WOW, AMAZING JOB! CONGRATULATIONS FOR SUCH IN DEEP REVIEW!
I bought this computer on august 2013 just as the haswell processors came out. I dodged all the "ultrabook" "ultrathin" stuff, and was looking for a big bright HD screen with powerful cpu. And I found this baby, and it has worked PERFECT since then. I use it mainly for school work. Any program that I have thrown at it, the machine responds well... I even use mercalli video stabilization, and no problems it does the job. The difference between how fast the video gets processed when compared to xenon eight core processors which I have access too, is just time. But no crashings, no freezes...I play starcraft 2, and it does well the job.
By the way, I have not upgraded any components, yet. But I will.
Affordable and conservative. While the waves of Ultrabooks and tablets wash over the market, Toshiba’s got something just the opposite: a conventional, 17-inch desktop replacement. Just because you’ve got the latest parts doesn’t mean you have to embrace the latest trends… right?
