Upgrading this computer
Pros: Well made and priced reasonably for a major brand.
Cons: It's was made more difficult that it needed to be to upgrade major components like hard drives, memory and batteries.
Other Thoughts: I own this and a few other Toshiba notebooks and until I recently retired I also serviced computers and other electronics.

Really Bad Idea for Long-Term
Pros: Packs plenty of nice features into an affordable package.
Cons: Most laptops/notebook PCs -- most, not all....at least until recently -- were somewhat User-Upgrade-able, in that you could (almost always) upgrade the RAM/memory &/or the hard drive -- either for one that had more storage (like 1TB or greater), or was faster (like 7200rpm, or an SSD), or both. Also, with the exception of Apple/MAC -- but we're talking about PCs, not MACs so that really goes without saying -- you could always replace the battery in your notebook PC, whenever you wanted.
Other Thoughts: With netbooks (which are basically very simple, cheap notebook PCs) & tablets/e-readers (like the iPad, the MS Slate, or the Goodle Nexus, for example) there's usually, at best, a 50-50 chance it's designed so that the user can not replace the battery, but until recently, the biggest thing that set them apart from a laptop/notebook PC was that, even if you couldn't have access to upgrade either the RAM/memory &/or the Hard Drive --- which was usually always a guaranteed option, until recently --- you could Always replace the battery, whenever you wanted, but you can't with this one. I could've settled for not being able to upgrade the RAM or HD, but the battery is a deal-breaker for me. To me, it's like having to buy a new car when the one you have (& recently purchased) eventually runs out of gas, instead of being able to replace its spent fuel with fresh -- it's expensive, it costs you way more in the end, & it's a huge waste of good electronic components. So, unless you are either a sucker, or rich, I'd suggest you buy something you can always & easily replace the battery on.
