Bought this laptop few weeks back, absolutely love it. Could not believe at first at the price for a i7 16gb ram laptop compared to other places who were selling it £300-£400 more. The processor is super fast and has a turbo boost that goes up to 3.4ghz which is handy if you needed more processor speed. Use it for my computer aided design software as well as other designing software that requires high ram and a i7 processor and I couldnt be happier with this laptop. Has a beautiful ice silver cover design, and is easy to take around when im on the train etc. The touchpad has multi gesture facility so is easy to use, as well as having harmon karden speakers with dts sound which is excellent for 3D sound etc.

I would absolutely recommend this laptop to anyone who would require it for designing, engineering software and other job roles were you would need a high specification laptop, or for personal use, this laptop has it all.. Love this laptop!!!!!!!!!

A brilliant Machine and A Brilliant Seller.
I am glad I chose Toshiba between Toshiba and HP. This config is much expensive in other brands.

Have used this laptop for couple of weeks. no issues and the performance is super fast.

Good thing is that the seller is giving the additional 1 year warranty so its 2 years in total.

Just in case you feel any tingling when plugged in to the power, you will need Three pin Adaptor to make it go. In this case its just that the power adaptor should be 3 pin UK plug.

Go ahead a buy it from "iTechPlaza International".

I've had this computer since July 2014. Its very fast to start up, and so far has behaved perfectly. It runs very cool, and Windows 8:1 very easy to use compared with Windows 8. A nice machine with good sound quality and graphics. Maybe a little bit pricy considering the very limited amount of software included.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money. 10 Jan. 2016
By Raziel - Published on Amazon.com
Absolutely awful. I bought one of these laptops brand new and had no problem for the first couple of months, but a about four to six months old it started having loads of problems.

Now I work in IT so I know computers, and out of all the computers I've encountered in my life I have never had so much trouble as I had with this one. First problem is the CD/DVD drive died, then the built-in fan began to do it's best impersonation of a helicopter. Due to the fact that this laptop had a two year warranty with Toshiba I didn't want to crack it open myself lest I void the warranty. So I called Toshiba up and was promised they would reimburse me the money it would take to have it shipped back and fix it up. I did as they asked and they refused to reimburse me and after a fight with them they still wouldn't, but they said they fixed the laptop and sent it back. This was November of 2014.

I get the laptop back and it works fine for a couple of months and then the problems returned. CD/DVD player died again and I was forced to use an external, laptop continued to sound like a helicopter was in it and this time the OS kept crashing constantly no matter what. Now that manufacturers refuse to include a recovery disc I had hell trying to create a recovery usb between the chain crashes going on which no fix I could implement would work. I even contacted Microsoft thinking it might be the fault of Windows 8, but I was informed by their customer support that my laptop was not one even capable of supporting Windows 8 which it came with factory installed!

I was horrified by now. Somehow I managed to get a usb recovery setup and reset the computer to factory after losing everything I'd recently worked on since I hadn't been able to finish my backup before the stupid thing crashed, yet again. So after the factory reset it worked fine again for about a month and then it repeated the same problem. After all this I call Toshiba back, again, and they tell me that it's a problem on my end, but there's no way that this is true because I can't even install my software on the computer due to the dead CD/DVD drive.

So I fight with Toshiba again and fast forward to October 2015 and the laptop has had to be reset to factory settings 7 times. I cannot install software, I cannot play games (which is the whole purpose I bought the thing for), I can't even get a word processing program on it without risking it crashing and dying all over again. After all this I got sick of it and called Toshiba demanding a refund since I was within the two year warranty period and this awful laptop has had nothing but trouble from the start, and their awful repairs last time only made things worse. I even told them what Microsoft said and they wanted me to ship the laptop back to them (again, at my expense), but they refused to give me a refund.

As of right now I am still in the middle of fighting with them since October and now they are trying to pull that they can't do anything since they fought this until after the warranty expired.

So for your sake never buy this laptop. I know that after this horrific experience I will never buy a Toshiba product in the future and I'd advise anyone that I know to do the same. You're better off without a nearly thousand dollar paper weight.
