Toshiba Satellite L555-S7916

 

If you're looking for an inexpensive laptop with a large screen to park in the kitchen or use as a home-office PC, Toshiba's Satellite L555-S7916 is worth a look. The expansive keyboard, which includes a dedicated numeric keypad, raises the comfort...

Very Inexpensive ; A 17.3-inch screen

Mediocre A/V experience ; Astoundingly slow Wi-Fi performance

This Toshiba might make a good kitchen PC, but beware of poor Wi-Fi support and the inferior display image.

Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7930 17.3-inch Notebook

 

Toshiba's Satellite L555D-S7930 may not be the fastest notebook out there, but it looks to give a nice host of features for the price.
