Review Toshiba Satellite C55-A-1D5 Notebook


Short-winded. There are many affordable multimedia laptops that even manage up-to-date games in medium to high settings for around 600 Euros (~$813). Toshiba's Satellite C55-A-1D5 is no exception. However, it exhibits shortcomings in ergonomics, build...

Suitable for games in medium to high settings; Sufficient power for demanding software; Rich-in-color screen

Might be too slow for future games in the midterm; Inferior keyboard; Short battery runtime; Full-plastic casing

It's amazing how wide the horizontal viewing angle stability in a laptop with a TN screen from this price range can be.

Not bad, but nothing special


I bought this primarily as a web-surfing laptop. We were not ready to transition to a tablet yet. By default, the Windows 8 Live Tiles will consume about 25% of the cpu. Turn them off to free up your processor cycles. Screen is glossy, not matte. The...

one of the fastest I3 processors at this time ; not much bloatware ; full number pad on keyboard ; USB 3.0 port ; long battery life ; hdmi and vga outputs ; relatively low wattage power source

keyboard misses keystrokes ; offset keyboard due to full number pad ; speakers ; fingerprints ; only ONE usb 3.0 port ; chassis a bit flimsy

I hate Windows 8!!


I tried for about 15 minutes to use Windows 8, then decided to scrap it and installed Windows 7. Now it is a perfect little laptop.

Great little laptop. Not the fastest out there but hard to beat for the money. I'm getting 4-6 hours on the battery

Windows 8 is worse than Vista

Customer Service Rating


I would recommend to anyone looking to purchase any electronics online as my friends have with me.

The customer service of supersedes any expectations of any other company I have dealt with. They are very fast in responding to any concerns or questions I had regarding this product ; After I received the Toshiba, I decided to return it...

As far as customer service is concerned, I have no cons. It was a fast response, they hold true to their word on making sure the customers are satisfied. For me, this was the case

Intel® Core™ i5 Processor for $400??!!!


You cannot find a cheaper laptop anywhere with an Intel® Core™ i5 Processor (after the rebate good thru June 21, 2014, it comes to $400). It did take HOURS to update all the Windows requirements, and another hour to upgrade to Windows 8.1 (which...

Great Laptop - Speed - Great Value


Now that everything is going touch screen, this laptop is put on the market on a lower price. This unit does not have touch screen, but it is loaded with speed and storage. I researched this for a couple of days.

windows 8.1 take practice to get used to

Monitor Color Terrible + Track Pad stopped working


I have had this laptop for less than 2 weeks and the track pad has already stopped working. I understand getting a lemon every once-in-a-while, so we will see when I return.

value, Lightweight, Easy to Set Up, Performance

Display Screen, track pad is terrible, track pad on left side makes it hard
