Product Description

Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5230 15.6" Notebook - AMD E-Series E1-1200 1.40 GHz - Satin Black PSC9JU-003003 41

Amazon.com

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).

I bought this laptop based on the previous reviewer's comments, thinking that I may have found a decently priced laptop great for my needs. I took advantage of buying the computer at a local Brandsmart at a cheaper price(hint hint) than Amazon prices. It's light weight, large screen, and the keyboard is very easy to handle.

My concerns after using my laptop for the past week:
1. The computer runs pretty slow for typical web browsing sites; I was very surprised by this because this is a brand new laptop and shouldn't have this issue as though it was infected with a virus that will slow down the processor.
2. There isn't a notification that warns of low battery life before shutting down in the middle of my work. I checked the settings and it is set to show a warning but for some reason doesn't show up at all.
3. The battery life isn't that impressive. I've had other laptops that I've used off and on, shutting it down when not in use, and this laptop doesn't seem to last more than a few hours of minimal use.

For the price, it's okay. But I am disappointed with the speed and battery life.

Purchased as a general purpose home computer for myself (53) and spouse. Never purchased computer online or through Amazon before this. Took the chance and am I glad I did. Very happy with this Toshiba. Built in wifi works better than expected. First couple of weeks I was using it kept waiting to find something on this Toshiba that I did not like. Nothing, no unexpected negative surprises or issues. Give both Toshiba and Amazon very High Scores. Thanks to both, just made my life better, faster, and happier.

One thing I like about Toshiba is that they make workhorse products. You won't find a lot of unused frills mixed in either the software or hardware (though there is some bloatware to offset costs-thus is life). The case is textured plastic and straight matte which is perfect for our industrial environment. It's got a full QWERTY with a numpad which is a bonus. The hardware is well balanced and is plenty to handle multitasking in MS Office products and other typical office products as well as web browsing. For home use, it will do all the typical productivity items you would need it to. Not the prettiest or fastest thing on the market, but it's well worth its price and will endure without a fuss.

It is probably just my luck. Right out of the box, the box seal was broken( this maybe Amazon's fault) so it may have been returned previously. Then the user agreement has another seal, has a bunch of abusive terms, giving Toshiba access to your computer. It says that if you do not agree you shouldn't break the seal and should return the item. I wish they said that in item description. Being a Christmas present for my kid, this could have been a disaster. I agreed to the abuse. Then, I found I am the lucky owner of a free Windows 8 upgrade that I did not want( description says win 7).The reason I returned same day was the fact that the item was defective- tracking pad started freezing. Shipped right back( Amazon's returns are amazing, pick up scheduled at home). Thank you Toshiba for getting my kid a new Dell. He loves it!
