Pros

  • Good widescreen HD display, speakers
  • Well-balanced general-purpose laptop

Cons

  • Multitouch touchpad is finicky

At A Glance

Despite its quad-core CPU, Toshiba's 'everyday value' laptop fails to deliver exceptional performance. But it has a Blu-ray drive and good sound, and you can play your iPod through the speakers even when the laptop is turned off.
