for 13.3 Ultrabook 1366 x 768 is very poor., even my 11.6 Acer 722 has the same resolution. so whats the point of having an Ultrabook. It should be 1600 x 1200 or 1280 x 900
I agree. The displays are pretty bad on many of these.
Good to use. But the display stopped working within a few months despite being used responsibly. toshiba denied responsibility. Don't buy.
good luck for toshiba, cause this product is nice.
My first impressions have been love at first sight: the look, the feel, the weight, the speed... Amazing, really! The SSD is great and makes the laptop wake up lightning fast.
Now for the cons... After one week of having the unit the display driver acted up twice while watching videos. I find this is unacceptable for a machine of this pedigree. It also seems to get very hot at times, and mind you I live in an environment where the room temperature is in the 60-70F temp range - wonder how it works in a hotter environment?!
After 3 months the display keeps acting up, the machine has become sluggish, the 100MB SSD drive (NOT 128 as advertised) fills up in a heartbeat and now the keyboard has been acting up as well, with the spacebar not responding as it should. I have had 3 (excellent) Toshiba laptops prior to this, and I can say that this is by far the greatest deception I have had, especially considering how much it cost.
I have contacted customer service and they have asked me to send the laptop back. Recall???
Despite being a long term Toshiba user, I have to agree with other comments about reliability. Solid state drive gave up the ghost (Toshiba repaired under warranty), then the screen failed despite no obvious misuse or accident. Toshiba denied warranty on the screen. It also has the noisiest fan I've ever heard on a laptop. Yes, it's light and looks great, but reliability is a problem and eagerness to deny liability lets the product down.
Also had issues with the screen. It just failed without any obvious misuse. Although only having 2 months Toshiba denied warranty and asked for 300 EUR to replace the screen. That was my very first and last Toshiba.
Does Toshiba Potege has touch screen feature ??
