"I have been a Dell user for over a decade. However, recently I have been disappointed in their price/quality proposition. So I began looking elsewhere.
I was looking for a computer for my wife that had a high build quality and discrete graphic card and decent specs. Her current Dell was overheating and I worked on it changing the processor to a lower power unit and trying different thermal compounds and tapes. The problem did get better but, never went away. I have a gaming laptop and do not have any overheating issues so, my thoughts is over purchase the laptop and not have to worry about the BSOD and other issues temperature creates.
It was down to the Lenovo Y510 and the Toshiba P50. Which were very similar. Both units had similar features however the newer processor and white back lite keyboard vs Lenovo red made the difference. I began chatting with the Toshiba rep and she offered a $50 discount which finalized the deal.
So far my wife loves it. The build quality was much better than expected. Somehow the raised keyboard is easier to type on than the traditional keyboard. Also the mouse has integrated buttons which resist dirt at the seams. The metal frame is very solid and gives it a luxury feel.
I only wish we could down graded to Window 7. Because of driver issues, my WiFi printer does not work."

"This laptop runs exceptionally slow. Does not handle Win 8 well at all. It takes an average 0f 19 minutes for the log in screen to come up on a cols start. One more call to Help Desk then its going back if no major improvement."
