It's powered by a dual-core AMD C-60 accelerated processor (APU), which combines a CPU and a graphics processing unit (GPU) on a single chip, helping to accelerate daily applications while also delivering lower power consumption. The APU can quickly offload demanding tasks and applications from your CPU to the GPU, enabling you to do more with your computer in less time.

The bright 15.6-inch LCD offers a 720p native high-definition resolution. And thanks to the built-in webcam and Toshiba Face Recognition software on this machine, you'll enjoy a more convenient way to communicate, log on, or share your laptop among the family. Plus, you get plenty of ports and storage to give you the freedom to expand, or hold more files and media.

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

It totally crashed on my 3 months out of the 1 year warranty.
Registered my warranty 3 TIMES with customer service (registration was always "lost" even though I had a reference number for each call).
In fact, one guy just told me to throw it out and "would you like to buy another Toshiba Satellite?"

I bought my Toshiba laptop almost three years ago. It's been great. My husband and I both use it as our primary computer and move it all over our house. I know it's gotten bumped and jostled a lot but it works perfectly. This computer is fast and user friendly. As a banker I love the 10 key option. The computer itself is easy to carry although not the lightest computer I've ever held. It's also comfortable to type on unlike other laptops I've owned and the keyboard is almost as large as a standard keyboard. The screen is large and the picture quality is great I watch a lot of instant videos on my laptop and they always come through really well. This computer has already lasted much longer than both Dell and HP computers that I paid twice as much for. I could upgrade but this computer works so well I have no desire to. I'm planning on buying my husband one for his birthday and I know my next computer will eventually be a Toshiba too. I've never had a laptop I actually loved before. This one is just awesome and so reasonably priced!

I bought my C655D a few months ago at a local store when it was on sale. Even though the 2GB memory is not a lot, it's enough for my needs! I use it daily for watching streaming videos, a few times a week DVDs, and I also use it to surf the web and use Word and Excel. For web surfing I use it to participate in Amazon's Vine program. The laptop is fast enough, and thanks to IE9, I've been able to consistently log on quickly and request stuff I'm interested in trying out. I'm typing this review on the comforable keyboard. I find the C655D a good inexpensive laptop that's much faster than a netbook which costs about the same or even more. The screen is big and bright - and it's nice to have a numeric keypad! Currently I have 5 tabs open in IE9, Word 2010 open, Windows Live Mesh and Messenger running in the background, I also have WMP 12 open but paused on a streaming video, and I just downloaded LastPass in the background. The C655D feels fast and responsive all this time! For virus and spyware protection, I use the lean and mean and highly effective Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free for all Win7 and Vista users. (XP users can get the free Windows Defender, also from Microsoft.)

Computer is lightweight and very easy to use. Power consumption is resonable as well as battery life.
Cost is very affordable

I owned a previous version of this computer which I really liked. The first thing you need to know is that this computer requires a fairly unique power source so if you want to order extra power cables, it is going to be a pain and expensive. The computer itself has a long lasting battery, is fast, and has beautiful graphics.

I love the light up keyboard but do not get any liquids anywhere close to it. You should consider investing in a keyboard cover since even a fraction of a drop of liquid can short out the keyboard.

Now for the downside, the computer bluescreens constantly. There is some kind of a change to the software from its previous incarnation that interacts badly with something I have loaded and causes constant bluescreens. I have fairly basic software. The longest I have gone without blue screening is three weeks. However, mostly it blue screens multiple times in a day. I have reloaded the operating system twice and I have had the computer into an authorized Toshiba repair shop multiple times and I still have the problem. This is a deal breaker for me and I have reverted to using my old computer.

Therefore, I give it two stars.

14 of 22 people found the following review helpful By a dad on March 4, 2012
I've owned about 6 laptops and this is my favorite brand except that the left mouse button only lasts about a year. It gets weaker and weaker as the spring inside wears out. I first experienced this about 5 years ago and had to trash my toshiba then. Now in 2012 my Toshiba c655 laptop is doing the same thing. I looked online and it's a real common problem. Conspiracy theory is that Toshiba doesn't fix the problem so people will buy new computer every couple of years. I don't know why they don't put a better button on the machines, this is not a cheap computer.
