5.0 out of 5 stars A solid laptop for under $500, March 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Satellite L755D-S5162 15.6 -Inch Laptop (1.5GHz AMD A6-3420M Processor, 4GB DIMM, 640GB HDD, Windows Home Premium) Silver (Personal Computers)
I bought this laptop a week ago from Amazon. It arrived on time and looked great out of the box. I switched it on and was running windows in less than 5 mts.. The keyboard and scroll pad are nice. Charged the battery to 100% and did video/audio streaming for 3.5 hrs continuously. The battery lasted all along with 13% left after 3.5 hrs. The laptop also felt cool. Excellent graphics and HD pictures. I think the laptop will easily last 5.5 to 6 hrs on normal use. That is value for my money right there. The webcam, mic and LED screen are decent. There are 3 USB ports and there is also a sleep n charge, which means I don't have to have the computer on to charge my USB devices. That is a cool feature. Also, the laptop weighs abt 5.5 lbs and that is not too bad to carry around. I have owned 3 HP laptops before and this is my first Toshiba laptop. I'm very happy with it.

The price is an advantage. $479.99 for a quad core processor with excellent graphics and all standard features. I did not pay tax or shipping to amazon. This is the best deal I found online for a great processing power, excellent battery life, everyday computing laptop. Did I mention it did not produce any heat? I saved around $20 on a cooling pad!

Just one gripe for me: There is no volume control button on the keyboard.

Hi there. I have this laptop as well; you can actually adjust the volume by holding the function key and pressing either 3 or 4 on the keyboard (not the numberpad). I also learned you can additionally mute the volume by pressing and holding the function key, then pressing ESC. Cheers!

Is the RAM expandable to 8gigs if you put in 2 4gb sticks?? Are both slots full upon arrival?

The product description says memory expandable to 8 gb. So I guess you can do it.
