"Toshiba Satellite l500 great laptop computer"

I have had had my toshiba satellite computer for about a year now! When i first bought the computer i was worried because of the low price i got it for. Well to my surprise this laptop computer has been amazing in many different ways! It loads so quickly and has so many great features like toshiba back up and more. Another great thing about the toshiba satellite l500 is the battery life. Everyone around me complains about having the laptop that is dead or dying but mine is always charged. I love my toshiba so much i plan on getting another after i am through with this one. I would definately recommend this computer to anyone who is looking for a regular home computer that is extremely durable and looks as good as it does.

    Welcome to Ciao. this isn't bad for a first review, but more detail (and more of your opinion on why it's so good, and how it compares to others) will get you hiugher ratings. If you decide to add more info, let me know and i'll take another look for you.
