In addition to being a full-time government employee and full-time college student, I've had no problems using my Toshiba R15.
The weight isn't a problem as I normally use it in laptop mode on my desk or tablet mode on my leg.
The screen is great from all angles (that I use, anyway!) and I've rarely had a problem with glare inside or out.
Overall, I'm highly satisfied with my R15...I've had it since the end of April and have recently shifted to a paperless environment (for note and message taking, writing, etc.) and OneNote has seriously been a great tool for this.
