Excellent, reasonably priced laptop.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Satellite C660-19G 15.6 inch Laptop (Intel Pentium T4500 2.3GHz Processor, 3GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) (Electronics)
I want to start off by saying I am NOT a tech-savvy person but to my mind that is this laptop's greatest strength. It is very user friendly, guiding you through the operating system etc. when you first load it up, very helpful for someone like me who is only used to Windows XP! I bought this laptop for University and it is marvellous for use in this capacity or in a general home use context. It runs smoothly, handling several open documents at the same time with no lag and has [retty much all the functions a student like me could want!
Basically, an excellent laptop for the money you pay and very user friendly. Highly recommended!

Yeah but if does not come with a install genuine disk the product maybe not be genuine version of windows 7 , in my view if they cannot supply a genuine install/ re-install disk they should not be able to sell Laptops on any site ebay amazon or anywhere. What happens if the system crashes and ity's a not very experienced person they will have to pay through the nose and take it too a shop rather than just re-install windows , and the shop who re-installs that might not be a genuine version either. Breaking the law in my eyes supply a genuine disk or they should not be able to sell productas advertizing windows 7 and whio say it's a geniune serial? can you update?

Generally nowadays an installation disc is not supplied - you would have to pay a lot more to get one. Sometimes a "recovery" DVD is supplied, which restores the computer to its original state (thereby obliterating anything you have changed since you first bought it). Usually there is an extra "recovery" partition on the hard disk, with instructions as to how to create a DVD from it (you'd be as well to do this). I am not advocating all the above, but we live in the real world.
Alternatively, if you want more control over a recovery, take a look at NeoSmart Technologies from whom you can download a free recovery disc - this does not contain the operating system, but allows you to access and repair your original one if you can't boot it.
All of the above are perfectly legal - if they hadn't been, they would have been banned long ago. If your computer is made by a reputable company, which Toshiba is, and/or supplied by a well-known supplier (Amazon in this case) your serial number will be genuine. They couldn't risk anything else. And yes, you will be able to update.
Hope this helps.
