First of all this is the BEST laptop i have got in a long time. i was worried because of its name but i actually found that it works fine, the sales service and support from Toshiba has been brilliant
As the owner of a new Toshiba Satalitte Pro 4320SE Laptop I feel I should boast how impressed I am with it (and Toshiba). I think it is worth buying it and it is also affordable. It's also not a touch screen, which presumably is one of the cost-cuts to bring the laptop in at under £500. It's not a serious issue, in our experience, but it does mean that some of the more tactile elements of Windows 8 are redundant.
I have never had any problems with it,
It was quite cheap and you get more than what you pay for and laptops are all expensive, VERY VERY HAPPY WITH IT
This one is very easy to rate, this thing absolutely sucks! First of all, it has a pentium proccessor 3, which means windows 95 or 98 which is very very very out dated, pretty much, you want the pentium processor 4 with windows xp, or vista. If you don't have a lot of experience in computers and would rather customize a computer to be pimped out, you want windows xp. If you want one for internet and homework and such, window vista is more for you. 64 mega Bites of RAM is horrible! You want 3 or 4 Giga bites. 4 giga bites is 7 to 8 times bigger. Also Ram is how fast your computer runs. And the Hard Drive is 10 Giga Bites..... 10! you can't even download microsoft word with only 10 giga bites. This computer sucks, and you should not even look at it. Get one with 250 or more Giga bites of Hard Drive.
First of all, yes i am a student but i am dyslexic so my LEA bought the compy for me. I could never in a million years pay £2000 for a compy, and if i did i would prefer a desk top so already i am slightly biased about the product. I had lots of additions to the basic computer, i had a DVD drive added and increased the memory to 256, and the processor to a p3 700. I am fairly sure the memnory was originally only 64, which in my feeble opinion is pointless if you have a processor above 500mhz any higher and the memory will slow you down. This is not a bad little laptop, it is probably designed for the business man so it is a bit brick like, (a bit like the nokia 5110, when the cool people want 8210's) it's black and rather heavy. The official Toshiba carry cases are reasonably priced at around £50 and well worth buying the slightly more expensive ones. My gripe is mainly over the after sales care. I bought this computer at the very end of last year and also got 3 years guarentee waranty oojimawotsit thingymajig. I thought this meant that i would easily be able to call Toshiba and get fairly instant help. Because i left my laptop unattended in the library whilst getting a book i had a few of the keyboard keys nicked. I have called Toshiba, contacted my original supplier and tried PC world type places. No-one seems to be able to help me get new keys. I could also do with a few new mouse covers, you know those little green/blue nipple type things. I even resorted to good old fashioned snail mail. My letter got a reply in Feb saying they would send everything within 28 days, i thing june is a little longer than that. Latest development was when i went to PC world again. They said nick them, yes they condoned crime, I asked them to turn around as i went to their toshiba section only to find some other person had beaten me to it on the mouse covers and the keys were all glued down due to a recent increase in thefts. It's a shame
really that things aren't easier after all i have paid a lot for the product and it works really well, I would recommend it to the one careful owner type, it you know you are likely to break occasional fiddly knobs etc you might be better going for a sony VAIO or something similar. Whatever you choose good luck, have fun xx
Toshiba Laptop Satalitte Pro 4320SE As the owner of a new Toshiba Satalitte Pro 4320SE Laptop I feel I should boast how impressed I am with it (and Toshiba). It works fine, is great, the sales service and support from Toshiba has been brilliant (unlike other experiences, especially with Packard Bell). I have never had any problems with it, although I have phoned Toshiba Technical Support twice, once when setting it up and again when I had a few problems with the DVD player on it. Both times they fixed the problem promptly over the phone (the first time they had to phone me back about half an hour later as it was a brand new model and they needed to check something!). It was quite expensive (but you get what you pay for) and laptops are all expensive, about £1999 inc Vat and Delivery, but being the SE model it included a DVD upgrade, 500-600MHz SpeedStep Pentium3 Processor, and double size upgrade 14.24Gig Hard Drive, with internal Floppy Disk Drive and DVD/CD-Rom player.
