Overall: First and foremost Toshiba laptops are known for their sturdiness and durability, hands down to this since no other brand can even match-up closely to its strong and robust build.
Now for the spec reviews. Suprisingly I couldnt find a single user review online on this product and it was quite ticklish of me to buy this laptop
--Processor: i5-4th Gen with a sufficient 3MB cache and 2.5Gz clock speed
along with 4G upto 16G expandable is capable of running memory and process intensive applications simultaneously like Adobe After Effects and Sleeping Dogs (game).
--Battery life is average which again is also dependent on OS,applications,PC settings.
--Keyboard and touchpad are very ergonomic ,though my touchpad is a little shaky which might be a problem of my product.
-- 1G Nvidia graphic card is capable of running high end games smoothly like Hitman Absolution,Injustice,Sleeping Dogs. You can always increase the ram for much more better gaming experience.
-- Speaker sound is good. Install a good sound driver.
No OS - Although not exactly a con, but it is quite tedious to install an OS and be careful, don't forget to install the necessary drivers to get the ethernet, wifi, graphic card, web-cam etc working.
Atleast a Toshiba driver CD would have made it easier to install, cause I had to manually search for and install drivers for both Win8 and Ubuntu (I have dual-booted them) which took me hours!!!
Actually the above are not drawbacks because you are not paying for the OS ,which otherwise would have increased the overall cost by a few thousands.
Overall, this product is good for the price.
Warning :Be prepared for the manual installations, once everything is done, this machine is truly outrageous, truly truly truly outrageous.
