5.0 out of 5 stars so I sucked it up and shelled out the extra money, July 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Satellite S55-B5258 15.6-Inch Laptop (Personal Computers)
I'm giving this five stars even though it's probably closer to four, only because the only other review here was written by an idiot. To be honest expecting a laptop to have a CD-DVD drive as a matter of course these days is a bit much. Not that they don't exist, but the idea that they should be a standard feature on absolutely all laptops is frankly sort of ridiculous. Next time you want a niche feature that is quickly becoming completely irrelevant for most users, be sure to actually check to make sure the computer you're buying has it.

That said, this computer is very powerful for its price. You can get a Lenovo or even an HP Envy with similar specs for cheaper (the lenovo particularly if you look when they are holding their sales, which tend to be insane) but I ordered this laptop to replace a broken one and cheaper machines took about three weeks to ship at the earliest, so I sucked it up and shelled out the extra money. Overall, not a bad investment whatsoever.
