A nicely affordable, easy-to-use PC for basic productivity at home or in the office, the Toshiba Satellite C855D (model C855D-S5230) gives families, students or small and home-based businesses the essential power and workspace to study, tackle budgets with a handy 10-key pad, keep up on Facebook and Twitter, or simply do more at their desk.
It's powered by a dual-core AMD E1-1200 accelerated processor (APU), which combines a 1.4 GHz CPU and an AMD Radeon HD 7310 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.
This Satellite laptop features two super-speed USB 3.0 ports--the latest development in USB data transfer technology. In addition to quicker transfer speeds, your USB 3.0-enabled devices won't require a separate power cable either, unlike eSATA technology.
This Satellite comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (learn more below).
