Strengths: very portable, fast processor, beautiful screen
Weakness: a little bit thick
Overall, this is a very good laptop. You can take it to anywhere. It comes with a fast Core 2 Duo processor, but if you need to run the program more quickly, you should upgrade the memory to 2GB. Fortunately, it is very easy to upgrade.

Small & Fast
Strengths: Fast Processor. Nice Screen. Fingerprint Reader.
Weakness: 1GB Memory.(Should have at least 2GB) No Extended Battery Produced For This Model.
I have been really pleased with this laptop. I was able to get it at a great price. I was looking at the Dell XPS 1330, but for almost half the price I went with this Toshiba instead. I AM GLAD I DID. It is really light-weight as well. The screen is amazing. Overall I would give this Toshiba 4 out of 5 stars.

does a great job
This is exactly what I was looking for after my other laptop died. I needed something light and small. This fits me perfectly. I take it with me and don't feel like I'm carrying around bricks. I've even dropped it and thought for sure it would be dead, but it was fine. I have no problems with this great machine.

Good Laptop at a great price
Strengths: Compact design, small screen, very light, nice features
Weakness: Windows Vista
Its a nice machine. Great processing power, enough hard disk capacity for all my needs. Very light and portable for my mobile needs. Speaker volume is excellent (better than my Sony Vaio FRV 26). I do not like windows vista, its irritating. System was easy to use right out of the box. I got it for under $700 which makes it a great buy.

Its a nice machine. Great processing power, enough hard disk capacity for all my needs. Very light and portable for my mobile needs. Speaker volume is excellent (better than my Sony Vaio FRV 26). I do not like windows vista, its irritating. System was easy to use right out of the box. I got it for under $700 which makes it a great buy.
It also come with a finger print reader, which was not very easy to use, but its optional so its not a problem. Headphone and speaker jack are in front for easy use.
I would highly recommend this machine to anyone who wants a compact useful machine.

I'm a student that must commute every day to school. My classes are 3 hrs long so battery life is very important to me. This laptop has excellent battery life, 3 hrs with wireless on and 4 hrs with wireless off. Some people have posted that the battery life is poor however you might want to call Toshiba. After 6 months my motherboard went out and was sucking my battery dry. It wasn't a huge deal...

I'm a student that must commute every day to school. My classes are 3 hrs long so battery life is very important to me. This laptop has excellent battery life, 3 hrs with wireless on and 4 hrs with wireless off. Some people have posted that the battery life is poor however you might want to call Toshiba. After 6 months my motherboard went out and was sucking my battery dry. It wasn't a huge deal because Toshiba fixed it for free! If you want a small and powerful computer you've picked the right one. I would also recommend that you upgrade the ram to 2 gigs if using vista. I have Ubuntu installed so it's not a big deal for me.
