Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Satellite C855-10Z 15.6 inch Laptop - Silver (Intel Core i5-2450M 2.5/3.1GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium, USB 3.0) (Personal Computers)
Had this new laptop for three weeks or so now...so quick review:
* Specs (i5/intel hd 3000) mean its a quick machine and for the money i cannot find anything better..impressive. RAM and memory also in plentiful supply. Also the partition of the hard drive is left as one C: drive which is frankly about time. Really good. It will run company of heroes at fullish settings which is really impressive for integrated graphics.
* Connectivity is great and includes hdmi, 3 x usb, sd slot, ethernet and rgb. What more do you need.
* Screen is clear and bright and overall the unit is good looking including the finish
* Software, aside from the usual toshiba bloatware you get a 95% working office! I have a license anyway but for occasional users this is ideal.
* Keyboard...its weird basically. Similar to a spectrum with rubber keys. Have they skimped to cover the other elements of cost or is this how they are now? May take some getting used to but hopefully will do so. May annoy many who use it.
******* EDIT: Used to keyboard now, dont know how i put up with the older type...weird at first then actually pretty good, you type quicker and its less effort on your fingers....
* Speakers...pointless, tinny and naff. But will not really affect me so not a deal breaker. EDIT....Still rubbish.
