5.0 out of 5 stars Great light-weight machine 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
Conveniently light and portable. Used extensively on my recent trip to the USA. Modern looking and stylish. Miss the internal CD/DVD drive but that's part of the price one pays for low weight. Much easier to travel with than my Satellite Pro 770-136 but still prefer the 770 for my home office primarily because it has a number pad.
Two USB 3.0 ports are an added advantage but to benefit I have had to purchase USB 3.0 memory sticks. Why don't Toshiba offer them (and portable CD/DVD players) as an option at the initial sales point?
The model is pleasant to look at and easy to use but I have yet to find an extended (3 yr) comprehensive guarantee against defaults.
