Review Toshiba Satellite C855-2J4 Notebook

 

Update in gray. The Toshiba Satellite C855-2J4 is a 15.6-inch entry-level notebook. Equipped with an Intel Core i5-3230M processor and AMD Radeon HD 7610M GPU, the notebook is one of the more powerful models in Toshiba's entry-level series.

Number pad, Pleasant touchpad surface, Display with ample contrast, CPU clock speed remains at maximum during the stress test, 1 TB HDD and 8 GB RAM, The high contrast ratio is a definite plus

Many glossy surfaces, Single USB 3.0 port, No Gigabit LAN, Glossy display, Fairly short battery life, ...but we would have preferred a non-glare display panel

Review Toshiba Satellite L855-15U Notebook

 

Cool design. The L855 leaves a nice impression with its steel-blue brushed aluminum chassis, remaining pleasantly cool to the touch. Our test will show whether it works as smoothly as its appearance suggests.

Beautiful brushed aluminium finish, Special keys well-arranged, Palm rest feels great, The brushed aluminum case with its subtle blue cast. The silent and cool operation mode. Toshiba's software

Lid easily deformable, Tiny arrow keys, Small return key, Ports too closely arranged, Improved build quality for the lid. More space between the different ports

Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7022 Review

Review of the Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4

 

This rig has some gaming gusto but is priced too high for the performance it offers.

Beautiful display, Loaded with ports, Lots of storage space, Harman Kardon speakers

Cheaper gaming laptops perform just as well, HD DVD instead of Blu-ray

At $2,199, the Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4 offers decent performance, but its scores were so close to the much more affordable Gateway P-6831FX that we're hard-pressed to recommend it. For $850 less you get comparable gaming scores (better on some...

Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4

 

The Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4 is an attractively priced SLI gaming laptop that should bring new gaming talent out of the woodwork.

Appeals to budget gamers. SLI configuration. Copious amount of RAM. Fast-spinning hard drives. Six USB ports. Sporting a new Penryn processor.

Cumbersome-looking. Small battery.

The Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4 may not have performance bragging rights, but the reasonable price tag should bring new gaming talent out of the woodwork.

Toshiba Satellite X205-SLI4 Review

 

Despite its best multimedia intentions, Toshiba's X205-SLi4 notebook is always now going to be criticized for having an HD-DVD drive rather than Blu-Ray; but is this a single chink in its vast armor, or a sign of disappointment to come? SlashGear...
