None of the features work. Garbage.
Toshiba really messed things up on this one. From what I understand, they outsourced production of this laptop to an external company. They’ll hopefully learn a lesson from this. We ordered one of these for one of my users and it was nothing but problems from day one. Intermittently, it would come up with a Bad RTC Battery error message on booting. That was usually right after it had spontaneously rebooted while the user was working. Toshiba support was no help. “Try to leave the laptop plugged in for 14 hours and then see if it still happens.” No luck. Then they mentioned, “sounds like you have a conflict somewhere”. Yep, Kathy told them, “We do have a conflict…we have all Dells and this one Toshiba.” I thought we just got a lemon until I did some research online. Turns out many many people have had the exact same problems with their 6100’s and have received no help from Toshiba. I found a possible class action suit against Toshiba for this model. Also, the CNET user opinions are at about 13% or so (positive) for this model. Awful. Do not buy this machine!
