Toshiba Laptop - False Rumours

Toshiba Satellite Pro L300
Advantages: Fast, Quality Build
Disadvantages: Heavy, Battery life
I've never had a Toshiba Laptop before, so I thought it would make sense to try one out to get the feel and as a bonus the one I was looking at was on sale the L300 29W.
After purchasing I was nervous, because some of my friends had told me that they burn out after a year and things stop working, this made me worry as I didn't know what to expect.
When I seen the picture of this laptop on the Argos website I thought that this was a great product, it looked slim and light weight, I was wrong, it is not that thin nor light weight.
The keyboard look excellent on the picture like a good typing keyboard, well it is a good typing keyboard once you are use to it, as I had been using laptops with spaced out keys it was strange going to a cramped keyboard. The only difference really with this keyboard is that the style of the letters looks different on the keyboard to other laptops.
Battery Life -
The battery life on the L300 29W is not very good at all. My particular laptop didn't hold charge for a very long period of time, at most I would get about 54 minutes out of a full charge (WIFI, and web browsing)
The laptop its self had an appealing 320 GB hard drive, and a 3 GB of RAM which is was very good at the price paid when I purchased this back in 2009 for £399.99.
The laptop had a screen size of 15.4 in which was perfect for what I needed with checking e-mails, browsing the web, and my son for his school studies. The screen is bright and clear excellent for watching movies, browsing and much more.
The sound on this laptop was of very good quality, you could understand words easy and clearly, it was not muffled in anyway.
The laptop does not come with factory restore discs, you have to burn them yourself via the software preinstalled which can be a bit of a nuisance. The connectivity of the laptop was good, you had a built in webcam, 3 USB ports, a microphone, and earphone jack along with the built in microphone, you had an Ethernet jack, and your disc drive.
Recommend ? -
I would recommend this laptop when I used it, but not now as there is a wider selection available, much cheaper and having more features. This laptop would be good for teens, as a starting laptop for school studies such as class projects etc etc.
Thanks for reading! I hope this has been of interest to you and has helped assist you in your decision.
Summary: Great Laptop In Its Time, Well Worth The Money, Lasted Well.
