Bought this with two years warranty from John Lewis store. Compared to old laptop it is very very fast. For me the only slight drawback is that the display could be better, more contrast, but that applies to most CBs. So far I have found that the Toshiba will do most things that I require. The battery life is very good and it charges quickly. The bigger screen and consequently bigger keyboard is very useful, weight is also acceptable. I love the whole Chromebook concept, the lack of a need to install and pay for (!) additional web protection etc., is great, but the overiding biggest advantage is speed of access, I can be productively online within 12 seconds of opening the lid!!! MS windows is not even in the same ballpark as far as this is concerned. The Toshiba has all the I/O that I need, I've even cheaply added a 64Gb sd card to provide local storage. The card also house itself fully without an protussions. Overall my experience rates this device as 9 out of 10, would be 10/10 if the display was a bit better.
