Very good user reviews on Newegg
Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Uses conventional harddrive. Higer power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 5 lbs is typical for this screen size
Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
Integrated webcam for video chatting
Processing power may not be sufficient for computation intensive tasks such as simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption, etc

I got this as an open box buy and couldn't pass it up due to price. Swapped 2nd Ram stick for an 8gb ddr-1600 for a total of 12. Read somewhere that the 7640g reserves 512 but can also use several m...

I like the computer, good price for options such as a decent video card, but I hate the new operating system. Would prefer XP or 7 over 8.... This laptop was very easy to setup and use. I was impressed with the speed and performance. The only irritating part was Windows 8 and the number of software and utilities that were installed by Toshi... Great laptop. Getting used to windows8 the only down side is that the speakers arent loud enough for my liking.... I would like this better if it didn't have Windows 8. The specs on this machine are awesome for the price. I am quite happy with this purchase. I have had good luck with Toshiba. I have several old To...

The A6 and A8 are more suited for all-around use w/advanced graphics applications (such as gaming or 3D modeling).
