The Intel inside is the Pentium (Model: T4500).  This is one of Intel’s older dual-core processors, as it was released almost 2 years ago.  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.3GHz.  It has an 800MHz front-side bus and 1MB of L2 cache.  The laptop comes with 3GB of DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 4GB.

The screen is a 15.6″ TFT-LCD high-definition widescreen display with Toshiba TruBrite technology and a resolution of 1366×768.  That gives the display a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p HD content.  The display is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M, which uses shared video memory (up to 1341MB allocated from the system memory). The card supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming though with shared memory you probably won’t get great performance on the latest ones.

For storage you get a mid-size 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at a lowly 5400RPM.   The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  The media reader slot supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, miniSD and MultiMediaCard formats for downloading files from your digital camera or other device.

To get connected you get the very basic options with this laptop.  A 10/100 Ethernet LAN port accessible through a standard RJ-45 connector provides the wired network connection.  On the wireless side of things you can use the built-in 802.11 b/g/n adapter. This laptop does not have a built-in webcam, so you’d have to use an external cam connected to a USB port to do any video chatting.

External ports are very basic and include 2 high-speed USB 2.o ports, 1 VGA port, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone out port.  This Satellite comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Toshiba Crapware, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Live Essentials and more.

The laptop measures 11″x15.1″x1.5″ and weighs 5.5 pounds.

You can find the Toshiba Satellite C655-S5060 for around $380.
