The only thing that seems a bit backwards is when using the "F" keys ie. F5, F8 etc, you have to hold the "FN" or Function button and then whichever F key you want. I learned this the hard way by disabling my track pad accidentally!
Aside from that it’s great. I was surprised that there was no removable battery pack, which probably is the reason it’s so light! It has a nice long battery life when not plugged in and keeps up its speed.
A huge bonus is one of the USB ports will still charge your accessories while the computer is in sleep mode. Very handy!!
I’m not missing NOT having a cd drive, I still have my old laptop in case I need to burn anything.
My canon printer and all other accessories have been able to sync up fine via USB connections without any additional installation issues.
I’ve had it for a little over a month, so I’m sure there’s still tons to find out about it but so far so good, I highly recommend it!
My former laptop was a 12" Toshiba Satellite but I bought it in 2007. It never crashed or gave me any kind of problem at all, it just felt behind. So I always thought of replacing it with another Toshiba because I trust the brand. I was worried with the size difference (12" vs 14"), but it’s so lightweight it’s not an issue. And it’s so, so fast I love it.
It’s an Ultrabook so they don’t come with CD/DVD Drives anymore, but I think that’s the main reason why they’re so light and slender. So I bought Toshiba Portable SuperMulti Drive PA3834U-1DV2 and problem solved. You know you don’t use it everyday, so why carry it everyday?
I like the tile keyboard but I guess I have to get used to it because I mispelled more often. And the mouse pad is giant compare to what I had before, also something to get used to. It doesn’t have separate bottons for right and left click and that’s giving me a hard time. It’s like I lose control of the pointer sometimes when I click.
Battery life it’s amazing. I couln’t believe it but it’s true, it lasts a little over 7 hours unplugged. A huge difference compared to my old one. 3 USB, one of them allows you to keep charging even in sleep mode. And now, instead of using a thick and heavy VGA/audio cable to transfer image on screen to my TV, I can use HDMI for better quality.
I bought it almost a month ago and so far so good. I highly recommend it!
