I am about to course a Master in Germany in Engineering, and I was looking for a laptop that could stand the exigency that a career in Engineering demands. This means, a decent video card (Nvidia 310) for my 3D modeling software, specialy Solidworks, a fast processor (Intel i5) por multitasking and calculations. And so far I can not complain, this laptop does all of these tasks very smoothly. But in particular, it is the new i5 processor what worths the money here. Believe me, if you are one of those like me that had a dilema between the cheaper i5, or put an extra money to get a laptop with i7, save that money, because i5 is more than enough for high speed demanding tasks (and remember I use engineering programs). I guess that if you are into multimedia editing of large videos and photos at the same time, then i7 would be your best choice. But for the rest 85% percent of us that will never take full advantage of this processor, it is just not worth it.

But I was also looking for a entertainment center for my 2 year academic program. This means, that I wanted something that could gather TV, DVD, Music, Nice resolution (1366 x 768, it is not 1080p, but you wont even notice), nice grapchics card and nice speakers in one laptop. And this Toshiba Satellite A665 S6055 does it all. DVD movies play very smoothly and vivid, plus the awesome sound coming from this pair of stereo Harman/Kardon speakers, which are very loud and crisp. I even use them as portable speakers to play my Zune thanks to "Sleep and music" feature.

Not to mention the design, limited edition because of the 25th anniversary. It is just beautifull and very stylish, less prone to fingerprints, the keyboard is great because the keys are a little separated one from each other and it is very confortable to type in.

This computer is a GEM.

The screen is wider and shorter (which takes a bit of getting used to after having two other very SQUARE screens) but, I'm adjusted to that now.

The touchpad is way too spazzy with all of the "capabilities" which actually "handicap" you, but, that's easy to fix, just click on your synaptics pointing device properties, click the "Device Settings tab" and click the "settings" button to disable that gawdawful "one finger scrolling" and nightmarish "pinch zoom". UGH!

The wireless hooked up like a dream. No problems there and it was able to connect to my older wireless router without a hiccup. (*phew*)!

Windows 7 is a bit of a pain to tweak to your own taste but doable once you google some windows 7 tweak sites.

The webcam is really crisp (yes, you have to take the plastic off of it first though lol). I haven't tried the face recognition stuff yet, because, I really don't care about that, but, it works great in yahoo messenger. The computer loads with the webcam application loading up which is annoying, but all you have to do is right click on it and uncheck "autorun". No big shwing. If you want the webcam app back again, just type "web camera application" in your start bar and then right click on the app and pin it to your start menu or taskbar so it's always available to re-start up when you want it (you can move the app to either side of your computer once it's loaded btw).

I must say this machine impressed me. It is very peppy, and all the features just work. The best part about it is that it did not come with tons of bloatware. The keyboard is very good, and in my opinion has no keyboard flex. There is a full number pad, and it does not weigh as much as it appears to weigh, meaning this is a pretty big machine. The sound out of the speakers is very crisp, it is also pretty loud if need be. it handles multimedia with ease. It does not have the most advanced graphics card, but for basic media it is more than adequate. I get about two and a half hours of battery life, but that will differ depending on the power settings used.I chose this over the i7 model, which is not much more, because I felt this was a good power to battery life ratio. Last but not least the machine feels sturdy,and the hard drive protection works great, it seems to sense vibrations very well. If you are on the fence of purchasing a laptop, and comparing this to something else I would suggest this one. I could not recommend this enough.

This is my first new laptop in several years, and my first Toshiba. When I ordered this, I didn't realize it was the 25th anniversary edition, and about the only feature this doesn't have is the backlit keyboard. It has an eco-friendly mode to minimize energy use, the ability to turn on and off the touchpad if you're using a mouse, and a light for the touchpad to indicate if it is off or on. It also has a hardrive lock out feature where it will lock if it detects movement in the computer to prevent damage to it.
I'm still playing with the face recognition software, that is about the only thing I have had any problems with so far -more user induced than the computer. It has a gorgeous picture and plays digital videos like a charm, with an HDMI cable it transfers the image to my tv without losing image or sound quality. It was great to have on a last minute trip to help keep my son occupied watching movies. The SD card slot in the front is great, I had to borrow someone's camera and pulled all of our pictures off their SD card and can go back to edit them once I get the chance.
I am also liking the Windows 7 operating system so much better than Vista, and the Toshiba software add ins make for quick navigation back to what I use the most often. For the size of this laptop, I was pleasantly surprised at its weight- much lighter than my old Dell. I'm also loving the i5 processor for when I am editing multiple large documents in both Word and Adobe= no hang up like on my tower.
