Laptop price/characteristics opinion

Hello to everybody, I'd like to ask you a question.
Yesterday my family bought to me a toshiba R830-110 (with ram extension from 4gb to 8gb), spending in total 1100 euro (about 1200 bucks).
Just I don't get it how is possible that this toshiba, reading its characteristics, can have a price so high, how it is possible? In your opinion, should I change laptop (for the same price I can have easily an i5), or there is a good reason to hold this pc?
I'm not so good with hardware, so I'm asking to you :)
Thanks in advance for the answers.

  6. Okok, I'll try to return it.. thanks for your opinion ;)
  7. Don't buy extra memory from the OEM either. Memory is much cheaper if you buy and install it yourself.
  8. Return it.

    That laptop is worth about $400 Dollars ( 280 -ish Euro)

    For 1100 Euro I can get an I7 3630qm, Blu Ray, 1920x1080 MATTE and a GTX 680m
