5 out of 5 eggsAmazing value

Pros: I've had this laptop for about four months now, and it is easily my favorite piece of technology I've owned yet. I did a lot of browsing when I was looking to invest in a new laptop, and this laptop was the only one that had literally every feature I was looking for.

-Blazing fast in games, I've played LOTRO, Sims 3 with a half dozen expansions, Star Wars The Old Republic, Skyrim, and GTA V on it, all on highest settings and it keeps up seamlessly. Granted I still use my desktop when I'm looking for longer gaming sessions, but that's really just a personal preference - there's little by way of performance gain.
-I'm loving the touchscreen for university classes, it's great for taking notes in OneNote. It allows for the perfect mix of typing notes while still getting to draw out figures and graphs.
-I've surprisingly been enjoying Windows 8.1 - I was concerned, as I have heard many a complaint about Windows 8 since it's release. This is the first laptop I've owned with it, and I have really enjoyed the apps and organization. Have not had a single complaint about it.
-Cosmetically, it looks sleek, I love the case and the keyboard on it. Very ergonomic and much easier to type on than my last laptop that had chiclet keys.
-Battery life is plenty sufficient for getting me through 3 classes back to back to back (~3.5+ hrs) and even for about 45 minutes of heavy gaming (w/o dimming screen, lowering graphics, etc.)

Cons: -Price - this was definitely in the higher end of my price range. But for the features it comes with, I still found it to be an amazing value. I'm totally satisfied with it and would make the same decision again 100x over.
-Occasionally, I lose usage of the trackpad. I still haven't been able to quite figure out if it's a matter of dirt or debris getting on the touchscreen or the trackpad itself. But it doesn't happen frequently enough for me to dock an egg.
-Would be nice if it had included a microfiber cloth for the touchscreen which does pick up smudges, or even better included a stylus (which I highly suggest investing in for one of these laptops). Both are fantastic accessories to invest in. Again not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: Could not suggest this laptop more!

5 out of 5 eggsFast Laptop Good Value

Pros: 2 important factors led me to purchase this Toshiba Laptop, 1) The Intel i7 and 2) The GeForce Graphics that would not use "Shared Ram".
Both these factors make this a fast computer. I also purchased 2 8GB RAM chips at the same time to bring the total RAM to 16GB. (MAX for this Laptop. $149, not a bad deal.)
The Backlit Full Keyboard with number pad is perfect. As far as Win 8, we are quite used to it and do not see the drawbacks so many pretend to see. Win 8 is fast and easy to use once one puts a very small time in getting used to it. The Touch screen is very useful for Win 8, but my wife and I are still so used to suing a mouse we keep one handy.
Also, if you have not experienced the speed of USB 3.0 ports, just wait. I'm a photographer that uses a USB 3.0 Card reader, and the speed is so much faster then the old USB 2.0. Enjoy.

Cons: Slightly heavy (But expected with the size and full keyboard.)
Puts out a small amount of heat. (Again, expected.)

Other Thoughts: This is a powerful computer that can handle all task in today's world.

2 out of 5 eggsSlow

Pros: Touchscreen/BackLit Keyboard are a +...

Cons: Keyboard isn't that responsive to light keystrokes, you have to kinda mash them to register a key being hit. It is terribly slow, I've been using an SSD for years, and I think going back to HDD is why I'm noticing this. But, this is horrible. 3 Minute Boot Times, Skype taking an additional 3-4 minutes to Sync. Harman/Kardon gets distorted easily, not at MAX Volume. Touchpad isn't very responsive. Nvidia Panel crashed several times while updating, along with several other programs.

Other Thoughts: I'm not going to bother to send it back, I'll live with it and make my upgrades as I see the need.
