My TOSHIBA is very user friendly

By 

from Tonawanda, NY

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

I just purchased my 3rd lab top. I must say this will be my first Toshiba. So far so good. I purchased it for my real estate business, it seams that I am very rough on my lap tops. Very difficult to carry around a desk top verison of a computer (HA HA). The keys are a nice size, not too small. Very user friendly. I would recommend it other agents as well.

Best laptop ever!

By 

from Croswell, MI

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

There's so much to be said for this laptop. It's comfortable to use and light. I love it's easy to use convinence. I've had this laptop for about two years now and I could never use another type ever because its just that great of one. I use this everyday and it's worth every dime. I was able to use the internet practically right out of the computer. I love my pictures that i have gotten on it and music is easy use and the screen is perfect size. this is a perfect first laptop and i couldn't imagine my life without this computer. it has eveything on it. music, pictures, games, my friends cause they live in my computer rotfl.  i can watch movies on it and its easy to clean.  This is a completely worth while computer and people would be astounded how much better this laptop is compared to the mac or acer. Yes i went there.  those two computers don't touch all the amazing features included on this computer.

The Excellent Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook Computer

By 

from Butler, GA

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

**The Toshiba Satellite L500 Series is a unique laptop. This notebook computer has a special embossed surface with a texture finished to help reduce fingerprints. However, the textured finish on the Toshiba L500 series allows for great gripping so that it will not slide out of your hands. Also avaible for the Toshiba L500 series in the draft-N Wifi. This allows for the notebook computer to connect to the internet faster and download fast at hotspot. Everyone needs a fast connection so tha**t **they will be able to download multiple programs, songs, etc. The laptop also features a wireless indicator light that tells you when you are connected with wifi. In addition, this laptop also contains volume controls and media card reader. It is nice to have a volume control so you do not have to use the mouse pad to decrease the volume. It also has a Toshiba Bulletin Board, which is like a visual tool using a touch screen to help keep people organized. In addition, it also contains reel time, which allows you to find up to date folders faster. You will not have to look through tons of folders. This laptop is perfect for education.**

I love this computer!

By 

from Salt Lake City, UT

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

I am so happy with my Toshiba Sattelite. It is much better than my computer was at work. The multimedia capabilities are great and Windows 7 is a real plus. I have gone wireless with Sprint for my internet connection. It works great with my Kodak printer and has made some great DVDs. Thumbs up, Toshiba!

I have had no techinal problems and Toshiba has packed the computer with many pre-installed programs. I am looking forward to finding more programs to download and enjoy. I am also impressed by how fast I can search the internet.

The perfect technology for a non-techie in need!

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

When my ancent Compaq laptop and desktop computers made and executed their suicide pact, I got nervous -- really nervous.  How do you give up on a relationship of more than ten years? How do you replace a relationship developed over time , with devotion and passion?  Where would I, an endlessly challenged non-techie ever find a user-friendly, neatly designed, economical, simple-to-use, fast computer?  Oh, and it had to be good-looking, too.  Well the Toshiba people heard my prayers and came up with the Satellite L500-ST2543.  Now, I not only look good when I'm hanging out over coffee, I am getting work done and thrilled with my laptop.

Toshiba Satellite is AWESOME!

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

I'm no expert on computers.  I'm not completely sure what an Intel Pentium Inside is or the significance of an Energy Star rating.  However, I know that I'm a student that needs a reliable and easy-to-use PC.  The Toshiba Satellite L500 Series is all of that and more. 

I'm an accounting major so the numeric 10-key pad is excellent for smoother data entry.  I'm almost always on-the-go and the connectivity of the WiFi is great at any wireless hotspot.  Being 5 hours away from my hometown made me homesick for a while.  The satellite has a built-in webcam and microphone with info on how to register with Skype.  This feature made keeping in contact with my family fun and simple.

The only feature that I don't really like is the speakers.  They are weak and not very loud. For the most part only the highs can be heard, no bass.  I had to purchase speakers to achieve the quality sound I was looking for.

Great laptop, no problems...

By 

from Blacklick, OH

Comments about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook PCs:

Well, after my trusty dusty iBook finally bit the dust I decided to get a new one.  After doing some research, it turns out that Toshiba actually has a better track record for longevity that Apple!  I was shocked.  (and sad...still a Mac fan though ;) )  So, trying very hard to adjust to this new information, I went looking for a PC.  And this Satellite L500 is what I ended up with. 

Keep in mind that I haven't used a PC in about 7 years.  I find it very easy to use.  It came with Windows 7, and I'm sorry I can't compare functionality of other Window's systems to this one. 

I have not had any problems with this (owned it for 3 months now).  I was expecting the "blue screen of death" more often, but that must just be Mac lore to scare off converts.  hahahaha

Anyway, this one is 15.4".  The screen is big and video looks great.

Track pad works great.  This is just a generally easy to use device. 

One of my only complaints at this point is that the speakers are not very good, you'll need a pair of externals if you want to watch anything and hear it too. 

The battery life is OK...I take mine out and use the power source to preserve it's life.  Sorry I don't have a better estimate for you...it lasts quite a while though.
