My current laptop suddenly decided to pack up yesterday after I'd finished hoovering (it had a 3000 word review that I was just about to publish). I decided to use this one more for personal use instead, normally it is just for work but I write reviews so frequently and had to use it.
Its screen is large and clear however as I'm used to typing on a netbook with a keybaord much smaller so I find that typing on this laptop and reaching over for certain keys can be more tiring on my fingers. I prefer using a smaller notebook as it is also lighter, this is rather heavy.
I've owned toshiba laptops before and their battery lives don't tend to be great at all. This however could go on for a good 3 hours before wearing out, much better than my Acer (although it is a lot smaller) which is broken. Great for long journeys that you want to pack a film for.
The design is sleek and smooth which I like. Although a number key pad isn't really needed, wasting space and making the laptop unnecessarily bigger. It runs on windows 7 which I love because it is so much faster and easier to use, despite me not being able to function the keypad correctly due to it being an awkward distance from my typing fingers.
I would recommend this laptop for teachers who have to prepare lessons on power point and do a few typing bits every so often but not someone who likes to pump out 1000s of words per hour as it isn't easy to use like that! 8.11/10!
