I reserved one and walk-in bought one. all those coupons worked.

The reserved one I hasn't got confirmation email yet.
I guess soon it will be out of stock and invalid.
I went to the staples in 33156 zip code.

Frys lenovo instore only, not an option for me.

The last one is funny. An inexperienced computer user trying to access the BIOS.
He mentioned using it as a server for builds.. That sure doesn't sound inexperienced. It seems more likely that Toshiba just has a crappy BIOS.

People overstate their tech experience all the time (e.g. Newegg reviews). If you really can't access the BIOS with a shortcut key at power-on and it takes downloading a 100MB+ file to acess the BIOS like he says, then I stand corrected. Otherwise, it is yet another ridiculous review.

Opted for the i3 Lenovo that is FP from Office Depot. No rebate to deal with, much better processor and only about $15 more.

I bought this one..

http://www.staples.com/Toshiba-Sa...uct_136822

same specs as the one the OP posted but it's an i3.

I tried the B580 but lenovo is a stick in the mud on "approved" wifi cards. not a big deal if your not planing on switching it. But I needed to because I have a mobile internet card.

1366x768 greatly decreases the value of the laptop... the loss of productivity is worth a lot more than the saving in price...
These types of comments always crack me up. Have you ever tried actually USING a 15" laptop with resolution greater than 1366x768? It SUCKS! I had one with 1920x1080 and hated it; text so small you couldn't make out anything. I finally had to scale it down to 1440x900 to be readable at all and of course running at non-native made everything sort of fuzzy. Must be people with much better eyesight than me but I wouldn't even consider anything finer than 1366x768 for a 15" laptop; go to a 17" if you want more resolution, or better yet just hook up to an external 22" or 24" LED monitor and then the default resolution doesn't matter.

have been using native 1440x900 for 6 years.... In no way I said it needed to be 1080P, but 1366x768 is a joke...

i use to run everything at 800x600 because of my eyesight. Eventually (like a year ago), I realized you can modify the size of the text under the display settings. That made a huge difference so now I max out the resolution and set size to either 125 or 150 percent. I see things so much more clearly now then the lower resolution but still have the large text size.

I am all about a cheap laptop, because all I essentially use it for is checking some websites, word processing, and storing some photos. I don't need a lot of computing power, just the basics.

Is there anybody that owns this model or any Toshiba that can comment on the build quality? I want to make sure it will last for at least a couple years.

I reserved one, but never got the confirmation. I called the store a few hours later, only to be told it was out of stock and the person there pretty much conveyed that I was SOL. Many hours later, I get a reservation number cancellation email. Only thing worse would have been to waste time going to the store to get the same bad service.

I just bought the one in OP last night. It is my 3rd Toshiba laptop. I have never had any problems with any of them. First impressions on the new one is that it is faster than I expected and looks good too. It has a textured mouse surface that I don't prefer, but I usually use a standalone mouse anyway.

I paid about $410 for my A6 (L775D-S7340) last year and about $180 for this C855-S5350 and so far they are appear to be about the same speed. My A6 is a 17" and maybe a little more solid (anecdotal, for sure), but this new one is DEFINITELY a LOT more of a SD!
