Toshiba Satellite S855-S5379
Look no further. The 15.6-inch Satellite S855 laptop offers exactly what you need. Whether you're a master multitasker, entertainment buff or multimedia maniac, the Satellite S855 (model S855-S5379) covers all the bases. High-performance and loaded with amenities, this brand new Ice Blue Brushed Aluminum model makes a bold statement from the inside out.
Now loaded with Windows 8, the Satellite S855 is better than ever because now you can take advantage of its sizable display and large, intuitive touchpad with modern gesture support to navigate the exciting new Windows 8 tiles interface and apps. Step up to a new operating system, fast processing power and better graphics options and get tried, true and tested Toshiba innovation.
It's packed with powerful computing resources, including a SuperMulti drive that can burn a plethora of disc formats, and plenty of ports and storage to give you the freedom to expand, or hold more files and media. 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.
Be ready to take advantage of the next big revolution in PC computing: Windows 8. The new Start screen has all of the information you care about in one place, such as your contacts, the weather, and the next appointment on your calendar. Start Page is a completely reinvented interface with interactive tiles that remain up-front and center--and they dynamically change and update in real-time.
With the power and innovation of your new Windows 8 Toshiba PC, you get apps that are always on and easily accessible from your Start screen. You'll also get new, built-in apps for the things you do most, like new Microsoft Mail, Calendar, SkyDrive, Photos, People, and Messaging.
On your Microsoft 8 Toshiba PC, the Charms bar replaces the Start button, offering quick access to search, sharing features, devices and settings. Enjoy the convenience of seeing everything front and center, right where you need it.
For a difference you can see and feel in HD or 3D, multitasking or multimedia, get the visibly smart, 3rd generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor with top-of-the-line performance for your most demanding tasks. Effortlessly move between applications with smart multitasking, delivered by Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. Enjoy the thrill of an automatic burst of speed when you need it with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. Experience your movies, photos and games smoothly and seamlessly with a suite of visual enhancements built into the processor--no extra hardware required.
Not all keyboards are created equal. The premium raised-tile keyboard on select laptops sets itself apart because it's handsomely handy. Whether you're doing homework, writing a letter or updating your social status, it makes typing more comfortable.
Now it's easier to peruse web pages, work with long documents, and show off photos with the larger touchpad, which supports the new Windows 8 Modern gestures like scrolling and pinch zoom--giving you the freedom and fluidity or movement as of a touch tablet or smartphone.
Your technology collection is getting bigger and faster. Fortunately, your laptop can keep up with the best of them, thanks to built-in USB 3.0 ports. You'll not only get much quicker transfer speeds, but your USB 3.0 devices won't require a separate power cable either, unlike eSATA technology.
Another Toshiba innovation, USB Sleep and Charge lets you power your smartphone and other devices even when the laptop's asleep or off. It's perfect for travelers and gear heads. And it's a great way to charge a dead device when you carry your PC around.
With support for Full 1080p HD video and sound, the HDMI connection on your PC lets you enjoy high-end multimedia on the go, or at home on your bigscreen TV.
Make older movies, photos and clips look a lot better on your HDTV or HD laptop screen--with Toshiba Resolution+ technology. It's an exclusive innovation that converts standard definition DVD movies and instantly improves sharpness and color in real time for a picture that looks and feels more like HD.
Here's how it works: Color Correction and RGB Gamma improve brightness, color saturation, contrast and hue. Next, Advanced Color Image fine-tunes environmental and character colors, like sky, grass, leaves and skin, to give these images a more natural appearance.

It's a great computer. The only drawback is Windows 8. Fortunately I found a small add-on program that restores the Windows 7 desktop.Published 23 months ago by Joseph S Swinglish
