Here is Andrea Polk Review:
For someone who isn’t into games requiring fast, responsive graphics, this basic laptop would be a good choice. Good build quality, nice 15.6″ display (1366×768 (HD), 16:9 aspect ratio, Supports 720p content), built-in media card reader, lightweight body (only 5.2 pounds) and the perks of HDMI, webcam with built-in microphone, and (1) USB 3.0 (you also have 2 USB 2.0) made me smile. The inclusion of the DVD drive (often omitted on lightweight laptops these days) was also a nice perk.
If you only wanted a laptop to use gmail, facebook, spotify, netflix, office, skype… You can use all this stuff with this Toshiba without problems. Buy this laptop and save your money for a trip. It also has an USB 3.0 port, a HDMI port and a DVD device.
