I have bought 2 Toshiba laptops in the last year (wife + grand daughter) They were 15in Satellite models bought from John Lewis as they give a 2 year warranty. My local repair shop says that Toshiba snd Asus (parent of Acer) seem to be the most reliable of the laptop family and he can get spare parts more easily than other brands. Both are very good (5i, 500gig HD etc). Sorry I cannot comment on your specific model. Also see here:
