Comment: what sort of files can it handle for photograghy
Good: Bargain, Great Sound, Great Battery Life
Bad: It needs a higher res display, Toshiba need to be clearer on it upgrade potential!
Comment: I've had this netbook since October 2011, at first it was really slow, but after I upgrading the operating system so it could use 4GB DDR3 it was a joy to use! The only hinderer after those upgrades is the write and read speed of the harddrive, I plan to stick in a 240GB SSD as the chipset can support 6GB/s Sata so I should see a significant decrease in loading and boot times. Given the choice again I'd still by the same netbook, Im not fussed about the new versions c-60 as it only gives a short burst of extra performance and can't maintain it.
Good: Great Sound. Long battery life.
Comment: I have had this netbook for about 3 months now. It's got really loud sound system and great screen quality. The battery life can last 4-8 hours, depending on what you do. I go on YouTube alot therefore my battery life lasts about 5 and a half hours. It also doesn't take that long to charge, it takes about 3-5hours to fully charge. It is portable and there is many types and designs of socks and cases.
As I said earlier I have had it for about 3 months. I have had to have the screen tightened and i have snapped of some plastic. However I am very accident-prone and clumsy so to say it has lasts this long without fully breaking, is a good sign.
Overall, this is a good netbook which is perfect for those teenagers who watch videos and stay on the computer all day.
