'Had the usual Toshiba bloatware which I unloaded. It runs fairly slow...long boot up time and startup items are minimal. It has 8GB Ram but a slower processor and 5400 rpm hard drive which I reckon is too slow for Windows 10 to boot quickly. Once it is up and running, it runs just okay. Not a speed demon by any stretch. Acts like it does not have 8GB of Ram but it does, of course. I knew this when I ordered it sight unseen because I wanted to learn Windows 10 and it will never be my main machine.'
So removing the bloatware did nothing for him. The guy with the 'bad box' actually gave 4 stars. But then some guy (not paying attention) gave 2 stars for ' Nice Computer-Very functional computer and has been a huge help to me' which should earn at least 4 stars. And many complaints on the touchpad and a few on the keyboard quality. A mouse will fix the touchpad, but if you do a lot of typing, you may need to look elsewhere.
INFO...
The AMD A8-6410 is a mobile quad-core SoC (codenamed "Beema") for entry-level devices and subnotebooks, which has been presented in spring 2014. In addition to 4 CPU cores clocked at 2.0 - 2.4 GHz (boost clock), the 28 nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon R5 GPU, a single-channel DDR3L-1866 memory controller and the Southbridge with various I/O-ports. Besides the slightly higher base clock (2.0 instead of 1.8 GHz), the technical data and therefore the performance is almost identical to the A6-6310 APU.
Performance
In single thread tasks, the A8-6410 is clearly faster than the former A6-5200 (25 W, 2.0 GHz), but just slightly ahead in multi thread benchmarks. Overall, the APU offers a performance similar to a Haswell-based Pentium or Core i3 (ULV). Nonetheless, the A8-6410 will be sufficient for all daily workloads like Office, Internet browsing and multimedia.
Graphics
The SoC integrates a Radeon R5 GPU with 128 shaders, which is based on the GCN architecture and clocked at up to 800 MHz. On average, the graphics performance is similar to Intel's HD Graphics 4200 or a dedicated Radeon HD 7470M. Only a few current games (as of 2014) are thus playable in low settings, but older and less demanding titels should run flawlessly.

The stars look low, but if you read the reviews they aren't bad. One guy gave 3 stars for a damaged box but still loves the machine. The only reasonable complaint was that it's slow (most machines are when they first start up, and the bloatware can be obnoxious until it's uninstalled)... but I think this machine is great. I've recommended it to a friend...

It says DVD SuperMulti drive supporting 11 formats which is VERY vague. On the Toshiba site on google it says...
Most Toshiba laptops come standard with a DVD SuperMulti drive, ... Play movies and software on DVD; Burn music, movies and files to CD
But when I go to the link I can not find out exactly WHERE it says that info

http://us.toshiba.com/laptop-find...MultiDrive But it says nothing about burning to DVD, just CD.

And according to WIKI-
Super Multi or Super AllWrite refers to a drive that reads and writes CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW and DVD-RAM.

And on sams.com review-
Thanks for your question, amp1129. Yes, this Satellite C55 laptop features a DVD SuperMulti drive which means you will be able to burn CD's and DVD's. Here are the compatible formats: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (8x), DVD-R DL (6x), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (8x), DVD+R DL (6x), DVD+RW (8x), DVD-RAM (5x)

This would be a fine laptop for Microsoft Office or any other similar office suite (Libreoffice, Google Apps, Office Online etc).

For 11 years old, you should consider this one for $130 with VISA check out promo. This will do everything that 11 years old need, it is also light (2 lb), kid should be able to handle it, 12 hours battery life, and cheap (if he breaks it, oh wellSmilie ). You can search SD for previous threads and there are many happy SDers with this one.

Not arguing with anything you said. I have an A8-4500 which runs great, and often faster than many other machines. My guess is the guy who cleaned up the bloatware didn't get all of it, or whatever. My relatively ancient machine runs great and I use it every day for CAD and work stuff...

Point is, at $250 it's a good deal and not a "bad reviewed" machine per the reviews shown. I'm guessing the "slow" review was from someone who may be expecting too much from this machine...

I agree. He may also have received a 'lemon'. You also have to put into the equation that there are more bad reviews out there than good. Many potential good reviewers have no reason to review a product. On the other hand, if you are upset a product is not meeting up to your standards, you will probably leave a feedback (negative). And yes, $270 (with tax) is not a bad deal at all.
