I use my Toshiba Satellite L350 for my college needs. I also do a lot of internet surfing, and it gets the job done. A few things I enjoy about this computer are: + The large size is nice sometimes + The touchpad has great sensitivity, it's just right + It's held up pretty well so far and I've had relatively few major problems + The price was nice + Screen has great picture quality However, as with most products, there are a few downfalls. These are: - The battery life pretty much stinks. I guess this is the way most laptops are, but it'd be nice to have more than 2 hours. And it doesn't even seem like 2 hours. - Sometimes the computer freezes up and I have to just let it die because it won't respond to anything I do. I once even considered removing the battery but I was afraid it'd mess it up. - Sometimes, it's just too big. Especially when compared to other laptops, it seems like a giant. Overall, it's a nice computer that I would recommend to pretty much anyone.
