3 out of 5 eggsQuick, but lacking essential functions

Pros: Turns on and loads quickly, has everything I need for a portable, fast laptop for classes.

Cons: The touchpad occasionally stops working, and has had this problem from moments after I unpackaged it.

There is no way to access the BIOS and thus no way to change the settings on the F keys. They come default with the special functions (Brightness control, volume control, etc), but I can't set the default to regular F keys. In order to perhaps refresh a page I'd need to hold down Fn. The Toshiba HWsetup also doesn't give the option for switching the default setting of the function keys.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much you pay for what you get. I got this for around $430 tax and shipping included, touchpad problem is fixed with a mouse, only problem left is the F keys, but aside from light gaming I don't use them often.

1 out of 5 eggsRinky-dink

Pros: Inexpensive, nice screen. No frills but perfectly adequate for a lower end model. I typically use my desktop so only bought this for travelling purposes. Theoretically seems entirely suited to that purpose, except....

Cons: The touchpad. At first I thought it was just cheap and was slightly peeved that it was a regression from the four previous Toshibas I've had - shouldn't technology progress? It was so uncomfortable and jerky to use that for the limited amount I did use this laptop in the past month I kept the mouse plugged in. But the mouse is really only good while I'm at home, and that's not why I bought the laptop.
Just went away for Labor Day weekend, leaving the mouse at home, and found the touchpad wasn't just cheap, it was defective. The touchpad and the keys, at first unreliable, are now completely unresponsive. Of course, I purchased it on August 1st and didn't have an opportunity to return it until today so I'm out $400. Thanks Toshiba!
