Toshiba Satellite C655D Laptop Computer Review

If you have been looking for a laptop computer that is fast, efficient, fully functional, affordable, with top of the line features, then the Toshiba Satellite C655D Laptop Computer is exactly what you need.

Released in mid 2010, the C655D is an entry-level laptop with a built-in AMD Radeon HD 6310 GPU that makes it perfect for home, business, school, and moderate gaming use.

I was given this laptop as a gift and I am so grateful. I had never owned a laptop prior to receiving this one, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to be given a chance to use one of the best laptops made. Now, I know that there are many different laptops available on the market today, but if you need a laptop for everyday use, then the Toshiba Satellite C655D, in my opinion, is the best choice.

The Toshiba C655D-S5139 is different from some of the other C655 models, because it has a faster 1.6GHz dual-core processor, which makes the computer more suitable for business purposes and for people who like to use more than one application at a time. The laptop comes pre-installed with a Windows 7 operating system and has a variety of features such as an AMD E-Series E-350 CPU, Radeon HD 6310 GPU, 3GB DDR3 RAM, 250GB HDD (5400rpm), SuperMulti DVD, 10/100 Ethernet, standard stereo speakers, 802.11b/g/n wireless, 720p video resolution, microphone/headphone ports, two 2.0 USB ports, a 6-Cell Li-Ion Battery, and has a large 15.6″ widescreen full color LCD display.

The Toshiba Satellite C655D also has a memory card reader that allows you to transfer files quickly, efficiently, and easily from our your camcorder, digital camera, smart phone, MP3 player and you can share home movies and playlists with memory sticks and SD cards. It has a dual-core processor which allows you to multitask and do more things at once, a touch pad with multi-touch capabilities that gives the ability to tap and swipe through images on the presentation screen with a simple brush of a finger. Unlike so many other laptops that are much more expensive on the market today, the Toshiba 655D has a full-size keyboard with a numeric 10-key pad.

The keys are large, which makes typing easier, faster, comfortable, and entering data into the computer becomes a smoother and more streamlined process. The LED backlit display helps the computer’s battery life to last much longer, warm up quicker, and use less power, and the rechargeable 6-Cell Li-ion Battery Pack helps you to stay connected longer when you are not at home. This Toshiba laptop is also EPEAT Gold Compliant and Energy Star Compliant. In fact 93% of Toshiba Laptops, Tablet PCs, and Netbooks have consistently met the Energy Star 4.0 standard since it was founded in 2007.

The Toshiba C655D-S5139 model differs slightly from some of its peers in that it does not come with an incorporated webcam or microphone, so it cannot be used for web-chat or web-conferencing. However, the laptop does have many other wonderful features, such as Draft N wireless for connectivity on-the-go, a dual processor, and a 6-cell battery for 3.5 hours of uninterrupted use.

For the work that I do, this laptop works very well. In the beginning I was not used to the touch pad, but I quickly adjusted and was able to maneuver the pointer anywhere I wanted it to go. When I go on the internet, the computer’s inbuilt wireless capability connects quickly and easily to the Cisco Router that is in my home. The display screen is a large 15.6″, the colors are vivid, and the pictures are very clear. The laptop is light enough for me to place it on my lap, on a table, or take it with me wherever I go. The sound quality is excellent and the incoming audio is unobstructed. I do not have anything negative to say about this laptop. It looks great, processes data quickly, is effective, and works wonderfully.

The Toshiba C655D-S5139 is no longer available, but the company has other high quality C655D models that are equal or even better that work and operate just the same. Many of the new models have webcams and microphones. If you go to their website you can see the variety of C655D laptop computers that Toshiba makes. Excellence is truly what Toshiba is about.

I highly recommend the Toshiba C655D to anyone who is looking for an affordable, fully functional, efficient, easy to use laptop with state-of-the-art features. It is a perfect choice for students, families, small businesses, and entrepreneurs who work at home.
