Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 Laptop

The Intel inside this laptop is the Celeron (model 900).  This is a single core processor running at 2.2GHz.  The CPU has an 800MHz front-side bus and 1MB of L2 cache.  It’s a pretty slow processor by today’s standards.  This isn’t the computer you want for gaming. This system comes with 2GB and can take a maximum of 4GB.

The screen is a 15.6″ TFT-LCD high-definition widescreen display with TruBrite technology and 1366 x 768 resolution. This display is driven by  the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M.  It features up to 892MB of Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0 and supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming.

For storage you get a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) rotating at 5400RPM.  This is a smallish hard drive at a slower speed.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. The multiformat media reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, miniSD and MultiMediaCard formats (shared slot may require an adapter, not included).

The networking options are your standard complement of 10/100 wired Ethernet through the RJ-45 connector and the 802.11 b/g/n wireless adapter for those of you wanting to be free of cables when you access the Web.  This laptop does not have a modem nor does it have Bluetooth support. Other ports include a VGA port for connecting an external monitor, 2 USB 2.0 ports, headphone jack and microphone jack. It does at least have a webcam and microphone built into the bezel for video chatting.

This laptop comes with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition.  Other software includes Microsoft® Silverlight™ , Norton Internet Security™ 2010 (30-day trial), Microsoft® Windows Live Essentials including Photo Gallery, Messenger, Mail and Writer., TOSHIBA Bulletin Board™, TOSHIBA ReelTime™, WildTangent Game Console, TOSHIBA Disc Creator, TOSHIBA Recovery Disk Creator, Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007 Edition (60-day trial), Microsoft® Works Version 9.0, TOSHIBA Media Controller.

The laptop measures 15.1” x 11.0” x 1.10”/1.50” and weighs 5.5 lbs.   The 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack can provide up to 4.5 hours of unplugged power.  Or you can use the included 65W AC adapter when you need to recharge.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049 laptop for around $370, but I would spend a bit more and get a better system.
