I am unhappy with my Toshiba P750-BT4G22 and am sending it back. Nothing but problems since day one. 5 hours on the phone with Toshiba support and another 5 of my own time. And now they want me to send it back and wait three weeks for a repair. Well I paid $1000 for this computer so I WOULDNT have to do that so I am sending it to them but not for repair, for refund. Especially since I need this laptop Saturday when I go to college. That is why I bought it.

Anyways - nothing is a dealbreaker though:

Specs:
2nd Gen i7
6GB RAM
500G HDD
nVidia graphics card
14"-15.6" screen
Backlit Keyboard
Windows 7

Price: <$1000

I would get the Asus laptop because it is much more modern and Asus has a low failure rate after 3 years. Also what was wrong with the Toshiba?

I personally think the headphone jack or something in the circuit is messed up but no one listens to the idiot on the other end of the phone. When I plug my headphones in, the internal speakers from the latop don't cut off and continue playing and if by some magical chance it does cut off, then when I remove the headphones they internal speakers never come back on until a restart. I get that it isn't a terribly big problem, but I didn't have that pleasant of an experience with their outsourced customer service in the first place. Anyway they wanted me to send it back to them for repair because they FINALLY (After about 5 hours total on the phone) agreed it was the jack.

Maybe you should RMA it.

That is what I am doing. Should be getting the email notification sometime tomorrow hopefully.

Might have to go ahead and order a new one before I get credited my money back.

Michael,

Is there a computer that would outperform any of the above if I opened up to the i5?

Sorry my bad, the K53. The Asus already has a i7 2nd gen which is already powerful enough.

Ii think I may get the K53. My dad has an ASUS and has had no problems. I don't really want HP or Dell because I've heard less than good stuff. Also, I don't have any experience with lenovo and don't really want to test it out right now haha.

The K53 has all the same specs as my Toshiba, so it should be good. But, then again, the Lenovo has a better graphics card and 8GB ram with the same on the rest and it is cheaper.

Hmmm....

I would never get a HP because of there high failure rate. Lenovo is fine in my experience, i bought my dad one last year and it's still working :thumbsup: I would stick with Asus, they make some awesome high performance laptop, although i am happy with my Toshiba :thumbup2:

I've been happy with it other than the headphone issue and customer support. If I sent it for repairs then I wouldn't be able to get a refund in the future and I don't want to be stuck in that situation.

I think I am gonna go with the ASUS. Hopefully they will ship it relatively quickly...classes start Wednesday.

What about this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230027&nm_mc=OTC-C173T&cm_mmc=OTC-C173T-_-Notebooks-_-ASUS-_-34230027

The other is $959.00 with $9.99 shipping to it is only a $20.00 difference.
