Save laptop power with Eco Utility, a power saving application designed by Toshiba to encourage better energy efficient usage. Accessed via the Windows taskbar, once activated you can monitor and begin saving power consumption immediately. A power consumption chart can be displayed to show the increase and decrease of power consumption when the Eco Mode is active.

Eco Utility allows the user to work in a power-saving Eco Power Plan. Once Eco mode is activated, the system works accordingly to set parameters, such as automatically dimming the display brightness, disabling LED and keyboard backlighting, and reducing the time before activating the hard drive sleep mode.

The spec of this machine is impressive - Haswell quad core i7 coupled with 8gb RAM makes short work of most tasks. The only thing holding it back is the 5400rpm HDD, but I'm planning to upgrade to a SSD when the prices come down a bit.
Even with the slow HDD, Windows 8 boots within 20 seconds and is ready to go within a minute. The benchmarks are impressive due to the processor and RAM, I use it for HD video editing with no problems.
Let's not forget the Nvidia GT740m graphics card - I have run CS Global Offensive on high settings and it looks great. I haven't tried any more demanding games yet but I expect it to be fine at medium settings.
Battery life is average (4 cell battery) but I use it as a desktop so not really an issue for me. If you use the Toshiba eco mode, you might get 4-5 hours use.
The screen is glossy and low res by today's standards but for the money, it's o.k.
Overall, this is a great machine for the money, combined with Toshiba build quality, I would recommend this laptop to anyone who wants a powerful laptop with decent specs.

Updated - I have now upgraded the slow 5400 rpm drive to a Samsung 840EVO 250gb SSD. The reason for doing this - I really felt that this machine was being held back by the slow mechanical disk drive. With the SSD installed, the performance is breathtaking. From a cold boot to opening a Powerpoint or Word file is within 20 seconds. I feel that this machine can now achieve its full potential.

Pretty impressed with this laptop, bought it primarily for the GPU followed by the nice quad core cpu it comes with! so that I could play my games properly since I don't really have the space for a PC at the moment plus with moving about a lot a Laptop made sense. This laptop boots up pretty quick, the speakers are quite loud and clear for a laptop and it plays my games such as Payday 2 on medium settings and Rome Total War II on Medium to high settings. I've not really played around with the payday 2 graphics settings I left it at the defualt medium settings and works flawlessly I guess it could play a little higher if I tried but been too busy playing! The only thing I do NOT like about this laptop is Windows 8... That is mainly due to the new Metro interface and me missing the old traditional start button/menu, every now and then you are thrown back and forth between the metro and desktop interface depending on what program you use if its metro or not....quite annoying sometimes... I hear a rumour the start button/menu similiar to the windows 7 one may be back in the next windows 8.2 update though... fingers crossed!

A quick note for those people who it may bother as I noticed one review complain about this. The battery does seem to be built in so it isn't as simple to replace as other laptops if it was ever needed...but I assume this battery should last a good while before it needs to be replaced, also if you use the pre installed Toshiba health/tools software there is an option to pro long your battery life if you are like me and will always have the laptop connected to the mains power!

I need a fast machine for imaging and editing. Took advice from my son (a computer graduate) and soon realised how fast this machine really is. Equipped with Windows 8.1 and 1 TB hard drive it eases through gears for loading images and software. I later changed the the hard rive d for an ssd to future prove the unit. However, this takes nothing away from the quality, experience and delivery of output. When you look at the rivals you realise it is value for money. Highly recommended!

Brilliant processor, 2GB graphics card, people who moan about windows 8 either aren't computer literate or have not given it long enough. I did not like it for the first week, but when you get used to it, it is better!! Overall, you won't find a 2gb nvidia graphics card with i7 processor and 1tb hard drive for less than 600 IMO :)
