Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104

 

The Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 is a budget-class 15-inch laptop will give you five plus hours of unplugged computing.

Sluggish performance. No USB 3.0. Stingy feature set. Smallish touchpad.

At $270, the Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5104 is a decent deal, but it's far from a great deal. Its AMD E-300 processor can't match the performance of similarly priced Intel-based laptops, and it comes up way short in terms of features. If you need a...

Worthless

 

Don't buy this or return it right away if someone gives it to you as a gift.

A very close friend asked me to pick out a laptop for his wife. I selected this model and am very satisfied with it. For $350 it does anything you ask it to do, with a Windows Expierence Index of 4.7 for graphics and all the rest high 5's or low 6's....
