3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Feb 26, 2007

THE GOOD: Inexpensive; decent performance; dedicated media controls. THE BAD: No high-end CPU or video card options; poor battery life; flimsy keyboard. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 is a middle-of-the-road system in every way, but it starts to look more impressive when you factor in the budget-friendly price, making it a solid choice for mainstream users.

4 Star Review     

Strengths: The Core 2 Duo processor T5200 is powerful enough for most home applications. 160 GB hard drive provides ample personal storage. Weighted around 6lb, this Toshiba model is quite portable.

Weakness: I expected a little more speed with the Windows Vista Home, standar on this Notebook compared with my previous Windows XP on 3 years old Notebook.

When Trying to download and Install the "Xara Xtreme" package I could not finish up and the usage on the Virtual Memory was up to 100%. Then I change the VM to the Max allowed and it finish up in a minute. I'm planning to put some more RAM and Everything should be fine and hopefuly faster. "Alberto.Pringles@Argentinisima.US"

Good Value
4 Star Review     

Strengths: Cheap, good processor, decent memory, big HD, DVD burner.

Weakness: System seems slower overall than the specs would have you guess.

My system seems slow and crashes constantly. I'm presuming I just have a bad HD, but havent had the time to take it in to get serviced. Overall, its a very good value for the money - better for home than work.

5 Star Review   By member riseofnations - Jul 14, 2007   

Strengths: Fast processor, bright screen

Weakness: memory

Great laptop! I use this everyday and it has a nice bright screen than most other laptop's I've seen. The processor is really fast. Core 2 duo does all the cpu intensive task effortlessly. The memory although enough for most applications, can seem inadequate. But that's vista's fault not the laptop's.

4 Star Review   By member roggan - Jul 13, 2007   

Strengths: Core 2 DUO, screen

Weakness: memory, battery

This was my first laptop and I mostly bought it for school use. It does all the stuff I need it to do. The battery runs for about 2 hrs, but I never had a problem of running out of battery as I always have a power source nearby. The glossy screen is an issue when in bright light, but most laptops are glossy nowadays. It's a great laptop overall!

Strengths: core2duo, 160GB HDD, portable

Weakness: battery life, video card, memory

Had this laptop for a few months now and has served me well. I only use for email, internet and to study. Can't play games on it even if I wanted to. The croe2duo is bottlenecked by the low performance intel graphics chip. But, it does everything I bought it for, so am happy with the purchase. It's also a lot cheaper than similar spec laptops.

4 Star Review   By Laura on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 20, 2007   

I bought this computer 3 months ago and have since helped 2 friends purchace the same model. Currently it is the best value we have found for a good mid-range model with Core 2 Duo, and special pricing seems common. (Our's ranged from $699-849). I had a couple of problems with mine initially, but tech support and warranty service came through. The other 2 have had no problems at all.

5 Star Review   By Danielle on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 17, 2007   

As a college student this computer has absolutely everything that I need. I am able to store all of my pictures, music and data and run multiple programs without slowing down performance. This computer delivers, the battery life is long enough to get me through my classes without having to recharge. For the price I don't think I could have gotten a better computer elsewhere. I'd recommend this to anyone!

Good Purchase
4 Star Review   By Samy on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 16, 2007   

This laptop is a great buy at this price. It comes standard with Windows Vista Home Premium addition and a dual layer DVD writer among other things. Can do most of the regular stuff like watching movies, pictures and listening to MP3 songs with ease. But if you are a hardcore gamer you might want to add more memory since the system comes with only 1GB RAM. Although Windows Vista is great it still has some bugs that needs to be fixed. Also the Windows Media Player that comes with this OS will not play all vedio files. Overall a good buy.

5 Star Review   By Howden4545 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 15, 2007   

I like my Toshiba, but the new vista microsoft does not work as well I thought. I can't use it with some of my programs. I also causes the computer to frezze. Thats not good. The computer, however is great I bought it for my business. It could have come with more games. I love the switch windows feature. Over all I give it a 10 as I do dell. I also wish the battery power was longer.

Good purchase
3 Star Review   By TShep on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 15, 2007   

I've owned a few laptops, so this unit has some nice features vs. my previous laptops. Big screen, excellent color. I haven't used it on battery power much, so can't rate that. Machine is slow to turn on/turn off. Vista is new, so many applications with my company's computers don't work yet. I have to use internet rather than VPN connection. Once those programming problems are overcome with the systems I interface with, this should be an excellent laptop.

Not Impressed
2 Star Review   By KevinMudwhistle on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 15, 2007   

This laptop has been repaired twice in first 4 months. First time the DVD R/W would not work. Second time, the USB ports needed to be repaired. Concerned that something else will go wrong if repairs are needed in first few months. Lost data had to be replaced both times.

Competitive Offering Overall
3 Star Review   By TeaSea on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 14, 2007   

The Satellite A135-S4467 is well equipted to serve the serious college student. The Satellite line offers everything that most majors require and more. The 15.4" screen is bright (adjustable) and easy to read. The color is capable of accurately portraying the most beautiful photograph so that any movie or other recorded image appears as rich and true as the original. The controls, latches, switches and operator information are easily found and easily used. No doubt this Satellite A135-S4467 has features and capabilities beyond the needs of most owners. I look forward to discovering and using this amazing machine's full range of user services as my own knowledge and experience accumulates. My one experience with customer service was pleasant and my problem was solved quickly by a nice lady in Manila, The Philippines.

Works better with Linux
4 Star Review   By VMan38 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 13, 2007   

Battery life is short but acceptable for a consumer level laptop. Very slow with Vista. I need to re-install Vista without all the extra software it came with to see if that will speed it up. After doing some video editing, the laptop took almost five minutes just to shutdown. Start up speed is almost unacceptable. Taking over two minutes from pushing power on to getting to a working state. With linux, very fast, less than 30 seconds from pushing power on button to working desktop (including time to type in login information). Runs beryl without a problem. Overall, I am very pleased with this laptop. This is my third Toshiba laptop. I recommend them to anyone looking for a consumer level laptop. There are better ones out there, but they will cost you a lot more.

a few problems with Vista
4 Star Review   By cclowery on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 13, 2007   

i love my new laptop but i'm having a little trouble with Vista and downloading media files. even after adjusting security and privacy levels, they still can't download to my computer. i have to go back to my old XP. it also doesn't want to recognize my MP3 player. as well, nothing can be added to my media player library. i have ripped CDs and they will go to a folder but won't add to my library. i have all the latest versions of everything and i still haven't figured out the problem.

A Very Great Buy
5 Star Review   By thatonegirl on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 12, 2007   

This computer has many great features. I love the DVD and CD capabilites. I have had only one problem with this laptop and that was with the DVD/CD player. It worked out perfectly though because all I needed was to download a driver from the Toshiba website. The tech support for this site and the people on the telephone are nice and very helpful. I love this laptop, it is probably the best purchase I ever made.

Nisha's Thoughts
4 Star Review   By Nisha on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 12, 2007   

I bought this computer about 3 months ago. So far it has been working great for me. It has a decent price and is very durable. The only complaint I have is that the mouse is very sensitive so be careful because it will close your window really fast and the battery life is short.

Computer's great - Vista, not so much
5 Star Review   By Droffops on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 12, 2007   

The computer is great. Battery doesn't last as long as I'd like but none of them do. I was pretty peeved with the computer until I realized it was all Vista "features" that were irritating me. Wireless works well everywhere I've been.

I am very happy with this laptop now that I'm running Ubuntu on it. When I am logged in as an administrator, I now have admin privedges! Go figure! There is an issue between the 64 bit version of Ubuntu and flash player, but hopefully that will be resolved soon.

Agony to Ecstacy
5 Star Review   By CJ135 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I had a bad experience with my original purchase and Circuit City. I wrote the President and CEO and described the problem concerning the defective laptop and the unprofessional service. I did weeks of research on this product and was more than convinced that it was an incredible buy. So I persisted to resolve the problems and ultimately received my 100% in working order Toshiba Laptop Computer. I actually follow your stock now. I love this computer! It's better than good, it's great.

I purchased this notebook with the intention to use it simply for business and mobile computing. Since then, it has taken over as my primary machine and I haven't looked back. No hangups and very easy to set up and use. Toshiba has earned themselves a new customer.

Liking it!
4 Star Review   By Dutch on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

Overall, it is great and I am enjoying, especially the screen quality. I was surprised how slow my programs load, but that may be a characteristic of the fact I have so many programs. Much better than my previous Dell and it seems to work well with Vista.

Very Good System for the Money
4 Star Review   By BillyBob56 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I bought my system in February and have enjoyed using it. The performance is good and the only problem I have noted is the software for the Toshiba Card Reader seems to be buggy and fails occassionally. I did try to load Windows XP in addition to Windows Vista and got everything to work except the sound driver. My employer won't allow Windows Vista on the corporate network so I can't use my system at work... It would be nice if Toshiba made Windows XP drivers available on their website.

The only fault I've found with this laptop is the Windows Vista operating system. This system would be so much easier and faster to use with the "old" Windows XP system. Other than this one problem, this is a excellent machine.

Good Value
4 Star Review   By teemsum on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I'm just a novice user and I believe this laptop is a good value. However, it appears that Windows Vista has caused many problems in getting/installing updated software programs, even from online.

Value Performer
4 Star Review   By lukethelawyer on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I use this laptop mainly for business applications, and have been very satisfied with its performance. The battery lasts about two hours in word processing, which is adequate for me. If you travel a great deal, I would recommend purchasing the upgrade battery. I have purchased a wireless mouse and 10-key pad, both of which self-installed and work flawlessly. The computer is light and easy to carry, logs on and is ready to use quickly, and has a decent wireless receiver. At $800 on sale, it was a bargain.

Satisfied Customer
5 Star Review   By EKWII on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I'm quite happy with my Toshiba. It feels a lot better made than the Dell that we also have. The dell is about 9 months older, so we'll see how well th Toshiba holds up. My son spilled half a bottle of vitamin water in the Toshiba, and it has not affected it(once we got it cleaned up). Vista is supposed to be a slower operating system, but the computer works plenty fast enough for me and vista is actually nice once you get used to it. The computer does lack MS word, but i knew that when i bought it, so i'm not holding it against it. I woud definately recommend this computer and would surely recommend a Toshiba over a Dell.

Core2duo laptop at a great price
4 Star Review   By member Philamour - Jun 11, 2007   

Strengths: Strong CPU, Home premium system good for "readyboost", spacious SATA harddrive and reputed brilliant TFT Screen

Weakness: Only 1 GB of Ram, junks of pre-installed software and heavy

For $699 no rebate and no ship,it's still a good price in the market almost 3 months after pruchase. It offers middle-to-high performance to handle a lot of daily activities needed of a loptop like this, especially multi-media except gaming. The only downside is the 1 GB ram pre-installed, but with ram price dropping day by day, it's not a big deal to add one more GB at only $19.00/GB.

Impressive Product!
5 Star Review   By Ronald on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I purchased the Toshiba Satellite for my wife, and set it up with myself as administrator. It works flawlessly, though I did delete most of the extraneous software that we would not use. Wait state is minimal, and Windows Vista runs beautifully, although a bit different (and better) than Windows XP SP-2. Battery life of the standard battery pack is relatively short, but acceptable given that we do not normally spend long sessions on battery power. I do miss having a connection speed indication when connecting via dial-up. Physical construction is substantial and the keyboard layout and indicator lights are very user-friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend the Toshiba Satellite to another person!

Excellent laptop
5 Star Review   By DrDave on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 11, 2007   

I bought two satellite A 135-S4467 one for my daughter. We are both very happy with the computer. This was the fourth and fifth Toshiba laptops we've bought in the family. These were also the best. One issue with the Toshiba laptops is that they last much longer than they are are adequate. The previous Toshibas were updated to the max but outlasted their capability to handle the latest software. None of them had any need of repair in all the years we owned them. The latest Toshiba purchase is the best of them all. Everytime I talk to my daughter she says she loves her computer. We have not even seen all the features yet and are amazed by those that we are familiar with.

Good buy for the money
5 Star Review   By Patty on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

Overall, the laptop is worth its price. The only complaint is the available battery life needs improvement. The Windows Vista operating system is rediculous with all the permissions you have to give to do anything. They should have localized the security to the areas where it is most needed. Not Toshiba's fault, but still irritating.

For a non-technical user, this laptop has been excellent. Graphic display, speed, ease of use are all the best I have experieneced in my 15 years of home computer use. The only criticism, which mirrors many laptops, is that battery life needs to be longer. Vista is 'so-so'. Ideally, this computer would have been outstanding in my rating if I had XP instead of Vista. jackbmc

After my old desktop computer bit the big one I knew it was time for new and I decided on a laptop for the portability. I heard Toshiba was good so when I went looking to purchase this was the best one for the money I wanted to spend. I am very happy with it. The Vista though still has me learning...I'm glad there are "dummies" books.

Awesome
5 Star Review   By Moses on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

I saved up over a 6 month period to purchase a new laptop computer. The day came that I needed the use of it. I walked into a local national level retailer and 10 minutes later walked out with a Toshiba. I had no preference prior to that day, just knew that I was only spending $850 total tax included. The salesman directed me to the Toshiba Satelite and it rang up just under my mark. Went home plugged it in and no worries since. I liked the Microsoft trial version of Office. It gave me the opportunity to view before purchasing. I have had no issues and am happy to give a very positive review. Moses Columbus, Ohio

5 Star Review   By catsmeow4 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

This is my first laptop, so I didn't know what to expect. This little guy works great, living up to the level I expect from Toshiba. I use it for work (I'm an insurance agent, and all my info is loaded on it). All the junk could have been left off (like AOL, etc.), but I just blew it out. Windows Vista is a memory hog; but that is not the fault of Toshiba.

So far, great laptop
4 Star Review   By Lari on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

Have been a laptop user for over ten years, almost all Toshibas. Am still getting used to this one - keyboard slightly to the right because of video panel on the left. Keyboard also doesn't always want to strike the letters, so I spend time backtracking in my writings. Other than that, the display is sharp and bright, Vista has been better than I expected, the fan is semi-quiet, so I'm very pleased for now. We'll see how it holds up on a trip to Italy.

5 Star Review   By kb7skb on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

Overall a good machine - seems plenty fast. My only complaint is the flex in the keyboard and the placement being slightly offset to the right. The previous satellites had better keyboards. The laptop is advertised with a gig of ram and expansions up to 2gig. What they don't tell you is that both expansion slots are already used and to upgrade, you must buy new modules.

No mute button
4 Star Review   By Olen on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

Why? Why have a miserable dial that is thin and hard to find? Why not have a mute button? For $1000.00 why is there no blue tooth? Other than that the battery has begun to shorten its life within 3 months. The rest of the parts are performing their required functions without flaw.

Nice Laptop
5 Star Review   By AMMJ on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

Really nice laptop computer. Looked at other brands, but decided on this computer based on my needs. The only things I don't like are the short battery life (about 2.5 hrs) and the easy way the outside of the computer scratches. It's pretty, but not practical. Otherwise, am very satisfied. I have a desktop computer that I use for work, and wanted a computer to manage my music, for entertainment, and for internet. Very impressive picture if you want to use it to play DVDs. Buy one!

I brought it 4 months back from office max for $750. I am happy to get it for that price but the performance is not good. Its wireless area heating up with in 30 min. so I feel uncomportable to keep my left hand on laptop. bettery life is very poor. other problem is while opening the laptop you need to hold the bottom and then you have to open the lid otherwise you can't open the lid.

4 Star Review   By HY56 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

I bought this laptop because it was a great deal at the time. It does have everything I need, just bigger and heavier than I would ultimately like. The only thing I would wish for would be another Meg of RAM. Technically it's been fine, except I've only had it 2 months and have a line of dead pixels on the screen, which I have to get replaced now.

Hate keypad...
4 Star Review   By LegalNurse on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

I love everything about this Toshiba except the keypad. I have to retype more than 50% of my words since the keys have to be struck MUCH more firmly than any other computer I have ever owned. I end up with one or two letters missing in many of the words I type, which drives me nuts! I wish the keypad was more sensitive to touch, then I probably would have no complaints. (The speakers aren't great, but I run all of my sound through a Bose, so it's a non-issue.)

Dual-boot with Kubuntu
5 Star Review   By Pennatomcat on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 10, 2007   

Very pleased with this machine except for 1 major problem area--Microsoft Vista. This computer really crawls with Vista. When I prepped to multiboot Linux, I lost Vista when I resized the partition. The restore disc worked well. (Would like to see a return to a full installation CD) Tried more than a dozen Linux distros before I found one that correctly set up wireless service. (Kubuntu "feisty fawn") Can't really comment on the battery life. I set the machine aside until I resolved the wireless problem. I'm keeping Vista only for customer support reference.

Excellent hardware, but.....
4 Star Review   By TravelingGeek on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

Excellent hardware. Software stinks. Buy it if you intend to put another operating system on it or demand 64 bit Windows Vista. The only hardware drawback is the lack of a touchpad on/off switch. It has to be turned off with the operating system which Windows Vista can't do. If you want to use your favorite trackball or mouse, you have to install Linux; Ubuntu and Kubuntu work great with this machine. If you don't disable the touchpad, the cursor skeeters off to parts unknown every few minutes and you end up typing where you didn't want to. Windows Vista is a drag. Won't run all software. It is slow as molasses in December. It crashes repeatedly. Security ain't what it is cracked up to be; it took me ten minutes to hack into it and delete a directory. Since it is 32 bit operating system on a 64 bit machine; that makes it 32 bit computer and no better than any 1.6 GHz garden variety 32 bit single core machine . If you install 64 bit Linux that makes it a 64 bit dual core machine which really cooks and never crashes -- at least not in three months. Fedora FC6 and SUSE Desktop 10.2 doesn't work; there is an ACPI conflict which causes it not to shut down properly and neither the ethernet nor WiFi will work. It all works with Ubuntu and Kubuntu.

Second time's the charm...
3 Star Review   By chachieskimo on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

I got this computer about two months ago, and got a wonderful deal on it when I bought it. I took it home, started learning it, and aside from having to get used to vista, I was very happy. However, a month after purchasing it, the computer died on me, and I had to send it in to the company to get it fixed (turns out the motherboard was dead after a month). While I am frustrated with that aspect, I have still enjoyed the computer, and am hoping that the need for repair so soon was a fluke.

Great Deal
5 Star Review   By Trish on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

I think this is an awesome machine for the price. I wanted a machine with dual processors that would run Vista and Office 2007 and this one does it quite well. I have had no problems with it so far, except for something that keeps it from shutting down, but that only happened after a Vista fix. I'm hoping Microsoft will eventually fix that. I don't believe it is anything connected to the laptop itself. It runs all my games and I can work with several Office documents open at once, as well as different apps at the same time. I tend to push my machines, and so far, this one hasn't disappointed me. If it holds up, my next computer will probably be another Toshiba.

Great Value for the Money
5 Star Review   By MusicMan55 on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

I researched new laptops for 2 weeks before I came to the conclusion that the Toshiba A135 S4467 was the best value out there at the time. I wanted to experience Windows Vista without buying a whole new desktop system, plus I like to surf the net from my easy chair. The internal wireless adapter instantly hooked up with an older B system wireless router, base station that I owned. The screen is bright, 160 GB hard drive and 1 GB of memory is plenty for what I intend to do. Vista is interesting, and its fun to explore the new operating system. My neighbor was impressed and she ran out and purchased one herself for her teens. Glad I was warned that the fan is on the bottom so you can't really just sit it on a pillow or your lap, you need a hard surface to allow it to breathe and cool off. A month after I bought it, I can still see I got a good deal.

4 Star Review   By loveless on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

Although I am not a fan of Vista, this computer is treating me well. About the only thing it really needs is at least another gig of memory, Vista tends to use nearly that much for basic processes. It's a good value and I'm glad I bought it.

Not bad for inexpensive laptop
4 Star Review   By LinuxUser on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

After waiting for ever for Vista to go through the first run setup I played with it for a while then loaded Suse 10.2. So for those of you that want a laptop that runs Suse and Mandriva this is a good choice for the money. Both Suse and Mandriva do not see the SD reader but I don't care about that. Suse supports the laptop better for power savings features. I replace an anthon xp 3000 desktop with this one and the laptop is faster. Too bad the only os you can get for this is Vista. Anyhow for the speed it's worth the money. How fast does it run Vista, I have no idea.

Very Good Notebook: Not So Good Battery Life
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This computer has performed very well in all categories except battery life. I can't believe Toshiba would put such an inferior battery in an otherwise great notebook computer. The battery lasts less than 2 hours while watching a movie. Barely two hours if you're doing anything else. This is the second Toshiba notebook that I have owned. I never had this problem with the first one, which was puchased in 2003. My son uses that now. Even though he's on the second replacement battery, it still last longer than my Satellite A135-S4467's battery does. Toshiba should give us a substantial discount on the optional extended life battery for this notebook computer.

Great value, Vista annoyances
4 Star Review   By Turtle on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

I desperately needed a new laptop after using my 10-year-old Compaq for the last year. This Toshiba was a great value, and I'm enjoying the speed and versatility. However, Windows Vista is no great improvement over previous iterations of Windows. I guess I'm not really surprised, but I was hoping for something more. The best thing I've found about Vista so far is that it includes Chess and Majohngg Solitaire. The whole system slows down horribly when running AOL Instant Messenger, and I've had some troubles with it locking up when running Yahoo! Jukebox. The battery life isn't quite as long as I'd like it to be, as it runs down with basic usage in just over an hour. It's just enough for me to get a little bit of work done before I've got to plug in again, but the portability makes it okay. All in all, I like this system, and once I get past all the annoyances of Vista the experience will improve greatly.

4 Star Review   By cgaz on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

The Satellitefully meets my needs at this time. My very first desktop computer was Toshiba and I was happy with the desk top and the support that I received from Toshiba. So far, my only problems have been software: Windows Vista. Since I have always used desktop computers with occasional use of a laptop for work. I have noticed that the computer seems to blink after using it for a while. This may be the cycle of the fan or a Vista issue and plan to have it checked by the Geek Squad at Best Buy if it becomes a problem.

4 Star Review   By Margo on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

I like my Toshiba laptop, but I have noticed after just a couple of months that the DVD drive does not respond sometimes and its loud. I have also decided that I am not real fond of Vista it jumps around alot and that drives me nuts. Other that I feel that my Toshiba laptop was a great deal for the money. Just a piece of advice save yourself the money on purchasing an extra 1GB of memory and buy it for $70 instead of the extra $200 you pay to buy a little more hard drive space and the extra 1GB of memory. Trust me 160GB hard drive is so much more than you need if you plan on using your laptop even for office applications like I do for school purposes. If this is your first laptop make sure to buy a comprehensive repair package that covers your entire laptop.

this is my first laptop (not first computer) and am impressed with the performance compared to that of friends' laptops. it is priced right for the features and gets the job done. all in all, this is a great computer for those who need to complete the simple school/work related tasks but have a budget. windows vista takes some getting used to, and hopefully programs and add-ons will soon be more compatible, but is overall a nice system.

Great value
5 Star Review   By eskpee on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

I love this laptop, it was a great value for all the features it offered. Having the integrated wifi card is wonderful because I donj't have a wireless card sticking out of the side like I did with my last laptop. Everything pulls up very fast.

5 Star Review   By blkftbear on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

Hello Computer Savvy Users, This is my first computer I have purchased. I had to first make up my mind whether to purchase a desk top or laptop. I chose a laptop because I felt it would be flexible and fit my life style. Once I researched, the consensus was Toshiba laptop were highly rated. I am very pleased with the performance of my Satellite A-135-S4467. I've had my Satellite for about 2-months and I am very pleased. Your customer service staff are some of the nicest people. I made the right choice!!! blkftbear/6-9-07

Great!

Love it! The best thing by far, IMO, is the "config-free" internet connections. Connecting to a wireless network is as simple as flipping a switch and clicking "connect". And connecting to a LAN is as easy as plugging in the network cable, and BOOM, it goes!

Good Value
5 Star Review   By JonandMandi on ToshibaDirect.com - Jun 9, 2007   

Seems to be a good value for the amount of money we paid for it, which was a good deal at the time. Seems to be a very good quality laptop. Works great as a home PC if you don't require a lot of extras. We will look buy more Toshiba products in the future.
