Review: Toshiba Satellite P755

 

Though it wins points for great graphics performance, Toshiba's Satellite P755 laptop is, overall, too rickety to recommend.

Big hard-drive. Some amazing gaming performance for a relative budget machine. The price is certainly right

Cheap build, with lots of unfinished elements. Horrible keyboard. Extremely dim screen. Major concerns about battery capacity and reliability

Toshiba Satellite P755-113 review

 

Formidable graphics and 3D, but it's not without problems

The Toshiba Satellite P755 is an impressive all-purpose laptop, if you can get past the less-than-impressive design. The plastic exterior is nice for a cheaper, less specced-out machine, but it doesn't really convey "3D multimedia powerhouse." Still,...

My favorite laptop yet!

 

My new Toshiba laptop is definitely one of the best laptops I've ever owned. The i7 core processor speed is extremely fast, especially when combined with the new Rockmelt browser. I love the wood grain feel & look, which leaves no fingerprints. The...
