Review Toshiba Satellite L855-15U Notebook

 

Cool design. The L855 leaves a nice impression with its steel-blu

Beautiful brushed aluminium finish; Special keys well-arranged; Palm rest feels great

Lid easily deformable; Tiny arrow keys; Small return key; Ports too closely arranged

That the lid can be bent out of shape so easily - so much that it can be forced to touch the panel itself.

Toshiba Satellite L855-148 review

 

The launch of Windows 8 may have inspired a whole new generation of notebook-tablet hybrids, but the Toshiba Satellite L855-148 proves that the traditional style of laptop still has a lot to offer.

An excellent all-round Windows 8 laptop – no gimmicks, just high performance and an impressive specification
