I own several Toshiba Laptops and its the worst of the bunch. I find it gets too hot compared to the other models I have. The Vista that come with it I would have rather not had as I find the machine struggles with it due to its limitations. the 2gb of memory isnt enough to deal with Vista aswell as the fact the processor isnt used properly because its the wrong version (32bit instead of 64bit). It is not a gaming machine but find it handles photography and multimedia easily so maybe it original design was based on use as an office machine. The screen is good quality aswell as the general build quality. The built in SD Card slot is handy although find it gets too hot. It actually melted the glue inside one of my cards.

Handy machine and ok for budget users but wouldnt buy if you want to play games.
