Q & As

Toshiba Winner I love using this computer. It's quick and it's steady and it's gorra lorra storage! I love Windows 8.1. It's intuative and stable. Altogether the computer and OS are a joy to use. I love John Lewis for selling it to me. That's a lorra love I know but then it's a lorra computer for the money. 02 September 2014
My new toshiba This Toshiba computer is a good windows8.1 laptop. Everything is listed and easy to find, comes with lots of preloaded apps. Easy to customise and use. Good 8gb ram and 1TB. Attractive coloured keyboard and casing 22 July 2014
Exactly what was required. After using my old Toshiba for the past five years, this is such an improvement, it looks good, it was the right price and boy is it fast. I needed the extra memory to down load all my photos, I'll never fill this, it is exactly what I required. I'm new to Windows 8.1 but starting to get to grips with it. I can highly recommend this laptop. 21 July 2014
i3 6GB Variant - only 1 flaw I got the cheaper i3 variant with HD4400 graphics, a 1TB HDD and 6GB of RAM - almost the same but a slightly slower CPU. Great piece of kit - very fast compared to my 4 yr old HP pavilion with an Athlon CPU. Scored 2300 points on '3D Mark 06' CPU test, but just 3815 on the GPU score. Calculates 'SuperPi' 1M digits, in just 22 seconds, compared to 50 secs on my old HP, and 18 seconds on my - albeit aging - gaming PC (Q6600 at 3.2GHz). So not bad for a lappie ! Rarely goes over 50 degrees core temp, and only severe loads such as encrypting files takes the CPU over 20-30% of max usage. Fan at 50% is inaudible. My old HP 6735s, sounded like a Harrier Jump Jet, even at idle ! 1080p video flies along at 20% use and temps rarely exceed 55 degrees with fan speed at just 50%. Easy to get into and swap out hard drive or RAM - takes 5 minutes to get the back off. Will be easy to clean the fan if necessary late ron. ONLY one fly-in-the-ointment though ! The track pad sometimes has a mind of its own. But, getting into the mouse properties allows you to adjust various parameters and sensitivity which has made it better. But the cursor will freeze sometimes if loading webpages etc. If you use a separate keyboard and mouse - as I do quite a lot - won't be an issue. Can't play 3D games either - but 2D scrolling-type games a just fine. Overall, a great media laptop... looks nice, good keyboard, but you need a little patience sometimes with the track pad - but it is worth sussing-out how to make the various adjustments, and it will improve matters. Oh, and finally: Windows 8.1 !! ?? Lots of people moan about it - I love it. After a few hours you'll wonder how you managed without it. Yes, some stuff has moved around, but everything is still there, plus some. They have made a bunch of improvements and overall, it's worth getting. 19 July 2014
Compact laptop with all the features a user would need. Light weight and easily portable, with a good sized screen, for a slightly older user who now needs to wear reading glasses. Good for business and leisure use. Very pleased with the purchase and the 5 year guarantee. Thank you 08 July 2014
Good value/quality laptop The title sums up this product in a nutshell. It came with a price reduction and extended warranty, and has not had any glitches at all so far. Highly recommended. 08 July 2014
Great! Powerful laptop especially for the price. The huge 1TB hard drive is very useful, however I have an external hard drive which keeps the laptop clear from all of the music, documents etc. Purchased for my dad who uses it mainly for work purposes. It's lightweight and the battery life is quite good too. Definitely a recommended laptop for the price! 19 June 2014
