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.

Toshiba Satellite C55-A-1N0 review


This is one of the most powerful desktop replacements you'll find for less than £500

This shouldn’t be a problem if you’re planning to use the C55-A-1N0 as a desktop replacement, though, and it certainly doesn’t detract from what’s otherwise a great value laptop. It’s rare to find such a powerful system for less than £500 and it shows...

Toshiba Satellite C55-A-12U


A £500 laptop with a fast processor, 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Great deal?

Excellent value ; Strong performance ; Good keyboard

Very poor battery life ; Low quality, non touch screen ; Plasticky look and feel

It's a totally average, yet adequate screen, which is about as much as one can expect at this price.

No DVD drive included


Took some getting use to on how to navagate Windows 8 As I was use to Windows 7 and XP until I purchased this Laptop.

Fast processing, good size LCD, light weight and the battery lasts for just over four hours. if I needed to purchase a replacement, I would buy this same model

There was no optical drive included but as the specs said this when I read them I knew that there was no optical drive before I purchased the Laptop

Good value!


Got this for $230, great laptop for the value

Spend your money on a better product


For a $250 dollar laptop it works, but I think you would be better off spending a bit more money for a better product.

Cheap, HDMI, runs decent for a Celeron with 2GB RAM

One RAM slot, the whole bottom has to come off to add more RAM, tried to upgrade to 4GB but could not find compatable RAM locally and will have to special order, and most of all; No Optical Drive, nor is an internal one available on Toshiba's website

Nice for the price


I purchased this laptop elsewhere for about $120 cheaper. I buy these for clients who need a cheap but decent laptop that doesn't have a super slow AMD A series processor in it. The guy Edwin T. below me doesn't know what he's talking about. You can...

Toshiba name ; Has Bluetooth ; Bright and crisp screen ; Decent battery life

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
