Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277


The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 offers category leading performance and a healthy feature set, but the ho-hum design and short battery life keep it from ranking higher.

Great performance from fourth-gen Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia graphics. Touch screen. DVD drive reads and burns to disc. A sizeable 1TB hard drive offers lots of storage capacity

Display is only 720p. Battery life is a little short

Looking for a desktop replacement notebook for less than a grand? The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 has plenty to offer, like a 15.6-inch touch screen, a rich feature set, and superb performance thanks to a fourth-generation Intel Core i7-4700MQ...

Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277


The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 is the latest to promise this to the world, but deliver significantly less. It's painfully close to being a near-perfect laptop, offering a new fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, a reasonably good Nvidia GeForce 740M...

With a new Intel Core i7 CPU, an Nvidia GPU, a 1TB hard drive, and a touch screen, the Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 is a genre-buster laptop.

Hitting its $999 price clearly required some compromises, and the low-resolution 15-inch screen takes the fun out of gaming and media watching.

The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 comes close to being a great mainstream slim gaming laptop, but it's undone by an unimpressive display.

Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277


Toshiba's Satellite S55t-A5277 has the power needed to handle anything you can throw at it, but a poor display and short battery life hold it back.

Powerful Core i7 processor; Impressive graphics capabilities; Excellent keyboard

Dim low-res display; Poor viewing angles; Below average battery life

The $989 Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 is a gorgeous powerhouse of a laptop that can not only handle your most intense class work, but also lets you blow off steam with some of the hottest PC games. Unfortunately, its dim, low-resolution display belies...

"Product is flymsy and support is non existant"


Poorly constructed. Toshiiba has one of the worst warranty departments I have seen. Laptop falls apart and can cause the screen to break. Toshiba tries to get you to mail t to the laptop at your own expense. Then they charge you additional for...

Breaks way before it should and warranty is in name only

"Great computer but takes an eternity to boot up UGH!!"


The computer it self is awesome super fast, touchscreen, runs windows 8. BUT since the first day I had it it took 5 minutes to boot up. My 8 year old computer that it was replacing takes less time then that!!! Also it is 5 or 6lbs but that is my fault...

Very fast, lots of cool new features, touch screen, 3 usb ports, cd/dvd drive

OH MY GOD did I just die waiting for this computer to start-up?

"Not as good as the T-Sat., s75-A7222 at Costco for 999"


There is a much better laptop offer that no one is reporting nor is there any reviews on. Toshiba offers a Satellite s75-A7222 for $999 at cost-co that has 16GB RAM and 1TB HDD. I don't understand why no one is raving about it. on Aug 10, 2013

yah, that right

yah, that's right
