I bought a Toshiba Satellite, supposedly a Best Buy exclusive, during Black Friday 2010 at a great price. It retailed at $800, bought for less than $400 and within a few months, it was less than $350. I understand tech gets cheaper as new tech arrives, but that seemed a bit quick.
As for performance, I had nothing but problems: very poor battery life (3 hours max on battery saving mode with nothing running), poor sound and had to have it repaired twice. On my second visit for repair, the tech actually asked if it was a Black Friday laptop, I said yes, and he said, "that explains it".
I went and bought an ASUS. Does a million times better for me. Near 8 hours on battery saving mode and that's still while online and running programs. I'm sure other people have had great experiences with Toshiba and other products. For me, the problems I had soured me on the brand for a while.
