually I gave up on the RTK 8723 (Linux won't provide native support for a few more kernel revisions, I believe) and picked up a cheap, tried and true Intel chip. Jeez that wifi card was a nightmare.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Laptop

Pros: I love this laptop. The Intel Core i7 3630QM is so blisteringly, amazingly fast. It is so nice to see 8 cores on my laptop and desktop both. With hyperthreading, this laptop registers as 8 cores. 4 Cores and 8 Threads. I am currently Getting over 8,000 on passmark on this cpu. The laptop has an overall great feel and a great touchpad and keyboard. I love the Intel HD 4000 graphics as well. I managed to snag this beauty up while it was on sale and it was worth every penny. I don't know what everyone is complaining about; I love this laptop.

Cons: NONE WHATSOEVER YET

4 out of 5 eggsLooking good

Pros: Quite fast for a laptop. No problems so far. Should play games on low settings. Browses internet lightning fast...as well as my homebuilt desktop that has an i7 920 and GTX 680.

Cons: A little on the heavy/bulky side but normal for this type of machine.

Other Thoughts: I have the version of this laptop that has a 1T HDD. (S855-S5381) but otherwise everything is the same.

1 out of 5 eggswindows 8 sucks so does newegg

Pros: Shipped fast.

Cons: What a pile of junk.
1. The keyboard sucks, very unwieldy.
2. F1-F12 keys are merged with functional keys.. so when u have to press alt+f4 you actually change your screen resolution. to press F keys you have to press function button.
3. WinBlows 8 is designed for a tables not a desktop. In some places you have to press a combination of keys to simulate a swipe or finger position.
4. Its extremly hard to uninstall it , the combination of uefi and their new bootloader and secure boot setting make it a pain to install linux.
4. not all drivers are supported in linux ( i.e wireless card)

Other Thoughts: NewEgg will never have my business again. The standard return policy DOES NOT allow a return unless there is a manufacturing defect. The shipped it fast , but so what .. if i can't return it once i handle a laptop and realize that its not for me their quick turnaround is meaningless. so stay away !!
