Affordable laptop for basic usage
Overall User Rating (4.1 Out of 5 based on 47 ratings)
Where does one get a laptop with 4gb 1600 MHz RAM and AMD a4 processor which is really low in power consumption [much less than many intel laptops yet no performance-wise ], 6 hour long battery backup, 2X usb 3.0 ports, professional glossy finish, adequately large and highly sensitive keys, crystal-clear sound at this price? I am telling you nowhere, except in this laptop.
I found the display better than lenovo laptop I owned previously, which was twice the price and had same resolution. This laptop makes absolutely no sacrifice in build quality and design. I found the build quality better than quite a few premium laptops.
5400 rpm hard disk is more than enough for the performance but still, I would recommend purchasing and installing a SSD with this laptop as upgrade to enjoy the true experience of this laptop.
Gaming is decent on this laptop considering the fact that it is not a gaming laptop. Most games till 2014, run fine on this laptop with medium settings. This laptop has every feature a everyday user needs [except of course touch screen]. Over all a very good buy.
Despite so many positive points, there are few cons too:
1) Average clock speed of processor. But that too saves your monthly electricity bill
2) Smaller Arrow Keys compared to rest of the keys. They might take getting used to
3) No OS as mentioned in the description. But you can install linux mint by usb or cd and this laptop will run like a breeze
4) Laptop does not come with bag. But you can always purchase a good one from market at around 600 rupees. Same goes for keyguard and screen guard and lamination over track pad.
Now, a note of HELP for those who face trouble while in booting from CD or USB for fresh install of an Operating System:
-Power on and press F2 while the Toshiba logo is displayed to enter the UEFI Setup Menu.
-Go to the Security tab and set the "Secure Boot" setting to "Disabled".
-Go to the Advanced tab, enter "System Configuration" and set the Boot Mode to "CSM Boot."
-Press F10 to save and exit.
-Now boot media will run just fine.
